Clemens, Pettitte & Nova: They're All Connected

In 2001, while Roger Clemens was a Yankee, he set a franchise record of 16 straight winning decisions. Several years later he and his then good friend Andy Pettitte were accused of using performance-enhancing drugs. Clemens denied it. Pettitte did not and was accused of "mis-remembering" by Clemens.

This morning Pettitte will likely conclude his testimony against Clemens at the latter's perjury trial in Washington, DC and, later, this evening at the Stadium, Ivan Nova will try to tie Clemens' 16-game winning streak.

My disdain for Roger Clemens grows as he continues to deny taking PEDs, and I know I am not alone when I say I love Andy Pettitte for coming clean, so to speak. So it's not surprising that I want Pettitte to take Clemens down in court today. It will make me very happy. I'll be even happier if Nova wins his next two decisions, knocking The Rocket off his boosters.

You tell 'em, Andy and, knock 'em dead, Super Nova!

Update, 2:52PM: Well, World Series champion Andy Pettitte didn't show up at court today. Country Bumpkin Andrew Eugene did. No words...
