Roger Clemens

As everyone must know by now Roger Clemens won his 300th game yesterday, as well as getting his 4,000th strike-out. I like him because he pitches as if every pitch matters, he is capable of getting angry at himself, hates failure, and the best in him may be diligence. Great accomplishment.

Congratulations to Roger Clemens. However, I for one, do not find him to be a particularly worthy role model. Any player who expresses no regret at injuring opposing players - as he has done after beaning hitters - or throws a piece of a broken bat in rage at an opponent, exhibits such poor sportsmanship so as to remove him from the role model category. It’s similar to the modern NBA ethic of NEVER helping an opponent up from the floor. Such an unsportsman-like attitude has helped make the NBA virtually unwatchable to this writer. I may be old fashioned, but I don’t believe it belongs in sports at any level.
