— Ace A fifteen year old girl. For God's sake.
I wonder if his story will change from "I didn't do steroids and/or HGH" to "I did so much steroids and HGH I went out of my mind and so I'm not responsible for my actions."
Drugs, including alcohol, are being used as a scapegoat for an awful lot of pathologies lately. Do something wrong, say it was the drugs acting, go to rehab, go on Oprah, the redemption is complete.
What do you do if you're not on drugs or alcohol but just do something awful? What if you are, as Bill Cosby said, just basically an asshole? Where's your reset button then?
I always got the impression that Michael Richards was something of a straight-edge health-nut. Not sure if that's accurate. But it's too bad he wasn't a drunk or drug-user, at least for his career. He could have blamed the N-word tirade on smack or something.

Sorta off topic. I posted this previously elsewhere. I was at the grocery store a few weeks ago and I noticed what appeared to be a hot looking lady with her back to me. As a full blooded male pig I went to investigate further and passed by her to get a look to see if the face matched the body. I turned to look at her and found myself staring into the eyes of Mrs. Clemens. She is one MILF hottie.

Well, what ever you do, don't go on an Imus/Lott/Richards groveling tour.

Roger Clemens, disguised in sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat, snuck into the hotel. When he opened the door to his room, he saw that his girlfriend was packing her suitcase.
"What are you doing?, he asked.
"I'm leaving you,", she replied. "I just found out that you're a pedophile."
"Pedophile, eh? That's a mighty big word for an eight year old."

11 Well hell... What a pig. I gave him every benefit of the doubt, but a man who cheats on his family is a cheater through and through. He's officially off the roster of baseball heroes in our household.
Well I'm pretty cynical, so I always assume that any professional athletes who are out on the road for months have had occasional dalliances. But to have a 10 year affair with an underage girl, well that's fairly low even by baseball player standards.

Ugh. This is just like with the anti-smoking crap.
Successful propaganda erases history. Everyone's forgotten what the world was like, what we thought then, just a handful of years ago.
At the time he did it, banging a fifteen-year-old wasn't considered a "pathology." It was merely gauche, something a sleazy rock star would do.
Remember? You were there. It was real.

When I was 15 I dated a 23 year old for a couple of weeks. I didn't see anything wrong with it at the time because I was young and stupid and thought it made me look cool. He dumped me because I wouldn't put out.
Obviously, there's no way Clemens would have let her hang around him for that long if she wasn't spreading it for him. What a douche.

she wasn't spreading it for him.
Sweet, innocent Joanie. Please tell me you're talking about sandwich making.
Posted by: 3rd_Bird at April 30, 2008 08:01 AM (1rNdj)
Yes exactly, sandwiches. She wouldn't hold the pickle.
Oh and btw, Jack M's tongue could choke a bear.

I thought I was the only one who knew that.

Reminds me of what Heinrich Heine wrote about Mad King Ludwig of Bavaria: "He was usually insane, but had periods of lucidity during which he was merely stupid."

In the case of douchebags who bang underaged girls, I'm thinking a swift punch to the crotch area might flip their internal breaker.

All that's missing is a double wide,a shotgun, meth, and guest shot on Cops.

Roger's a piker. Real athletes bang 'em much younger.
Note that Karl Malone's paramour had their kid when she was 13. Given a 9 month gestation period, odds are pretty good that Karl was screwing a 12 year old.
