Clements indicted. Woo-hoo! Yeah Baby!

I don't follow baseball, nor am I a fan of Roger, but what did the case prove, what good did it contribute to the world? I want to call this a waste of good taxper money.

It is b/c he lied to Congress. I wouldn't call it frivolous.

the fact that a congress got involved in a sports issue in the first place is the real crime

This is more towards my point. What the heck are these lawmakers doing? I read about people shoplifting bras, and shoes from Walmart in the Katy section of the Chronicle. Should Congress call them in and question them about it and turn it into a Federal crime? [/SARCASIM]

PS Tried to rep you, but couldn't!

I think because dragging in sports figures and grilling them is easier than doing the job we sent them to do. They get to be on the news and give the impression they are doing something, just not the something they need to be doing.

It certainly keeps lesser problems like federal deficit, 10% unemployment, and wrestling the chinese for Afghan mineral rights off the front page.

After years of this type of cheating in MLB, I'd have to say this was the guy who put the final nail in the coffin, permanently bumming me out on the entire sport. So for that alone, go ahead and indict him, as much of a waste of time & resources it might be.

It took the strikes of the past couple of decades to kill of all sports for me! I really followed professional football, and basketball, then college, but these days, I see mostly college, but don't even have the desire to make an effort to follow it... if I'm channel surfing, I'll watch... or Thanksgiving, etc. Like the pro's don't get enough millions, they have to stop playing to make more, and don't even get me started on the cost to attend any professional sports game! I do actually go to games, but only when the tickets are free.
