Lessons from the Pitching Mound by Roger Clemens
This is a memoir in the making, don’t you think? Roger Clemens, star pitcher and first ballot Hall of Famer, puts his legacy in jeopardy by possible being on the juice. Sues for defamation against the accuser. Has all his dirty laundry and then some aired for the world to read. There should definitely be a chapter on Why Defamation Suits Are Dangerous.
Hey folks, Roger here. Just wanted to give you a tip. When you file a suit for defamation, you put your entire reputation on the line which means your opponent can dig up any and all sordid information like the fact that you had a 10 year affair with a country music singer whom you met when she was 15 and you were 28, married and with kids. When you are confronted with such as accusation, make sure that you have plausible deniability because no one buys the story that she went up to my hotel room after we met but we didn’t have sex. And I didn’t really have a good explanation as to why I was funneling cash to her in amounts as high as $25,000.00.
Ah, the sweet smell of litigation. It reveals all.
