The FBI today officially opened up a perjury investigation of Roger Clemens (and by extension, Brian McNamee).

I would not be surprised if we discover that both lied to Congress. But the fall is going to be a lot harder for the “Rocket.” His orbit is decaying fast folks. And the re-entry is likely to be spectacular, in a falling hero sort of way.

He can’t say he wasn’t warned.

FBI Opens Investigation of Roger Clemens
WASHINGTON (AP) – The FBI has opened an investigation into whether baseball great Roger Clemens lied to Congress when he denied taking steroids or other performance-enhancing drugs.

Law enforcement officials say the inquiry will focus on whether Clemens or his former personal trainer Brian McNamee (MAC-nah-mee) lied when they testified under oath about the use of steroids.

Update: I wonder when they are going to stop calling him “baseball great” and instead call him “juiced-up cheater”…. It’s coming…
