Rocket Finally Launches a Denial
After His Pal Pettitte Offered Up His Weak Admission of Guilt,
Clemens Issues a Statement That Says He's Innocent
"I want to state clearly and without qualification: I did not take steroids, human growth hormone or any other banned substances at any time in my baseball career or, in fact, my entire life. Those substances represent a dangerous and destructive shortcut that no athlete should ever take.
"I am disappointed that my 25 years in public life have apparently not earned me the benefit of the doubt, but I understand that Senator Mitchell's report has raised many serious questions. I plan to publicly answer all of those questions at the appropriate time in the appropriate way. I only ask that in the meantime people not rush to judgment." -- 12.18.07, Clemens issues a too little, too late denial... through his agent of course... and dares to speak out on the dangers of steroids (wink)
