Rocket Launches

Unread postby pup » Tue Apr 04, 2006 11:51 pm

Roger Clemens was discussing his future Tuesday at the Astros season opener when he responded to a question about his health after the World Baseball Classic with a comment that some might consider racially insensitive.
Clemens, who broke down late last season with injuries, said he felt fine after the WBC and left the tournament impressed by the quality of the international teams.

But he made a questionable comment when speaking about the devotion of the Japanese and South Korean fans.

"None of the dry cleaners were open, they were all at the game, Japan and Korea," Clemens said. "So we couldn't get any dry cleaning done out there, but I guess the neatest thing is that 50,000 of them were at Anaheim Stadium."

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

Anyone else hear the story about how Clemens horrified his WBC teammates by applying Icy Hot to his genitalia before his starts?

I've used Icy Hot on my wrist, and it burned like a mother. On the jewels? I can't even imagine ...

The best quote by Clemens was "I don't like to be comfortable out there."

Now we know why this guy has looked so intense and angry for the last 20 years. It's obviously worked.

Maybe I should try that before my next board meeting at work. If nothing else, it would make for a good column. :shock:

Does anyone else think this is just fucking with people to see how many rookies try it? I can see him laughing about this after the cameras are off.
