What kind of sick mind hatches the idea that Roger Clemens might sign with the Mets, let alone pretends to approve of it?
Guilty. Hope the near-strokes and inner-mouth vomit reported in yesterday's comments section were not fatal and that the second annual Faith and Fear April Fools post was taken in the spirit it was intended.

Clemens? Excuse me? Who the hell wants the Mets to win if that's the Mets? Maybe your entry isn't entirely serious Greg, but I'm a little appalled.
Me too, Jacobs27. The holiday hoax wasn't so much the Mets getting Clemens but the possibility that a meta-Mets fan such as myself could embrace it. I'd like to be holier (or at least Tim Folier) than thou and say, “Me? Clemens? NEVER!” but as much as that would pass a polygraph right now, you stick a guy I can't stomach in a Mets uniform and if he strikes out the side…well, let's just say it's pretty unlikely we'll have to find out where Roger & Me are concerned. But cripes, I did hate Glavine and I root for him now. I hated post-Bonilla I and I rooted for Bonilla II. I hated Coleman and Herr as Cardinals, but when they alit here, I gave them the benefit of the clothes.
Never mind laundry. We root for teams and are sometimes compelled to root for fragments we find objectionable. Yet there do have to be limits.
