McCready Admits Clemens Affair

Mindy McCready, on yesterday's report of her long-term affair with Roger Clemens:
I cannot refute anything in the story.
NYDN:
The News reported that the two met in a Florida karaoke bar when McCready was a 15-year-old aspiring singer and Clemens was a 28-year-old ace for the Red Sox and a married father of two. ... After the teenage McCready met Clemens at a Fort Myers bar called The Hired Hand, she returned with the Rocket to his hotel room, but there was no sex that night ... It wasn't until later, after McCready had moved to Nashville and become a country singing star, that the relationship turned intimate.
And so only one day after Clemens's lawyer Rusty Hardin makes definitive denials of the story, he is shown to be totally full of horseshit.
At no time did Roger engage in any kind of inappropriate or improper relationship with her.
Oops.
Hardin said the Rocket's wife, Debbie, knew McCready ...
Oops. "[S]ources with knowledge of the relationship between the singer and Clemens say McCready has never met Roger's wife ..."
He's considered her a close family friend.
Yet when Clemens sent checks to McCready to help her with her legal issues -- sometimes as much as $25,000 -- they "were channeled to the singer through an intermediary". And isn't that what we all do when we loan money to a "close friend" -- go through a third party.

Oh yeah, Red Sox baseball tonight! Mike Lowell is expected to be back.

At least they're consistent!

FTA:
Judging by the way Josh Beckett sounded yesterday, a day off is overdue.

“When they make the schedule like this, it’s not just that we play 20 in a row, we play (expletive) 8 o’clock getaway games in Oakland (sic), so there’s not enough (complaining) and moaning that goes on to get it changed, I don’t know what the (expletive) we need to do,” said Beckett, who took the loss in the 3-0 defeat to the Rays. “That’s what strings guys out. It’s tough playing 20 in a row anyway, but when you’re playing Sunday night baseball here, Sunday night baseball there, you’re not starting until 8 o’clock, you’re not getting home until 4 or 5 in the morning, go right back out the next day.”


Awesome. Tellin it like it is.

Also, Ken Tremendous of FJM will be appearing on Costas Now tonight. Gotta watch that one when I get home!

Tim...are you saying Josh is complaining about not having enough time to begin inappropriate relationships?

Maybe Clemens is telling the truth when he says their relationship wasn't sexual. After all, performance enhancers do limit one's, shall we say, "stamina".

Beckett is my hero.

That woman has soooo much reason to lie. Her career is shit so she needs the publicity. She leaked the story.

Watching Costas Now right, well, Now.
