Rocket Man

In one of those not-for-mere-mortal duels between legendary pitchers, Houston's Roger Clemens bested the Cubs' Greg Maddux last night to post his 343rd win, placing him eighth on the all-time victories list. The Rocket threw six shutout innings before a sold-out crowd at Wrigley Field.

"I hope the fans enjoyed it. It's pretty special," Clemens said after the game, describing the face-off of two 300-plus game winners.

We are not worthy. At 43, this guy is still a friggin' god.

Thanks for giving a shout out to the almighty Rocket. You made my day. He should make an appearance in STD...

Considering he’s the biggest Longhorn fan this side of that gd hillbilly McConaughey, I always WANTED to hate Clemens, but he was too damn good.

Thank God the jackass threw that bat at Piazza.
