Roger Clemens said the people who know him will believe him, but the others have already made up their mind.
Clemens gave a lot of denials to Mike Wallace tonight on “60 Minutes,’’ but really didn’t have a story of his own. Congress will have a lot of interesting follow-up questions.
Among them: Why would Brian McNamee tell the truth about Andy Pettitte but lie about Clemens? Clemens gave a tepid response of not knowing what Pettitte was doing, but Wallace never pushed it. Wallace didn’t push a lot of things. Instead of asking Clemens to swear he didn’t take steroids, he should have made him “pinky swear.’’
What I believe most about what Clemens said tonight was that he’s already been convicted in the court of public opinion. If anything, his hole is deeper. I believe McNamee and don’t think Clemens said anything to change my mind.
How about you?
