What Do You Want Me to Do, What Do you Want Me To Do?

Roger Clemens in filing his lawsuit for defamation truly is opening his own Pandora’s Box.

After listening to the lengthy recorded phone call between Clemens and Brian MacNamee, it’s absolutely ludicrous for anyone to believe that Clemens did not know that MacNamee injected Clemens with steroids.

Clemens’s response to the numerous times MacNamee said ‘what do you want me to do?’ was absolutely nothing. On the last few times, Clemens had a slight response i.e. basically that he needs to think about it.

Not once did I ever Clemens say “I want you to tell the truth, I want you to retract your statement.”

When MacNamee told Clemens that he would go to jail for him, Clemens did not respond ‘I just want you tell the truth.’

I don’t know what his lawyers are advising Clemens but the course of action being explored, the interview conducted on 60 Minutes, the recorded telephone call and his forthcoming testimony yet to be heard by Congress all seem to be heading down a road which will arrive at a dead end somewhere in the twilight zone.

Clemens made something comment about if he had been using steroids then why was he not pulling things around with his teeth. Clearly, the steroids have effected his brain. We all know that baseball players never compete in American Strongmen competions!

I think I'm starting tosee that third ear coming out of his forehead -- the long nose too.
