I finally got to listen to Roger Clemens' interview on Mike and Mike yesterday. So what do I think? Not much. Clemens makes Alex Rodriguez look like a master of the media in comparison. How funny is that?
When A-Rod had a controversial book written about him, he politely told reporters he wasn't going to discuss the book. Clemens, on the other hand, thought it was a good idea to give the new book American Icon: The Fall of Roger Clemens and the Rise of Steroids in America's Pastime, a gazillion dollars of free publicity.
The Rocket's move was so bad, it made A-Rod's kissing himself in the mirror look sensible. There were so many ridiculous parts to Roger's interview:
* His son "accidentally" interrupting him to be asked to be taken to school
* Clemens talking about his family's history of heart disease preventing him from doing steroids, and mentioning his stepfather - somebody who wasn't related to him - as an example
* How much he talked about his charity work, as if that negates everything else said about him
* His continuing to characterize Andy Pettitte as "misremembering"
For some reason, Mike and Mike stuck to steroids, and didn't ask him about the women. Or about his penchant for icy hot linament on a certain body part. Thank goodness for small favors.
