So Roger Clemens was juiced. Man, that's disappointing. You see someone like him and you think you're seeing one of the all-time greats, a real hero in the sport, both in terms of intensity and longevity. And he probably would have been even without taking steroids. But that apparently wasn't good enough. Now this undoes all those good years of fantastic pitching and calls everything into doubt. I was never a huge fan of his but more an admirer, but now somehow I feel cheated.

This is turning into a lousy century, isn't it?

In other crappy sports news, they're going to sell off the naming rights to the Rose Coliseum here in Portland. It's owned by Paul Allen, Microsoft billionaire (net worth ~ $20B). Allen will get maybe $10M/yr, and what was once a pleasant, charming name for a stadium will turn into just another monstrosity.
