Now the FBI is opening an investigation into whether Roger Clemens lied under oath before Congress a few weeks ago when he testified that he never took steroids.
This whole episode is an embarrassment. We are a country bogged down in a zillion dollar war, a good portion of our citizens have no health insurance, and the economy is in the tank. The solution: waste Congress's time and our taxpayer money by holding Congressional hearings about whether there is a steroid problem in baseball. Then start another investigation into whether a washed up pitcher lied about taking roids.
A few observations:
1. Remember when the Floyd Landis scandal broke and American mainstream media sports news people summarily dismissed cycling as a fraudulent sport while continuing to treat the Big 3 "American" sports as clean and legitimate? Now that was funny.
2. Any politician, from either party, who seriously takes part in these hearings should be ashamed of themselves.
3. Any politician who claims that he/she stands for "limited government" but supports these government hearings on steroid use in baseball (a non-governmental organization, last time I checked) should be ashamed of themselves.
4. Just ride your bike and screw all of these dirty athletes.
