The Con Continues

Roger Clemens yesterday filed a defamation suit against Brian McNamee, citing 15 statements he made in the Mitchell Report. The suit was filed in Harris County, Texas. I would bet we will see a counter suit coming from McNamee's camp soon as well. (I would still bet that neither will ever see a court room too.)

From the Boston Globe:
"Clemens' good reputation has been severely injured," the suit said. "McNamee's false allegations have also caused Clemens to suffer mental anguish, shame, public humiliation and embarrassment."

Good reputation? You mean it hurt his rep for being an obnoxious, money-grubbing, me-first asshole?

This should make the press conference he's holding today even more fascinating. I love the fact that now Clemens can't shut up. The grave he's digging is his own.
