Nobody has asked my opinion but…

Does anyone really believe that Roger Clemens did not use some form of performance-enhancing drugs during his baseball career? Yes a jury acquitted him on all charges in his federal case Monday finally ending a 5-year investigation.

But I’m one who believes that was more about sending a message that the Federal Government should stay out of cases involving steroids….how many millions of tax payer dollars do we have to waste on this? What will be interesting to see is what happens next year when Clemens appears on the Hall of Fame ballot for the first time.

“R.A. Dickiculous”

R.A. Dickey should change his name to R.A. Dickiculous. The 37-year old Mets pitcher is putting together a streak that is historic which is saying a lot considering how long baseball has been played. Dickey became the first major league pitcher in 24 years and only the 11th in history to throw back-to-back 1-hitters last night when he blanked the Orioles 5-0. The 37-year old knuckleballer struck out a career-high 13 in becoming baseball’s first 11-game winner and he has not allowed an earned run in nearly 43 innings.

The season-ending episodes of “Nurse Jackie” and “The Big C” left you with more questions than answers which is not unusual for the two 30-minute Showtime Sunday night programs. Both are among my favorite shows on television and “Nurse Jackie” starring Edie Falco will be back for a fifth season next year and I certainly hope “The Big C”, a cancer dramedy with Laura Linney returns for a fourth year.

Having a big name in a movie is no longer a guarantee of success. Tom Cruise and Adam Sandler were supposed to be the star power to make new releases successful last weekend but both “Rock of Ages” and “That’s My Boy” failed to live up to expectations at the box office.

The recent developments involving the cast of “Jersey Shore” are further proof that the show may be less about reality and more about hype.
