Word comes from Capital Hill that Brian McNamee, Roger Clemens's trainer, gave it to Clemens's wife Debbie - HGH that is.
Information emerged that McNamee, Clemens’s former trainer, had stated in a sworn deposition Thursday that he not only injected Clemens with steroids and human-growth hormone but had also injected Clemens’s wife, Debbie, with H.G.H., at Clemens’s request.
That's pretty weird. Is this not the weirdest saga since, well, since Curt Schilling shaved the other day. In this photo shoot, Mrs. Clemens does look strange. Has anyone seen abs like that on a 40 year-old mother of four? Anti-aging clinics use HGH to enhance muscle and decrease fat in men and women.
In the deposition, which was made behind closed doors with lawyers for the committee, McNamee said he injected Debbie Clemens with H.G.H. in late 2002 or early 2003, a person with knowledge of the matter, insisting on anonymity, told reporters. McNamee had previously told federal investigators the same thing, the person said.
From Debbie Clemens website:
“Roger came to me one day and told me that we had been asked to do a photo shoot for Sports Illustrated. I had major anxiety! I was a 39-year-old mother of 4! Once I realized that this WAS going to be a reality, I decided I had to give it everything I had. My mind was set. I am not a risk taker, but have since learned that with great risk, sometimes comes great reward.”
Sounds like Mrs. Clemens appeared intimidated by that kind of 'exposure'. Perhaps there is something to the story. The bosoms seem enhanced too. However, After hours of productive contemplative deliberation, Clemens's lawyer Rusty Hardin commented:
Clemens’s camp reacted angrily to the public disclosure without specifically denying it. “This shows what kind of person we’re dealing with,” Clemens’s lawyer Rusty Hardin said.
The McNamee camp plays this one cool:
McNamee’s other lawyer, Earl Ward, said in a telephone interview Friday evening: “We are not interested in Debbie Clemens or anything associated with her. We are interested in Roger Clemens and his use.”
Emery and Ward said they wanted to turn attention back to what they described as important corroborating evidence for McNamee — used syringes, vials and bloody pads they said were used when McNamee injected Clemens on various occasions in 2001. The materials were given to federal investigators Jan 10, and lawyers for McNamee released photographs to congressional staff members Thursday.
The Times article carries this comment about Clemens's veracity:
As all this was gradually occurring, Towns, the Brooklyn congressman, was speaking in positive terms about Clemens, saying his half-hour personal visit made him a believer in Clemens’s character. But Towns said he did not feel that way about McNamee; he said he found his story of holding onto used syringes and swabs for seven years to be “weird.”
Wonder if Clemens's threw a bat at Congressionman Towns's head?
