"Why Did You Lie?"

Roger Clemens held a rather testy press conference with the media in Houston this afternoon, and played a tape of a 17-minute conversation he had with Brian McNamee last Friday night (in which it appears that McNamee did not know it was taped).

It didn't sway me one bit that Clemens was telling the truth about claiming to have never used steroids. The conversation left more questions unanswered than answered, and seemed to bring up some new ones, too.

I found it very curious in the conversation that Clemens did not ask McNamee a simple but very direct question about the whole mess.

"Why did you lie?"

The saga goes on.

I think that the feds will now become involved, I do believe it is a crime to tape a phone call without both parties permission. This is going to be a soap opera.

Apparently it is not a crime to tape someone in either the states of New York and Texas, where the call took place.
