If it happens in D.C., then it isn’t a sporting event (yes, this applies to you as well, Nationals). The only affect these Roger Clemens hearings will have on the sporting world is whether or not he ends up in the Hall of Fame. And does Congress decide that? No. The affect will be indirect at best.
Here’s a better solution to this little Clemens debacle – let’s have all of the baseball hall of fame voters get together and have a purely baseball hearing pertaining to Clemens’s level of guilt. These are the guys whose opinions really count when it comes to the sporting world. Then, they can make their own educated decision over the next five years, when Roger’s time on the ballot comes up.
