Brian Fees of The Daily Review in Towanda writes about his moment in the Rocket's sights

It was Brian Fees of The Daily Review in Towanda who asked the seemingly-harmless queston that got Roger Clemens all wound up. Fees writes about the incident, and the Yankees, in today's paper.

  • UPDATE: Also, Chad Jennings talked to Fees and wrote a story about the exchange in today's Times-Tribune. Read it here.

    Fees found Clemens "scary" and "downright intimidating"?

    That's embarrassing.

    Come on over to the real world and deal with interviewing a dirty cop, a pixxed-off Army officer accused of wrongdoing, a pol facing indictment, a business owner who thinks you're threatening his livelihood or an accused criminal.

    Clemens is a freakin' cupcake.

    Yeah, but if Clemens wanted to walk over and rearrange Fees' face, he could do it ... and also get away with it. He's a rich big shot, we're neither; fame talks and, ultimately, walks. I don't blame him.

    Fees did OK for himself. Soft question makes the major media rounds and he gets a column out of it as well. Good for Fees, slim pickings in Towanda every other day.

    Yeah, he could do it...but he wouldn't get away with it. Fees would own a ranch in Texas.

    Then he could pretend he works for a newspaper there, as well as up here.

    Oh, wait -- that's been done already.

    Imagine Clemens' horror if he found out he wasted all that energy on a semi-literate hack from Towanda.
    Yeah, I know it's only Towanda, but that column ... someone needs to teach this dude some punctuation.

    On the subject of people whose lives have been touched by the Clemens Minor League Experience, a blog had a fun Q&A with the Class A Fort Myers guy who homered off Clemens:

    And perhaps we're better off with a general grasp. Download Classical Music Online In conclusion, I would like to state that while the debate will surely go on for years to come, I would recommend for you and your child listen to classical music. Nelson, who it seems hasn't aged in around thirty years, and Haggard came to prominence during the rise in popularity of outlaw country in the 1970s, a movement that saw a trend towards songs about jail, drinking, drugs and hard working men. Now I can finally sing classics such as "Angels We Have Heard on High" with confidence.
