According to today's New York Daily News, the insane amouts of money that is being thown at Roger Clemens hasn't done much to change his self-important methods of jackassery. Clemens got a little mouthy at a Daily News reporter and photographer, claiming "I'm going to take some film" out of the photographer's camera, even though every photographer, oh, IN THE UNIVERSE, has been shooting digitally for the last ten years. But what can you expect from a 45-year-old man with frosted blond tips and the IQ of an english muffin?
Not a great start to the pending love afair between Clemens and the New York Media. I've predicted fellatio via syntax, but I could be wrong. What's gonna happen after he gets schooled for 9 runs in his first innings of work, and then is pulled after the 3rd (2003 ALCS anyone?). What is it with old Yankee pitchers and their anger towards cameramen? Anyone remember The Big Ugly's little incident a few years back? I can totally see Roger throwing a bat at Mike Lupica for speaking ill of his wife's bedazzling business.
