1) didn't we already know that clemens was going to retire? in fact, didn't i read this exact same story a few days ago on this exact same website?
2) it seems to me that the real story here was the insensitive remark that roger clemens made about koreans and japanese people and the participation by their fans at the world baseball classic
None of the dry cleaners were open, they were all at the game, Japan and Korea...So we couldn't get any dry cleaning done out there, but I guess the neatest thing is that 50,000 of them were at Anaheim Stadiumi just wonder if clemens had made a remark about how all the mexicans were watching so we couldn't get our lawns mowed, would it be relegated to a sidebar of a non-story as this had been. the thing is, i'm really not concerned about the remark that much. yes, it's definitely offensive, but as fellow asian blogger oliver wang recently wrote about the use of an asian caricature on a new line of adidas shoes, we spend too much time getting upset over negative depictions and not enough time on the social justice issues that are at the real core of racial inequality. but the point is, how is this story just a sidebar? doesn't it warrant it's own story and over-reactionary column by scoop jackson?
anyways, despite possibly being the best pitcher that ever played baseball, his record of general sorriness is well documented. eff roger clemens (unless he decides to come out of retirement to propel the texas rangers to a world series title. in that case, i'd be more than willing to get his dry cleaning done for him).
