A quick thought on the Roger Clemens verdict

Roger Clemens is not guilty of lying to Congress during the MLB steroids investigation. This case is oddly reminiscent of the not-too-distant John Edwards misuse of campaign funds case. In both, there really wasn't enough evidence to convict. In both, the defendant is an arrogant, entitled, selfish sleazeball who you kinda just want to punch in the face...but that doesn't make them criminals. Unfortunately, it's not against the law to be an a$$h-l-. And I say this as someone who used to like both these guys, Edwards moreso than Clemens. The good news is now we can move on and we don't have to hear about either of these guys anymore. Or, at least one can hope.

Here endeth the rant.

Yay Yankees for winning 10-games in a row - *this* is the kind of sports news I want to write about! My team is making me proud - can't wait to see you guys in person at Yankee Stadium again next week!
