And the Roger Clemens saga continues. The Rocket – and won’t that nickname take on a different meaning now – has been linked to country-star-turned-train-wreck Mindy McCready. No big whoop you say…until you find out they met when he was 28 and she was 15!

Good old Rusty Hardin came out with a very Clintonesque rebuttal from the NY Daily News:

“He flatly denies having had any kind of an inappropriate relationship with her,” Hardin said. “He’s considered her a close family friend. … He has never had a sexual relationship with her.”

And check out Rog’s game from back in the day. Big hit with the ladies…girls:

According to sources, Clemens was with his Red Sox teammates in a Fort Myers, Fla., bar when then-teenager McCready caught his eye. After Clemens threw
a shirt with his and several teammates’ signatures onstage, an introduction was made.

“It was love at first sight, no doubt about it,” said a source with intimate knowledge of the relationship.

Young love, it just brings a tear to my eye.
