Fat Billy's Affair With A 15-Year-Old

Daily News:
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, several sources have told the Daily News. ...

Contacted by the Daily News Sunday through his lawyer Rusty Hardin, Clemens confirmed a long-term relationship but denied that it was of a sexual nature. ... Hardin said the Rocket's wife, Debbie, knew McCready and that the singer had traveled on his plane. ...

[Brian] McNamee, who worked with and traveled with Clemens extensively over the last decade, has confirmed that he saw Clemens and McCready together on many occasions, including in Clemens' room at his apartment in the former SkyDome ...

Clemens would frequently send bundles of cash in FedEx packages ... 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. ... There were personal love missives to Clemens hidden in McCready's album liner notes. ...
As Clemens acted blamless, arrogant and untouchable and threw everyone he knew -- including his mother and wife -- under the bus, we knew there would be more dirt coming out ... but man oh man!!!

from tmz: "McCready [...] has struggled in recent years, beginning with a 2004 conviction for fraudulently obtaining prescription painkillers. She was on probation for that offense when she was charged with driving under the influence in 2005."

They're not for me, they're for my friend. No, really!

Anyone have her albums to check the liner notes?

What a day, huh? First, the "seminude" Hannah Montana pictures thing, then Fat Billy's 10 year pedophile affair? And to top it off, last night during one of Pedroia's ABs, NESN was doing a normal shot of a couple, Rays fans, with a broom behind their seats. The guy is clapping and looks generally happy, and they pan out and the girl is giving him a handjob.

phil said...

Wouldn't that be tantamount to an admission of liking her music?

The Toronto Public Library has three albums, if you want to make a field trip.

Two things I'd never know about if it weren't for this blog. (And still don't care about, or understand why anyone else does, but that's always the case for me.)

But pedophile? Let's not get out of control. Underage yes. Pedophile, no. There's a difference.

Well, yeah. I agree with you. One relationship, one person. Yes, she's underage, but you're right. Pedophile isn't the right word.

phil said...

There's a -phile word for someone who has sexual relationships with post-pubescent minors, but I can't remember what it is, and I'm at work so I'm not about to start googling for it.

L-girl said...

It's that iffy area of age of consent. Definitely fucked up for a 28 year old man, no doubt about that.

When Phil/Phrenile finds the word, we'll all know what to call Clemens.

Like we don't already know that!

phil said...

It's ephebophilia.

ish said...

Definitely fucked up for a 28 year old man, no doubt about that.

Yeah, definitely. Just thinking of the age difference, at that time in their lives. 18 and 31 doesn't seem so bad. Certainly 50 and 37 doesn't seem bad at all. But 15 and 28, that's no good.

L-girl said...

50 and 37 is completely, 100% normal and fine. That's just an age difference between two adults.

In Clemens' case, when you factor in the famous professional athlete factor, the age difference is even worse. What 15 year old girl wouldn't be awed by the attention and the money? I know most (hetero) men find girls that age attractive, but acting on it... different story.

L-girl said...

Phil, that link says it's also called "hebephilia". An exclusive attraction to Jews?

phil said...

Hebe was the Greek goddess of youth, so the etymology has nothing to do with Jews. I'll admit I was tempted to crack a joke about sexual attraction to Youkilis, though.

Whaaaaaa?

Wasn't she married to Dean Cain famed actor of the Lois and Clark show co starring Teri Hatcher as the fetching Lois Lane.......

Handjob's are underrated.......

Ish....we got any you tube footage of this alleged lude action......

redsock said...

ESPN: "Saying "all is fair game," lawyers for Roger Clemens' former personal trainer Brian McNamee say they intend to capitalize on allegations of an extra-marital affair involving Clemens and a country music singer in defending a defamation suit Clemens filed against McNamee."

SoSH:

mabrowndog:
"The Big Show is having a field day with this right now on WEEI, playing Deliverance and After the Lovin' in the background"

ShaneTrot:
"The whole Clemens' web of lies falls down when Debbie turns on him. Please make this happen."

