Everything Roger Clemens learned, he learned from Eddie Murphy’s Raw

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

with the release of American Icon: The Fall of Roger Clemens and the Rise of Steroids in America’s Pastime today, Roger decided he needed to reiterate his version of the story; you know the one, it’s similar to something like this:

He got busted coming out of another woman’s house.  His woman saw him come out, knew that the woman lived there and didn’t say shit.

Wait till they got home and said:
“What the hell was you doing in that bitch’s house?”

You know what the man said?
“Wasn’t me.”

“I looked right in your face!”

“Wasn’t me.”

“Well, I’m supposed to be a fool, right?”

“Hey. Wasn’t me.”

You know what the woman said?
“Maybe it wasn’t you.”

you know what they say: ignorance is bliss!

the Houston media almost gets it right….

Jose De Jesus Ortiz makes it appear that he related Tejada to Lugo and asked McLane a pointed question to that comparision:

Years after releasing shortstop Julio Lugo a day after he was accused of spousal abuse in a case in which Lugo ultimately was not convicted, McLane was asked if he had changed his stance on having criminals on his club.

but on his Houston Chronicle blog, De Jesus Ortiz then frames the question as such:

Here’s one of my questions: What do you tell fans who believed that you wanted your players to behave a certain way? How do you rationalize keeping a criminal essentially on your team?

if De Jesus Ortiz did in fact ask McLane about Tejada in relation to Lugo, then i salute him, for not only having the balls to make the proper comparision, but also the mental acuity to relate the two.  they are the exact same issue, which is: how does McLane defend treating one player as a pariah and another as a friend who deserves a hug?

McLane, ever the Southern Baptist, Baylor regent, probably doesn’t see a problem.  i am guessing Julio Lugo would think differently.

gonna be a great year for baseball and the Astros!
