Clemens Likely to Face Law Suit

An interview of Roger Clemens is scheduled to air on 60 Minutes this Wednesday. In the interview, Clemens is expected to claim innocence (again) but this time he could just be incriminating himself further. Brian McNamee's lawyer is set to sue Clemens, should he claim that his client's testimony was untruthful.

Personally, I don't feel bad for Clemens one bit. Clemens' drug use as described in the Mitchell Report is on par with that of Barry Bonds. Clemens' obnoxious attitude is in that category as well. Of course, Clemens could be innocent. And the entire Micthell Report could be a Red Sox conspiracy. People will believe what they want to believe, even in the face of evidence to the contrary.

So I hope Clemens doesn't dance around the issue on Sunday. That way McNamee can provide even more details on Roger's illegal drug use. It will be hard for Yankees fans to claim that Clemens is innocent, and that the Mitchell Report is a Red Sox conspiracy, should a court of law find McNamee's testimony to be truthful.

BOSTON, Feb. 6 - "Gentlemen, mount your ducks," Boston Mayor Thomas Menino said, officially starting the Patriots' duck boat parade down Boylston Street Tuesday.

Jonathan Kraft, son of the Patriots owner, rode in the lead float and hoisted the Vince Lombardi Trophy throughout the ceremony, refusing to let anyone else touch it.

"No chants about the Yankees today," said the son of the Patriots owner. "Looks like we've finally made it."

MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 3 - Republican presidential nominee John McCain stunned the nation last night when he announced that he's asking Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling to join the ticket as vice presidential running mate.

"Curt is a great American and he's not afraid to share his opinion," McCain told the delegates at the Republican National Convention.

"I'm flattered," Schilling wrote in his blog. "But I'm not sure I have time. I've already got a lot on my plate. It's not easy being a major league pitcher, pitching coach, player-manager, team physician, traveling secretary, and team historian. I've also got my new gaming company. Plus, Bud Selig has asked me to develop a reliable urine test for HGH. I've had to cut back on my work with Habitat for Humanity, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Army Corps of Engineers. But I respect Senator McCain and it's something I'll consider.

Schilling for Vice-president? That's hilarious..

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 29 - The Red Sox won their third World Series title in five years last night, completing a sweep of Joe Torre's Dodgers with a 9-8 victory.

There was considerable confusion before the game when a troupe of Irish step-dancers entertained while the Dropkick Murphys performed "I'm Shipping Up to Boston." It was the handiwork of former Sox choreographer Dr. Charles Steinberg. California fans had no idea what was going on, but road-tripping members of Red Sox Nation enjoyed the show and stuck around for a postgame encore starring Papelbon.

"I guess this is a different constituency," said Steinberg. "It was kind of weird to see thousands of our fans leaving a World Series game that was still tied in the eighth inning."

BOSTON, Nov. 29 - Red Sox CEO Larry Lucchino today announced the latest ticket-price hike for the 2009 season at Fenway Park. Box seats by the dugout will sell for $15,000 per game, with tickets for Yankee games going for $20,000.

"It's all about revenue streams and keeping up with the Yankees," said Lucchino.

Lucchino would not comment on rumors that the Sox plan to open the 2009 season against the Dodgers in Monte Carlo, but denied an Internet story that the ball club plans to change its name.

"We are not changing our name to the Boston Gold Sox," said Lucchino.[/quote]

I can only imagine the questions Rather, a huge Yankee fan, is going to serve up. 'Softball' is probably not accurate enough.

Looks like Clemens is already working on his excuse. He swears he was only using B-12, just like Rafael Palmeiro. Man, he should just learn to shut his mouth. Every time he opens it he makes it worse.
