The Clemens Saga
I thought about this the other day with the recent revelations concerning a country singer I've never heard of, a real estate agent in Arizona, and the former wife of John Daly - but has any athlete fallen faster and harder from grace than Roger Clemens. He's gone from a sure fire first-ballot HoFer in the running for the greatest pitcher of all time to a lying cheater and philanderer. It's hard to imagine that he played for two Dude teams, yet has wound up, as I would imagine, as one of the more despised baseball players among the Dude Committee.
