He told little white lies ... and he took little blue pills.In addition to its intended uses, it's apparently used as an athletic endurance enhancer of some kind. Personally, I couldn't imagine using it like that. Good lookin' women often get good seats near the field. The camera is on the pitcher all game. You think walking up to the chalk board in junior high was embarrassing? How about on the mound in Yankee Stadium?
Roger Clemens, whose claims he never took steroids are under federal investigation,
has apparently discovered the benefits of another performance-enhancing drug sweeping the sports world - Viagra.
Clemens stashed the clearly marked, diamond-shaped pills in a GNC vitamin bottle in his locker at Yankee Stadium, according to a source familiar with the clubhouse, perhaps keeping the drug undercover to avoid the inevitable wisecracks about all the girlfriends he needed to please.
Clemens wasn't alone. The pitcher, who is believed to have scored the drug from a teammate, joined the burgeoning number of athletes who have turned Vitamin V and its over-the-counter substitutes into one of the hottest drugs in locker rooms.
Is this newsworthy? Eh, if I'm the editor I don't know that I run it. But let us at least recall that this story doesn't exist if Clemens doesn't file that lawsuit.
