What do all three have in common? The first two have been convicted of lying to the Feds and now Clemens appears on his way as he was indicted yesterday afternoon for making false statements to Congress.
Of the three arrests, this has to be the dumbest. At least Martha and the ex-Governor were trying to make some money. Clemens pounded his fist on the table before Congress and said he has never taken steroids. It seems like all he was trying to do is protect his ego.
Aside from the fact that Congressional hearings on drugs in baseball is a joke and a complete waste of time, Roger would have been much better served by pulling a Mark McGwire (not here to talk about the past) or Sammy Sosa (my English is no good) instead of pulling this non-sense.
The only people who have ever gotten in to real trouble over steroid use are the liars. Barry Bonds is going to trial over it next spring and Clemens is on the way.
The moral of the story for us average Joes is to be honest and if that won't work, just say nothing. I posted this back in June and the Clemens arrest shows why I'm right. Trying to cover your ass or explain away your behavior will just get you in trouble.
