I hope he brought some extra buttons for that jacket.

No shit. Based on that photo alone, I'd say that Roger is officially retired.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

It's his haircut that kills me.

It's cut almost militarily short, presumably to make his head look smaller...   ;D

Right.  Cause nothing says you'r lying like having short hair.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

No point in having it long - you can't hide your lying eyes.
I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, torture of Bud Selig.

Not to mention, you can't hide a redneck (underneath that hippy hair.)

The sign said long haired freaky people need not apply.

And in actual news... Clemens, in fact, did not take the fifth.

I'm planning to attend next week's hearing.  I've lived in the DC area my whole life and never done anything like this.  It might end up being the biggest waste of time imaginable, but I think I owe it to myself to get a glimpse at the inner workings of the Government, and it may as well be over something baseball-related.

The Chron's political reporter blogged up a little on this story, she thought it necessary to report,

"Clemens, wearing a light pink shirt, red-and-blue tie and gray pin-striped suit, was flanked by his lawyers, including Houston attorney Rusty Hardin and Lanny Breuer of Washington, D.C"

...who were each a greenish shade of gray.

Did you run out of room to add, "...on the 5th?", to your headline, Houston?
"(512) ybbodeus looks just as creepy in HD as in person."   That is a problem, and we are working on it.

Let me help you out with the humorous part of what I said, Hawk.

His hair is cut short to make his head look smaller than it was when he was taking his Hulk B-12 vitamins or whatever they were. 

Oh, all right, I'm coming right out and saying his head was enormous the last time he wore an Astros cap because I think he was on a specific kind of PED.

Ha-ha.   :P
