Clemens On Mike & Mike This Morning: Phantom Interruptions

I just watched the "Mike & Mike" Roger Clemens interview. Are you kidding me?

What a complete waste of time. He did the interview, I guess, to refute a new book coming out today: American Icon: The Fall of Roger Clemens and the Rise of Steroids in America's Pastime, written by four New York Daily News reporters. He accomplished nothing of the kind. In fact, he lost me when he stopped talking to Mike & Mike for a few seconds to talk to his kids who had interrupted him.

Interrupted him? Aren't Roger Clemens' kids old enough by now to know not to interrupt him while he's doing something that important??? Even if they are not, could he not have done enough to prevent that from happening? After all, Clemens is fighting for his baseball life here. I would think that Debbie and/or whoever else is around to help out would make sure he'd be able to do the interview in peace.

Here's my point: The kids weren't even there. He just wanted us to think they were there so he'd have the opportunity to say to them (and I paraphrase) "I'll take you to school when I'm finished up here." He just wanted to make himself look good. Plain and simple.
