McCready Confirms that Clemens is a Liar as well as a Cheater. This Will Impact the Rocket’s Lawsuit

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on April 30, 2008

In a statement Monday, Clemens’ lawyer Rusty Hardin confirmed McCready was a longtime friend of Clemens and his family, but said the relationship was not sexual.

“At no time did Roger engage in any kind of inappropriate or improper relationship with her,” he said.

However McCready is singing another tune that is completely different. Albeit probably off key and out of tune.

Hiding behind tightly drawn blinds at her Nashville trailer Monday Mindy McCready confirmed a long-term affair with embattled pitcher Roger Clemens.

“I cannot refute anything in the story,” a tearful but resolute McCready said

“Yes, I have known Roger Clemens for a long time,” McCready said, reading from a prepared statement. “He’s a kind and caring man. He’s also a legendary athlete. The central topic in the debate, however, regards his professional life, not his personal life.

“There are legal matters working their way through the system that have nothing to do with me. From my point of view, that is where the focus should remain.”

The Rocket filed a defamation suit against McNamee on Jan. 6. McNamee’s lawyer Richard Emery said revelations of the affair would have a big impact on that case because they influence Clemens’ claim that his reputation was damaged.

“If the case heads to trial and is not dismissed, as we feel it should be, we will be calling [McCready] as a witness,” Emery said.

“The point is whether he was damaged by the allegations that he used steroids – he claims he was hurt. But if there are other women – and there’s not just one case, but many – and he holds himself out as a family man and an American paradigm, it’s relevant.

“None of this would have been revealed but for his lawsuit and sanctimonious testimony before Congress.”

Nice use of the word sanctimonious there Emery.

Sources state in published reports that McCready also received hefty checks courtesy of Clemens – some in the amount of $25,000 – that were channeled to the singer through an intermediary.

Such an arrangement raises questions as to why Clemens would go through a third party to give money to McCready if she and the Rocket were “just friends”.

“It’s suspicious conduct, and it’s something that we will question Clemens about in a deposition,” McNamee lawyer Earl Ward said. “Every avenue will be explored at the deposition [in Clemens’ defamation suit].”

McCready did her part to put some positive light on Clemens and his legal morass.

“I have no doubt that Roger has excellent legal representation and he will emerge from this a strong person and a revered athlete,” she said. “I wish him and his family the best.”

Details of the relationship could also emerge in several media projects that McCready is involved in, including a documentary film, which is to begin filming soon, a new album and a reality show.

Honestly this woman is train wreck. Clemens is blame for some of that but not all. However if anything this should help her. All of a sudden she’s “interesting”.

Unfortunately for Chris Hansen & Dateline NBC the statute of limitations for charging Clemens with statutory rape would have run out.

Blake Mitchell Invited to the Saints Mini-Camp. What’s the Story?

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on April 30, 2008

Former USC quarterback Blake Mitchell is going to get a shot to make an NFL team or so his family is claiming.

According to Mitchell’s family the quarterback has been invited to the New Orleans Saints mini-camp. He has not signed any contract.

Recruited by ex-USC coach Lou Holtz, Mitchell spent five years at USC. His most productive season was in 2005, when he passed for 2,370 yards and threw 17 touchdowns.

Now the real story is why are the Saints inviting such a mediocre quarterback? Surely it can’t related to anything about football. Certainly not with Drew Brees as the starter & Mark Brunell just signed to be the primary backup in March of this year.

The Saints might want to show Brees why he should count his blessings hence enters Blake Mitchell. I mean just when you’re getting down on yourself try and think what it must be like to be Mitchell, trust me you’ll feel instantly better.

Here are some scenarios that will likely happen at the mini-camp.

Scenario #1

Blake: Hi I’m Blake Mitchell reporting for camp.

Register: Mitchell…Michell I can’t seem to find you…oh wait here you are. You’ll find the broom, dustpan, mop & bucket in fourth door on the right. Just set your things down here and quickly clean the 2nd floor bathroom Reggie Bush went to Taco Bell again last night.

Blake: Wait…I thought I was invited to compete for a start

Register: Son I thought my wife would finally start swallowing after we got married…20 years later she’s still a spitter. Now go on and clean Reggie Bushs’ crap up or you forfeit your Greyhound ticket home.

Scenario #2

Blake: Hi Mr. Brees it’s sure great to meet you, I’m reporting to camp.

Drew Brees: Oh yeah I heard about you. Grab your toothbrush and clean my rims you loser.

Blake: I thought I was here to compete.

Drew Brees: You are we only have one janitor position available. You’re competing for that spot against the entire class of un-draftees Alabama produced.

I just hope they call his father “Nugget” before they cut him, since daddy Mitchell always cries because he isn’t the first to know.

I see Blake trying out (and failing) for the TV show “So You Think You Can Dance?”

