Scratch That, Clemens Not Going To Disney World

Wednesday, February 20, 2008


There was a whole mess of stories following the Mitchell Report regarding Roger Clemens and ESPN's trip to Orlando at the end of February. The two most prominent were the Network saying they were pulling his commercial for ESPN the Weekend (which I don't think they ever did) and then two weeks ago both parties decided the trip was still on.

Well now Clemens is backing out of the event and has issued a statement regarding the decision....

“I had been looking forward to ESPN The Weekend. Given some strong feelings in some circles today, I believe my current participation could be a distraction,” Clemens stated. “The event should be an occasion for fun by all and I want that to be the case for everyone involved. So I will not be coming at this point in time but I look forward to participating in some future event.”
According to the Orlando Sentinel that leaves the likes of Donovan McNabb, Dwight Howard, Brandon Jacobs, Amani Toomer, Cal Ripken, Martina Navratilova, and ESPN's Jay Crawford, Peter Gammons, Mike Golic and Jemele Hill.

Who needs him?!

Ronald McDonald and Mickey Mouse on ESPN in the same week. There is a hidden message in there somewhere.

There are more brain cells running around trying to think inside Goofy's empty head than Jay Crawford's.

Tomorrow on SportsCenter, Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, and Andy Petitte respond to the news that Roger Clemens won't be going to Walt Disney World.

If it happens tomorrow, please remember that I meant this as a joke.
