Yesterday the New York Daily News revealed that former MLB ace Roger Clemens had a ten-year affair with country star Mindy McCready that began when she was 15 and he was 28, married, and the father of two.  The Daily News didn't specify when the relationship turned sexual, but Clemens — having lied about, oh, everything else in his life — issued the standard "we were just friends" denial yesterday.  Because 28-year-old married guys always have platonic friendships with high school girls.

Today, McCready joined the growing list of people to note that Clemens's pants are, indeed, on fire.

McCready confirmed a long-term affair with embattled pitcher Roger Clemens. "I cannot refute anything in the story," a tearful but resolute McCready told the Daily News […]

"Yes, I have known Roger Clemens for a long time [in the Biblical sense, heh heh -Ed.]," McCready said, reading from a prepared statement. "He's a kind and caring man. He's also a legendary athlete. The central topic in the debate, however, regards his professional life, not his personal life… From my point of view, that is where the focus should remain."

She then added, "And be sure to buy watch my new reality show, Mending Mindy, which ironically just began filming.  Who would have thought that this would come to light just as I was trying to get more publicity and material for my show?  What a crazy coincidence.  Anyhoo, I better get back to my drugs.  I mean laundry.  I'm doing a load of laundry."
