Roger Clemens has finally made a statement about the Mitchell Report findings, telling all through the magic of YouTube:
In his video vexing, Clemens comes right out and makes an impassioned pre-recorded statement about his alleged steroid use: “Let me be clear, the answer is no. I did not use steroids, human growth hormone, and I have never done so. I did not provide Brian McNamee any drugs to inject into my body.”
Clemens also makes mention of a Los Angeles Times story in 2006 that accused the hurler of doping up: “I faced this last year when the L.A. Times reported that i use steroids. I said it was not true then, and now the the whole world knows it’s not true.”
The Rocket didn’t finish his filmed fuming without making a plug for his appearance on 60 Minutes. Clemens mentioned that the interview with Mike Wallace will be shown after Christmas.
Overall, Roger doesn’t take too kindly to the accusations, saying, “I’m almost numb to some of these suggestions that I would even use steroids.”
About as numb as an ass cheek that’s taken repeated needlings.