KevinMortonsGhost:
"This is liking waking up and discovering that its Christmas morning!"

Average Reds:
"The fabulousness is just getting started."

redsock said...

You think Roger has ever thought, perhaps late at night, when the house is quiet and he's all alone, that maybe he should have kept his big mouth shut when the Mitchell Report was released?

L-girl said...

I kinda knew that. But as Jew, I felt obligated to make the joke.

I'll admit I was tempted to crack a joke about sexual attraction to Youkilis, though.

Oh geez, at least go for Kapler.

Handjob's are underrated.......

Thanks Casey. We were all wondering.

redsock said...

I'm not actually in Toronto, so I need them to be in a Mississauga branch.

Let me check ...

doo doo doo doo doo ...

Alright!

Ten Thousand Angels (1996)
[At our local branch! But: status is "long overdue" - Boo!]

If I Don't Stay The Night (1997)
[At our local branch -- RIGHT NOW!!!]

I'm Not So Tough (1999)
[Several copies at the central branch -- that's 5 minutes away!]

Mindy McCready (2002)
[Pretty close too.]

....

I guess a good reporter would go check these CDs out, huh?

You know Kif on Futurama? The noise he makes when Zap Brannigan says something objectionable?

How do you spell that noise?

phil said...

In my hypothetical joke, I considered going with Kapler, but he wasn't with the Sox in the mid-1990s either, so it seemed like a wash. And for all I knew, someone might consider him the Greek god of something else besides walks.

Upon further reflection, though, Kapler would've been the better choice, because both he and McCready were born a couple months apart in 1975, so he would've been the same age at the time. Youk would've been about 11 (born in 1979).

Roger Clemens: like humping Kapler.

redsock said...

Are there transcripts online?

How about:

"Huhhhhhhhh...." with [world-weary sigh] after it

phil said...

I'd go with "[Beleaguered sigh.]"

Wikiquote just says "[Kif sighs.]" Pretty much everyone's always sighing on Futurama.

redsock said...

Are there transcripts online?

Duh.

Handjob on NESN

It must have been through the pants. You won't be seeing a dong or anything. I love how she keeps looking around to see if anyone has noticed.

L-girl said...

I wonder if she lost a bet.

Or he won one.....

Buster Olney is reporting the Giants will move Barry Zito to the bullpen. Interesting. I wonder in what role he'll be in the bullpen. Lips role?

Curb Your Enthusiasm reference, in case anyone is wondering.

bahahahahahahahahahaha (handjob video)

ohh NESN.

Is this a transcript of the handjob?

Jere said...

Yanks finally break up the no-hitter, on three singles (two of them infield hits) and a HBP. And now they tie it at 2 on a groundout. World-weary sighhhhh.

Patrick said...

So if a young girl (or boy) gives you the hebe jeebes, you need to check yourself before you pull a 'fat billy'.

Jere said...

And then they take the lead on....well, I'll just let you guess if it was another groundout. What an inning.

IF 1b
IF 1b
1b
HBP
G3
G3

3 runs. Still 2 outs in the 6th.

Jere said...

So the Tribe change pitchers, and the new guy gives up...a run-scoring infield single. All the same inning. This is a classic rally. 4-2 Yanks.

redsock said...

Mindy McCready's mother confirmed today that the country singer has had a long-term relationship with pitcher Roger Clemens, but she said she believes the relationship is strictly platonic.
"They met here (in Fort Myers)," said Gayle Inge of North Fort Myers. "I think it was at a karaoke bar, but I couldn’t say for sure."

ish said...

Platonic... So that's what they call it these days.

csd said...

What will be the next chapter of this saga?

ish said...

Time for ESPN to get their proverbial handjob as Joba Chamberlain comes into the game.

The last ten (little) Indians go down in order, and the chokers win 5-2

Foul balls

That makes zero sense.

You think hot teenage girls want shriveled up old men? What, because they can't get anyone else?

And Clemens wasn't roidy at 28.

Try again.