Hey Roger it’s Called Child Molestation

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on April 29, 2008

Roger Clemens’ squeaky clean baseball image went down in flames earlier this year with the Mitchell Report Hearings, now his family life is doing the same. (As if throwing his wife under the bus in the steroid allegations wasn’t enough)

The Daily News is reporting Roger Clemens carried on a decade-long affair with country star Mindy McCready, a romance that began when McCready was a 15-year-old aspiring singer performing in a karaoke bar and Clemens was a 28-year-old Red Sox ace and married father of two.

To bad Dateline NBC wasn’t around then. Let’s review. Clemens 28, McCready 15. I believe that’s called child molestation in all 50 states, or at the very least statutory rape. Wow……talk about a fall from grace.

Rusty Hardin, the lead council for Clemens confirmed a long-term relationship but denied that it was of a sexual nature. Rrrriiiiggghhhtttttttt they don’t call him Rocket for nothing.

“He flatly denies having had any kind of an inappropriate relationship with her,” Hardin said. “He’s considered her a close family friend. … He has never had a sexual relationship with her.”

Is this the same “no sexual relations with this woman” that President Clinton had. I mean after all, if the President of a Nation can justify sex, and what is not sex in the court of law…surely Roger can get away with it as well.

Hardin said the Rocket’s wife, Debbie, knew McCready and that the singer had traveled on his plane.

Of course this could damage his lawsuit against McNamee.

“The issue in Roger’s suit against McNamee is Roger’s reputation and how it has been damaged,” said Richard Emery, one of McNamee’s lawyers who is handling the defamation suit. “If it’s proved that he’s a philanderer, his reputation is already damaged. When you sue for defamation, you put your whole reputation in the community at issue. Anything is fair game, including his claim of sanctimonious purity. We would cross-examine him and other witnesses who might impact on his alleged behavior. We would probably subpoena her and witnesses who knew [of the relationship]. He’s a ‘family man’ – he implies that. It’s about what his damages are. All is fair game.”

This has nothing to do with his steroid use, but has everything to do with Roger’s integrity. If proven true, this will take all Roger’s credibility away. Roger lies about affair = Roger lies about steroid use. He should just come clean.

Clemens was with his Red Sox teammates in a Fort Myers, Fla., bar when then-teenager McCready caught his eye. After Clemens threw a shirt with his and several teammates’ signatures onstage, an introduction was made.

“It was love at first sight, no doubt about it,” said a source with intimate knowledge of the relationship.

Ummm, I think it’s time to break out the “misremember” card again, Roger.

According to the source, McCready did not learn that Clemens was married to Debbie Clemens until McCready attended a baseball game with her two younger brothers and read Clemens’ bio in the program. The source says that McCready was too young to be angered by the news that Clemens was taken.

And why be mad? She was 15…fucking 15! She wouldn’t have the understanding or the cognitive thinking to be mad.

McCready was briefly engaged to actor Dean Cain and later was in an abusive relationship with Billy McKnight – the father of her only child, Zander. But she also continued to see the “Rocket” take off.

Her personal life, however, soon played out like a bad country song which there are plenty of. There was a 2004 arrest for prescription fraud. A near-overdose while pregnant. A guilty plea by McKnight for assaulting McCready. And her stint in a Tennessee jail last year after violating probation, for allegedly hitting her mother in Florida.

How appropriate that she was arrested for Prescription fraud in 2004….. Wonder what the specifics were, or maybe Clemens got her addicted to prescription drugs. I can see it now, Roger shooting up and McCready begging him to let her try it. Sort of like that scene from Ray.

Even during her troubles, the sources say Clemens was never far from McCready. Clemens would frequently send bundles of cash in FedEx packages, they say, as she dealt with her legal issues. According to one of the sources, Clemens even reached out to McCready through an intermediary while she was in jail last year, although McCready had cut ties with the Rocket as far back as 2006.

According to reports when McCready and Clemens were together, there was barely any friction between them. The two were known to take lavish trips to Las Vegas and New York. One time, McCready attended a Yankees game at the Stadium and jokingly donned a catcher’s mask near the home dugout. During another Big Apple excursion, the two holed up in the trendy SoHo Grand and later partied with Monica Lewinsky and Michael Jordan. McCready, according to a source, even bummed a cigar off His Airness to give to Clemens. And the topper there were personal love missives to Clemens hidden in McCready’s album liner notes. Now go out there and buy some CD’s! 😉

Let me get this straight. SoHo, Vegas, Bill Clinton’s personal cum stain and Debbie Clemens was ok with this?!?!?!

The relationship with McCready paints a very different picture of Clemens than the one drawn by Jose Canseco in his book “Juiced,” where he went out of his way to say that Clemens was one of very few professional ballplayers who was faithful to his wife. Of course Clemens didn’t take steroids either…

And it smacks of a different Clemens than the one who spoke passionately of his family in his opening remarks to Congress Feb. 13. Debbie Clemens was seated behind her husband at the hearing.

