1) roger clemens started his "comeback" in a minor league game yesterday. i just wanted to point out how farcical i think it is to consider this a comeback. when jordan took two years off to play minor league baseball, now that was a comeback. martina hingis playing again after not playing for two years, again a comeback. roger clemens missing the first two months of the season because he wanted to skip training camp...that's not a comeback.
2) jason grimsley got busted by the feds for human growth hormone. these steroid stories all have a tomkat/brangelina overkill to it. but if there's one thing that we probably know for sure now, is that people who we suspected of doing steroids but never got officially caught (giambi, bonds, lance armstrong) probably did human growth hormone.
3) robert lapchick released his annual minority hiring report card for sports and as usual, the NBA has lots of african-americans in front office and coaching spots, while the other sports do not. as usual, people write one story about it and then forget it. what someone needs to do is to do an analysis of the findings across time to see how things have progressed since the first time they did it. i suspect that i will be the one to do it once i get out of grad school.
