PLAYERS: Roger Clemens
I haven’t been following the Roger Clemens trial because, quite frankly, I don’t care. I’m tired of Clemens. I’m tired of talk about performance-enhancing drugs. I don’t think, at this point, the findings of a government-led witch hunt are going to change many people’s opinion of Clemens. I’m definitely not a legal junkie. And, honestly, I’m not really a fan of “celebrity” trials that don’t involve decidedly sordid or salacious subject matter. (It’s true. Michael Jackson and O.J. Simpson have spoiled me). I’m completely indifferent to the whole spectacle. Apparently I’m not the only one failing to muster any interest in this case. Here’s the AP: The trial is in its fifth week, and the tedium cost the proceedings another member of the jury Tuesday. Juror No. 1, a supermarket cashier, became the second member of the panel to be dismissed for sleeping. Her departure leaves 14 jurors, including two alternates. So there you go.