“Anyone who has spent time around me knows that my family is and has always been my top priority,” a portion of the statement read. “My wife, Debbie, and my sons – Koby, Kory, Kacy and Kody – mean more to me than anything in the world. Having said that, baseball has definitely provided me with significant opportunities off the field.”

Just one more example of why Clemens is in trouble. People with power and money always seem to think they are above reproach. Welcome to the peasant’s world, Mr. Clemens. Clemens, you should have just admitted you did steroids. This could have all be over with.

This is McCready today….Yeah Roger hit that!

How the SEC Faired in the NFL Draft

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on April 29, 2008

Alabama sent 10 but 0 were drafted. Draft rating; FAILURE

Arkansas sent 11, six those players were drafted, 2 of the six in the 1st round.

Auburn sent 11, five of those players were drafted starting in the second round.

Florida sent 7, two of those players were drafted, 1 of the two in the first round.

Georgia sent 13, four of those players were drafted starting in the fifth round.

Kentucky sent 7, four of those players were drafted starting in the fourth round.

LSU sent 11, seven of those players were drafted including the fifth overall pick.

Ole Miss sent 5, zero were taken.

Mississippi State sent 3, zero were taken.

South Carolina sent 4, one of those players were drafted.

Tennessee sent 8, three of those players were drafted including the tenth pick overall.

Vanderbilt sent 8, three of those players were drafted. 1 in the first round.

Side note. Tennessee should be the new linebacker U. Since 1999, Tennessee has had more linebackers selected in the NFL draft than any of the 10 schools with the most players picked since 1996. Penn State, meanwhile, has produced five. Only Miami (4), Ohio State (3) and Florida State (2) have produced more first-rounders over the same period. On Saturday Jerod Mayo became the 11th Tennessee linebacker selected since 1999.

This is how Bama did in the draft.

Not A Good Time For Pro Sports in Tennessee

Posted by Joel Jackson on April 28, 2008

So how did ol’ Bud Adams and the Titans do in this year’s draft??? Do the letters WTF mean anything???

One glaring need for QB Vince Young and the Titans offense was a wide receiver. Everyone from Mel “Royal Crown” Kiper to Helen Keller could see that the Titans needed a receiver. So with the #24 pick in the 1st round, and every receiver still available, the Titans draft RB Chris Johnson from East Carolina. That’s right, a running back from that football factory of East Carolina is who GM Mike Reinfeldt chose. Typical. But don’t worry, Tennessee did draft a wideout, Lavelle Hawkins from Cal. Yes they could have had DeSean Jackson from Cal, but apparently this group of so-called NFL “personnel experts” decided not to. Plus, the reviews on all of their draft picks haven’t been stellar. This guy wasn’t even the dreaded “best player available”. Plus the Titans have decided to “Go Green”. No, they are not gonna add barf bags to the seats and recycle the puke from whenever the offense stalls again. They are putting grass in one of the parking lots in LP Field. At least my uncle, a season ticket holder, will be able to drink his beer and eat his ribs in the shade with the rest of his friends instead of pissing on the concrete.

But at least the Titans made the playoffs last year, something the Memphis Grizzlies won’t do for at least another 4 years, if then. They completed yet another year in the toilet. The offense wasn’t bad, but the defense was like Michael Vick using Chicken George as his lawyer. Probably, just like last year, the Grizzlies will get a lottery pick that they will do nothing with and trade away another player in-season (see Mike Miller) for a complete set of “Charles in Charge” on DVD, just so the player can be treated to Willie Aames’ perm daily.

On a lighter note, if you really want to call it that, I got a survey from the Memphis Grizzlies wanting to know how I feel about the sponsors of the team??? How do I feel??? I feel sorry for the sponsors of this poor excuse of a professional franchise. You have a coaching staff and front office that have no clue how to get out of its own way. If I were a ticket salesman for this team, I would quit my job than try to lie to potential season ticket holders about the “game day experience” of seeing the Memphis Grizzlies. Keep in mind, for some reason, I am still one of the 287 fans of this pathetic franchise. What is gonna be the next great Grizzlies game day promotion, redneck tractor pull???

***Note: I did not include the Nashville Predators in this post. The only time hockey matters is when a fight breaks out. Maybe is someone made the rink into an octagon (UFC style) it would be more interesting…

EA Sports Grows Tired of Cursing the Younger Players

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on April 28, 2008

Everyone knows about the “curse” that is associated with those unlucky souls who grace the cover of EA Sports Madden NFL games. The list is countless. Well…let me rephrase that. The list is countless if your name is Jerrell Powe…since the list only goes up to twenty.

