Would Clemens Have the Guts to Do This?

I read this morning (courtesy of a link through Joy of Sox) that the agents of disgraced former future Hall of Famer Roger Clemens have been contacted by the producers of the newest Fox reality show, "The Moment of Truth" to come on their show and be hooked up to a lie detector about his alleged steroid use.

Here is a real chance for Clemens to prove his innocence in front of the world and take a polygraph test. (The show puts contestants on the show and hooks them up to a polygraph and has their friends and relatives in the audience.) The producers have said they will donate $500,000 to the charity of Clemens' choice if he comes on the show.

Here's more on the story, from

Fat chance this will actually happen. Clemens has far too much to lose if he does it. If he fails it, he will be even more disgraced before the entire world and he knows it. The Carpetbagger simply can't take that risk, even for charity. He has that deposition next week with Congress, and then makes an appearance before Congress and the whole world on February 13.

That date will surely be his real Moment of Truth.
