The House Oversight Committee has invited Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte and Brian McNamee, the former Yankees' trainer who claims to have injected Clemens with steroids and HGH, to appear on January 16 to testify on the Congressional investigation of the Mitchell Report.
"Roger is willing to answer questions, including those posed to him while under oath," said Clemens' lawyer, Rusty Hardin. "We hope to determine shortly if schedules and other commitments can accommodate the committee on that date."
Translation: Roger will be available on February 29 from 6:00 to 6:03 PM. When you have been prosecuted as many times as I have, you become an expert at deciphering legalese. Although that was some expert lawyer mumbo-jumbo, especially for a guy named Rusty. Anyway, the committee has also called Chuck Knoblauch and with good reason. Even Keith Olberman's mother knows that he definitely had some extra juice on his throws to first base at the end of his career. -KD
