et tu Roger?

Roger Clemens is having a rough year. First he was outed for his steroid use. We're talking about one of the top 4 or 5 pitchers of all time...and top 10-15 players of all time.

So he denies it. He fights it. He goes public with his lack of steroid use.

And then he gets accused of having an affair. Things get worse. He's had troubles before. He quit baseball a few times to spend more time with his family (Michael Jordan did the same thing and put more time in with his family by joining a baseball team and going on the road for a year) and kept coming back. He's had some rough years and some brilliant - but this would be his roughest.

And then Brutus the Barber Beefcake's wife comes out and tells the world that you hit on her Rog.

I find it hard to believe that you'd cheat on your wife - but I find it impossible to believe that you could ever steal Brutus' wife.

Here are the facts:

His name is Brutus and you never mess with anyone named Brutus - it's just simple math.

He was a beefcake. Why would his wife ever leave him or cheat on him? Even with one of the all time greats - she's going to leave a beefcake? I don't think so.

He was a barber. That's just a go to skill that you don't lose. Just look at his hair as evidence, this guy had marketable skills. Once Roger's career is over, what is he going to ball back on. Well it's not cutting hair, I can tell you that.

No, I'm thinking you were barking up the wrong tree that day Roger. It's just not going to happen...


  1. I heard John Daly's wife too. Imagine Brutus and a drunken, three-iron armed, irrate John Daly meting RC in a dark alley. Ugly.

  2. irate. i'm stupid.

  3. Most ballplayers today are taking homeopathic human growth hormone oral spray because it's safe, undetectable, and legal for over the counter sales. As time goes on it seems it might be considered as benign a performance enhancer as coffee, aspirin, red bull, chewing tobacco, and bubble gum.
