Roger Clemens is Guilty: The Proof? He Didn’t Bawl Like Brett Favre
I came to the conclusion that Clemens was absolutely guilty after watching the latest bawl-a-thon on Sports Center.
Brett Favre was blubbering like a little girl who just got punched in the arm by her big bro.
Not just tearing up, he was bawling, fer chrissakes.
Give me a friggin’ break. Learn from Bob Knight, the incomparable basketball coach, who just retired from Texas Tech after being unceremoniously booted from Indiana University. Half the basketball fans hate his guts. HATE his guts. But when he retired, He didn’t blubber. He just retired.
Roger Clemens just got pister and pister when he was in front of those lily white congressmen. Guilty as hell. Congress besmirched is good name? Ruined his family? Mad. No tears. Maybe the roids cause that, but I don’t think so.
Mark Messier the hall-of-famer had to wipe the snot as he bawled his way through his Hall of Fame induction. Any Hall of Fame induction now is a bunch of rich, pampered jocks, sniffling and choking thru their induction.
Jocks get busted up all the time on the field – broken limbs, teeth knocked out, hell a hockey player got his throat slashed by a surgical skate blade and he skated to the bench.
Don’t tell me it’s nerves and emotions. Favre has been in a kajillion press conferences. So it’s not the nerves of the moment. Emo? Well check them at the door, at least enough that you don’t cry in front of the cameras.
Terrell Owens cried. I can’t think of all the others, but you know there are a bunch of them
Wake Up America. It’s time for Jocks – Men and Women – to stop crying during press conferences. Or, if they feel the tears coming, get up and leave.
Roger Clemens, fire up the tear ducts, it’s your only chance.
Now don’t you go ranking out Mark Messier, or I WILL have to come out there and kick your non-hockey-loving ass.
I cried like a baby watching Gretzky’s retirement ceremony.
@Gretchen: Yes ma’am. You cried watching television? I just don’t get that! Especially a “news” event. If it was a tear-jerker movie, maybe…
I for one was very touched by Brett’s sincere emotion of the moment. I think it makes him even more appealing. I like when these macho athletes show their honest human emotional side…but of course, I’m just a silly, sentimental, emotional mom and grandma who cries at the slightest hint of raw emotion. Guilty. I’m going to have to get the ‘real’ scoop on you from Nancy one of these days Mr. Iron Man.
@Joy: welp, we disagree. If his dog had died, I could understand it, but otherwise, he should get a grip.
I also don’t buy it when atheletes play a game after a close relative dies. ie: Favre playing after his dad died – “because that’s what he would have wanted.” Bull. He played because he loved the game, and hanging around the funeral home is depressing. I’d like to hear a jock say that once.
Fortunately I will never have to face that situation of having a press conference when I retire, so I can be Mr. Iron Man.
Welp, we agree….on one thing. Playing a game after a close relative dies. Because he loved the game and hanging around the funeral home is depressing….yep, I think that’s exactly why he played the game. But…I’m not ready to tar and feather him for that.
Oh, and we agree on one other thing….Roger Clemens is as guilty as hell.
@Joy: How many times have you heard of an athlete competing after the loss of a family member? It happens a lot, so I’m painting them all with a the same brush. The are self centered and pampered.
Oh for gods sake, I didn’t see this but it sounds like I missed an entirely pathetic show. What is wrong with Favre these days?
