Roger Clemens is already convicted in my court

Roger Clemens plead not guilty today to perjury charges this morning in Washington D.C.  If you ask me, this has been a long time coming.  My 2 cents: if Marion Jones can go to jail, so can Roger Clemens.  I think what bothers me most about Roger Clemens is that he seems smug and unapologetic.  Other athletes that have asked for forgiveness and admitted their mistakes have been able to move on ~ but Roger Clemens has let his bravado speak for him. 

At issue is the testimony Clemens provided Congress in 2008.

Incidentally, Clemens' legal team is lead by Rusty Hardin.  Does that name sound familiar?  If you watch a lot of television on pop culture, like I do, you might recognize Hardin as Pierce Marshall's attorney back when he was feuding with Anna Nicole Smith.  Yeah, I know "stuff"...

If you want details about his case, an ESPN article can be found here.  If you prefer to cut and paste the link into a new window, here you go:  http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=5512659
