I don't know what I was expecting.
But George Mitchell - he had no legal muscle, he just got some people to talk about other people.
So what we got is a really expensive piece of gossip.
It's sort of appropriate for the party season right now, and you can lump this right in with the party you went to last night.
"Hey, I heard that Smith was making out with his assistant in front of everyone last night."
"No way. Hey did you hear that Roger Clemens took steroids?"
"Yeah - it was on tv, some old guy was talking."
Just gossip fodder.
And it's even dumber now, because I can use this stupid list any way I want.
For instance, I dislike the Rocket.
So I go, "I KNEW it - Clemens is the biggest cheater EVER."
But I like Brian Roberts (and desperately want him to be a Cub).
So I go, "Yeah well he was just...having dinner with some bad guys - he never did anything wrong."
Now, it's still different for Barry Bonds because he might have lied to the principal and if so he's gonna have to go to detention.
But this Mitchell Report?
I downloaded the pdf, and it's got this gigantic table of contents and like, no pictures or anything, so I don't think I'll actually read it.
But you can.
Tell me if anything changes.
