Roger Clemens is still a hit at his Alma Mater. Clemens showed up on the UT sideline Saturday night with special guest Derek Jeter. Clemens had no problem taking pictures and signing autographs with the fan friendly Longhorns' fans. Jeter did pose for a few pictures, but I didn't see him signing any autographs.
They did leave the game early, but who didn't. And I'm sure they wanted to catch Game 6 of the ALCS.
It was kind of an unusual duo. They're former teammates and all, but you would think Jeter would want nothing to do with Roger's negative light. Jeter has always been a class act and Clemens needs all the positive energy for his image.
Maybe the strangest aspect of the scene was instead of playing October baseball, Jeter and Clemens were on the sideline of a college football game.
By the way, Clemens' physical appearance was huge. Unless I misremebered, he's obviously not stopped his hard core workout program and what ever else he and his wife do under the table.
