It is ironic that Roger Clemens would have faired better, pr-wise, had he fessed up, whether he had actually used steroids or not. Instead, his devout, insistent, righteous denials have convinced more and more people that not only did he cheat, but he continues to baldly lie about cheating.
And after all the hand-wringing denunciations and moralistic meditations on the state of the national sport, the question of whether or not steroids actually help pitchers remains somewhat murky. There is good reason to believe that steroids don't actually provide much of an advantage. And now I'm bored and I'll leave the topic.
