Clemens: Talk about steroids, please!

Yesterday I was sitting in California Pizza Kitchen, waiting for my lunch and reading the LA Times sports section (I’m in Los Angeles for a few days) when I came across this AP story that says Roger Clemens may have some troubles that aren’t baseball or steroid related:

Country singer Mindy McCready confirmed a long-term affair with retired pitcher Roger Clemens, who has been embroiled in a federal steroids probe, according to the New York Daily News.

"I cannot refute anything in the story," a tearful but resolute McCready told the News.

Through his lawyer Clemens denied his relationship with McCready when she was a 15-year-old aspiring country singer was sexual, but what I found interesting, and amusing, was part of the denial statement his lawyer released (emphasis mine):
"Mindy McCready is a longtime family friend of Roger Clemens and the Clemens family," Hardin said in a statement Monday. "At no time did Roger engage in any kind of inappropriate or improper relationship with her. It is unfortunate that the Daily News has chosen to report anonymous allegations that are completely unfounded, have no basis in fact, and have nothing to do with Roger's baseball career or the issue of steroid use in baseball."

Shorter Roger Clemens: Who wants to talk about me and steroids? Anyone? Anyone!
