Roger Clemens and his former personal trainer Brian McNamee spend almost five hours testifying before the U.S. House oversight committee. Both Clemens and McNamee contradict themselves during the course of testimony, providing plenty of fodder for those who criticize the latter as a drug dealer and the former as a user of steroids. Clemens’ denials of Human Growth Hormone use look flimsier when teammate Andy Pettitte reveals that Clemens had admitted such usage to him. Pettitte said that he tried human growth hormones during the 2004 season when he injured his elbow and that Clemens’ wife admitted to using human growth hormones while preparing for a swimsuit layout in Sports Illustrated. Although no definitive conclusions are reached, Republicans appear to believe the seven-time Cy Young Award winner while Democrats seem to favor his chief accuser’s account of events.
