Go get 'em Roger

Gone East readers from last summer and fall will remember that I'm not very much of a Roger Clemens fan. But he rose a couple points in my book today. He screwed the Yankees. Baseball:

After learning that Roger Clemens had officially un-retired on Monday, the Yankees made an immediate, internal decision to avoid a public squabble with the right-hander. Instead of debating whether they'd been lied to, executives specifically urged George Steinbrenner not to lash out -- advice that, for once, he accepted. The Boss issued a statement in which he benignly called Clemens, "a teacher and a leader".

By the way, Roger's now in the National League. He gets to bat. I'm starting a pool on how long before Roger-the-headhunter gets a friendly little "welcome", from an opposing pitcher, to the league where there's no designated hitter to hide behind.

Even I figured out who that comment was from.

Why are these Northern ladies doubting my boy George.

Damn Yankees. You all better be careful -- if you show your faces in Virginia, I just might have to knock your wooden teeth out.

Now I have to go dance a minuet.

And by the way, my boy is right.


Big gooey chunks.