August 12 marks the 20th anniversary of the highly successful video gamee. EA Sports, seemed to have grown tired of cursing the younger players has decided to prey on the old instead. Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre. Having announced his retirement in early March, Favre becomes the first non-active player to appear on the game’s cover.

This is going to destroy Farve’s retirement plans. The Curse will live…

Favre’s legacy is cemented as one of the most beloved players of his generation and has announced a retirement only to back out more than anyone in NFL history. The future Hall of Famer is the league’s only three-time Most Valuable Player and he holds the NFL record for most consecutive starts for quarterbacks. He completed his 17-year career as the NFL’s all-time leader in touchdowns, completions, attempts, yards, and wins.

WOW! I guess John Madden really does have the world’s biggest MAN CRUSH on Brett Fav-re. I swear, he would adopt Brett if he could or let Brett adopt him. In all honesty, though, I think the BEST tribute for the 20th Madden would have been the Manning Brothers. Not even in uniform, just standing there with their Super Bowl rings on…

If Farve decides to come back to fill in for an “injured” Rodgers, he will truly be cursed. Stay retired. (See: Jordan)

Bottom line is Chuck Norris should be on the bloody cover.

Soulja Boy feels disrespected by LeBron James, but he feels special because LeBron knows he’s alive

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on April 25, 2008

DeAndre Way is not much of a basketball fan, and he surprisingly has never seen LeBron James play. So when Way saw that James mentioned his stage name, “Soulja Boy,” in a recent article, Way was caught way off guard.

“Someone from Interscope Records called me and sent me the quote,” Way said. “I looked and didn’t really think much about it. LeBron said something like he was Jay-Z and DeShawn [Stevenson] is Soulja Boy. I took that as [disrespectful].”

The comment was:

“With DeShawn Stevenson, it’s kind of funny. It’s almost like Jay-Z [responding to a negative comment] made by Soulja Boy. It doesn’t make sense to respond.”

All James attempted to do was respond to the slight given to him by Wizards guard Stevenson.

Jay-Z is one of the top hip-hop artists, while Soulja Boy — though wildly popular — is considered by some reviewers as a one-hit wonder. But the catchy tune “Crank That” remains a popular hit.

The single was initially self-published on the Internet, and it became a No. 1 hit for seven non-consecutive weeks starting in September 2007.

The “Soulja Boy Dance” is performed in night clubs, socials and in sports arenas across the country. Even James was caught on camera doing the “Soulja Boy Dance” during a game this season.

“When I first came out, there [were] a lot of people that did my dance from football players to basketball players to soccer players,” said Way, 17. “So this makes me feel like a very important individual. I’m in the middle of this conversation in the playoffs, and that makes me feel good. I knew my name was going to come up in sports, because of the song, but I never thought it would come up in a conversation like that.”

But it has.

In fact, Stevenson responded to James’ comments by inviting Way to an upcoming playoff game. Stevenson promised to have Way at courtside in a Wizards jersey. Way said he will accept the invitation. He is expected to attend either Game 3 or Game 4 in Washington.

“I’m all for it,” Way said. “He invited me out, and I don’t have a problem coming . . . I’m [cheering] for whoever backs me. I can’t go for whoever’s going against me.”

Which is why I can’t understand the reasoning of him wearing a Cavs jersey in the picture above.

Way said he has never seen James play because he’s not much of a basketball fan. Working on new music takes up most of his time. Way, who grew up in Atlanta, is more of a football fan. Since the Atlanta Hawks are in the playoffs and since he has been invited to the playoff series between the Cavs and the Wizards, basketball will become more of a priority.

Although Way even admitted he doesn’t have much of basketball talent, he would not oppose a 2-on-2 basketball game for charity between himself and Stevenson against James and Jay-Z.

“Oh man, let’s do it,” Way said. “I can’t hoop, but we all have money, and I can quickly get some training.”

Oh please it’s not that simple.

Rich Rodriguez Wanted the Hell Out of There

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on April 25, 2008

The never ending saga of Rich “Dirty Sanchez” Rodriguez verses WVU has taken yet another twist.

According to documents obtained by West Virginia University’s attorneys, the anti-hero coach contacted Michigan before school officials approached him in December.

Contact Michigan in hopes of landing job so I can escape this hell

A representative of Rodriguez’s contacted Michigan on Dec. 11, WVU attorney Jeffrey Wakefield said on Wednesday. The contact occurred three days before Rodriguez met with U-M president Mary Sue Coleman and athletic director Bill Martin in Toledo to interview for the position.

Michigan athletic director Bill Martin declined to comment through a U-M spokesman.

Depositions are continuing in the case, Wakefield confirmed. West Virginia athletic director Ed Pastilong was deposed last Friday and Rodriguez was deposed on Monday. Though no further depositions have been scheduled, Wakefield said they would like to speak with Rodriguez’s wife, Rita.

Wakefield must want a lap dance “for old times sake”.
