I admit, in my personality-disordered, addled state, I am never happier than when Roger Clemens is being punched in the gut. To wit:
HOUSTON -- The Roger Clemens Institute for Sports Medicine, which opened in January 2007, will no longer carry the embattled pitching great's name.
The Memorial Hermann Hospital Health Care System announced Saturday that Clemens' name will be removed, effective Thursday, as the fallout from the Mitchell report continues to haunt the winner of 354 major league games and seven Cy Young awards.
The facility will be renamed the Memorial Hermann Sports Medicine Institute.
In its statement, the hospital said the decision to take off Clemens' name was made "to better reflect its commitment to all sports and athletes" and that "the move reflects the desire to promote the broad range of sports medicine services and programs offered by Memorial Hermann."
In November, the New York Daily News reported that Clemens has been asked to end his involvement with a charity golf tournament in Houston that he has hosted for four years.
First Mangini, now this...will the schadenfreude ever end? I sure hope not!
Happy New Year, ya bastahds.
