This is getting to be re-God-damn-diculous
With his camp still reeling from the news that Roger Clemens had a long standing affair with Mindy "Mugshot" McCready, the Rocket received another swift kick to the groin this morning with news that he also had an affair with Paulette Dean Daly, former wife of Long John Daly.
I'm not really sure where to begin. On the one hand this comes as no shock. Professional athletes have wandering wieners? You don't say!!! Whether you want to reference the 10,000 women Wilt Chamberlain slept with in his life or the infamous stories of John Salley's bedroom exploits, one thing is clear: professional athletes have poonany served up to them on a silver platter.
On the other hand, Debbie Clemens is by no means bad looking. And I mean they do have four kids......ahhhh who am I kidding with this moral high horse garbage? Very fews wives are hot enough or men strong enough to shrug off the amount of pussy available to athletes like Clemens.
The real moral of the story here is quite simple: don't hire stupid fucking attorneys. It boggles my mind that Brian McNamee was able to hire a better attorney than Roger Clemens. Rusty Hardin, Clemens' attorney, is the dumbest piece of shit this side of Shanghi. This is probably how they discussed the McNamee deposition:
Rog: "Yeah but what about Brian? He knows a lot of pretty bad stuff. The drug use, the ladies, he could really bring me down."
Rus: "Nonsense. Just lie."
Rog: "Isn't perjury a crime? Can't we just pay him off, tell him to lie and go on our marry way? Congress is out to get me anyway since I am the Rocket. They just need to smell blood and things will get Tet 68' up in this bitch."
Rus: "Poppycock. You're the Rocket, he's a trainer. Who are they going to believe? Let's have another whiskey."
After that strategy failed miserably Rus tried to play hardball and discredit McNamee. Great plan, tough to discredit somebody who can't get much lower. Fact of the matter is that McNamee would have probably ended up going through a lot of same stuff that Greg Anderson, former Barry Bonds trainer, went through. He probably faced some sort of minimal jail time. McNamee's attorney plays right back taking a huge shot in the dark with the syringe stunt. Then he let's the coals cool for a couple months and introduces two extramarital affairs in one week. How's your plan looking now Rus?
You learn a lot of shit in law school, some useful, some not so much. One lesson that every aspiring attorney learns very early in the process is that money can mold the legal system. I'd love to sit in an ivory tower and talk about integrity, honesty, etc, but for a very small, uber-wealthy part of our population they means are within their wallet to control their fate.
Rus Hardin should have done everything in his power to shut Brian McNamee up before the Congressional hearing. They say that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, well you can put ex-trainer at the front of the end of that phrase now. It really shouldn't be that difficult for professional athletes: Don't piss off the people that know the most about you because the 15 minutes of fame they get from exposing your dirty laundry is worth a lot.
