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.

What I want to know is, what was a fifteen-year old doing in a bar? And more importantly, where were her parents?

She was just insanely hot back in the day. To see her now is a sorry sight. "Rode hard and hung up wet", is the applicable country expression, I believe.

As for Clemens, this is all just karma for the fact that he has been lying continuously about the drugs, constantly throwing others under the bus to save his own pathetic skin.

I'm not sure which Clemens lie is more egregious - his claim not to have done drugs, or his claim that a mentally unstable young blond hottie he met in a bar was just a platonic friend. A five year old can tell better lies than that, for crying out loud.

Oh, and I'm sure that former Predator Drake Berehowsky, who was one of many McCready boyfriends back in the day, is just thrilled to discover now that he was sharing her with Roger Clemens. Nice.
