King For Several Hundred Days

Rocket Roger takes self-deprecation into uncharted territory:

The seventh-inning stretch was ending when the low, familiar voice of public-address announcer Bob Sheppard told fans at Yankee Stadium to direct their attention to the owner's box behind home plate.

Standing there, microphone in hand, was Roger Clemens to personally announce his return to New York.

[edit]

He agreed to a one-year contract for US$28,000,022 - the last two digits matching his uniform number...

One of the guys over at Highbrid Nation wrote a very interesting post about Roger Clemems and and the "real" reason he has come back to play for the Yankees. Good Stuff.

Don't mean to be pedantic, but there are three spelling/grammatical mistakes in that headline.
