3,000 Hits, 500 Homers ... 1 Perjury Charge?

Is this tragedy, or comedy? Tragicomedy? Nah, mostly comedy.

Did this guy really think that this would not come back to bite him in the ass eventually? Is this the ultimate example of a ballplayer who thinks that nothing can ever touch him? The guy testifies -- under oath -- that "I have never used steroids. Period." while he knows that he's using.


In the end, his status as a jock probably will protect him and he won't be prosecuted for perjury. Already, the Prez is publicly backing his favorite drug abuser: "'He's a friend,' the president said in a White House roundtable interview with several Texas reporters. 'He's testified in public, and I believe him.'"

Well, at least it's not medical marijuana. That would be wrong.
