I didn’t really cover the Roger Clemens hoopla that has gone on since 2008, but I thought it was important to mention it now that it’s over. Clemens, who was tried on six counts of lying to congress about using steroids back in 2008, was aquitted off all charges yesterday after a 10-week trial that wasted a lot of people’s time and money.
“I’m very thankful,” Clemens told the AP. “It’s been a hard five years.”
This trial was a total waste of time. Clemens got off, but he certainly didn’t win as this probably won’t mean a whole lot to Hall of Fame voters and quite a few fans. A lot of taxpayer dollars were wasted and nobody won except the lawyers who perpetuated this tragedy and got rich off it. Glad to see we can at least begin to move on now.
