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.
