It’s been so long since Roger Clemens testified in front of Congress that I forgot about half the shenanigans that went down (except the now infamous “misremembers part”). Initially Clemens showed his feelings on the matter, saying he wouldn’t call PED users “cheaters.” In a pathetic effort to save himself, Clemens dragged his wife’s name through the mud and said Andy Pettitte had things mistaken.
Now Clemens doesn’t have much of a defense. Public opinion and Congressional opinion is now speaking and Clemens will have to face trial on charges of perjury obstruction of justice. Even though we all well know and believe that he was juicing since his Toronto days, he’s still maintaining steadfastly that he is innocent. Clemens is taking his lies so far that he is willing to go to jail for them. Here’s what he tweeted late Thursday:
I never took HGH or Steroids. And I did not lie to Congress. I look forward to challenging the Governments accusations, and hope people will keep an open mind until trial. I appreciate all the support I have been getting. I am happy to finally have my day in court.
Happy to have my day in court? Damn Roger, they will eat you alive and make you misremember even more. I can’t believe he’s so willing to enter the torture chamber. George Costanza wouldn’t even go this far.
