I agree with everything Mark says about Roger Clemens being indicted:
And after that, when he finally dies and goes to hell, he will be sentenced to a demon shoving a pineapple up his ass every day for all eternity — for the crime of wearing pinstripes after being a member of the Red Sox. Yeah, fuck you too, Johnny Damon.
But I also agree with what Clint, one of the people who left a comment on his post, had to say:
Why is congress even involved? This is government overreach. I don’t care if using steroids (honestly, baseball needs anything it can get to make it interesting) breaks the rules — since when is it’s congress’s business anyway?
Can someone who pays more attention to this stuff than I do correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t this the same set of hearings that were preceded by Clemens wandering through Congressional offices, signing autographs and posing for pictures for lawmakers and staffers? Thou shalt not lie, true, and thou shall never, ever, make excuses for Roger Clemens. But I do remember a carnival-like atmosphere surrounding those hearings, so I can’t say I’m surprised Clemens treated the whole thing as a joke.
