Sometimes in this blog I feel I can’t do a story justice. That if I try to describe it too much or paraphrase a little, I’ll completely ruin it.
So I don’t want to say too much about this story that came out last week, about the man, Michael Keogh of Dublin, who saved Adolf Hitler from certain death in 1919.
It’s an unbelievable tale. Check it out and marvel like I did at how history would’ve been changed if not for one man’s act.
Fate is an amazing thing.
**Not really a big surprise, but still interesting to see Roger Clemens get indicted for perjury on Thursday. I hold Clemens in extremely low regard, and you would too if you read my friend Jeff Pearlman’s excellent book “The Rocket Who Fell to Earth” (full disclosure: I helped edit it. But really, it’s outstanding.)
I absolutely believe Clemens took steroids. I absolutely believe he lied to Congress. He’s been lying his whole life, getting by on talent and charm, and I think he figured Congress would be no different. Hell, I remember those hearings a few years ago and several Congressmen practically fawned over the guy. It was disgusting.
Clemens won’t go to jail, I don’t think. But a conviction would certainly be warranted. He’s an arrogant jerk who continues to think, in his own mind, that this is all a big misunderstanding.
And as a Yankee fan, it always killed me to root for this bum.
