Things That Pissed Me Off Last Week In The World Of Sports

Certain things in the world are black and white. You don’t wear white after Labor Day. You don’t hook up with your buddy’s girlfriend. You should always tip at least 15-percent.

Roger Clemens: Still a lying jerk

So let me get this straight. Now that Roger Clemens has been acquitted of all the federal charges against him involving lying to Congress, I am supposed to believe that Brian McNamee supplied Andy Pettitte and Chuck Knoblauch and even Debbie Clemens with the juice, but Clemens never let McNamee, the trainer whose salary he was paying, touch him with steroids or HGH? Really? C'...

Roger Clemens cried because he Deceived Congress

Not guilty verdicts always brings up the "seriously?" tears in guilty men. Men don't cry unless they actually con people in his own favor. You don't see Brian McNamee crying today. Bud Selig is just hoping the media does not 'pitch fork and shovel' him over the Adderall Era now. Congress is already salivating over wasting America's time on those...
