You know that gesture hockey players make after they trip someone, holding their hands up in the air to profess innocence?
Some Internet equivalent of that needs to go with linking to the tabloid relevalations that Roger Clemens had a "10-year affair" with Mindy McCready (don't act like you didn't constantly channel-surf by CMT back in 1996 hoping to catch the video for Guys Do It All The Time) that allegedly began when she was 15 years old. That much redneck bathos in one package -- disgraced ballplayer, disgraced country singer -- is too much to stomach. As well, it allegedly began when she was 15 years old.
On the plus side, the Deadspinners are having their harmless (so they think) fun, which is enjoyable to read. Also, it's good to find out that you can Google "mindy mccready oxycontin," and be looking recent bikini shots of Avril Lavigne in just a couple of click-throughs.
Nothing could be finer for the members of the trivial generation on a rainy April afternoon.
