Mike Piazza’s wife alleged to TMZ that Roger Clemens was in a state of ROID RAGE when he hurled Mike Piazza’s broken bat, nearly missing the Mets catcher in the 2000 World Series.
Piazza’s wife, ex-Playmate Alicia Rickter, was at the end of dinner when TMZ caught up with her and scored the juicy quote — dinner and drinks, no doubt. But was it just the alcohol talking? Watch the clip above. Do you think Clemens was ‘roid ragin’? Let us know in the comments.
Rickter just made a lot of Mets fans very happy. They’ve been making ‘roid rage jokes about that moment for years. Given that they’re Mets fans, the Playmate’s indiscretion might be the happiest moment in their lives.
But it’s not just Mets fans who revile the giant a-hole, he’s well known for pissing people off all around the country. Red Sox fans hate him mercilessly, and he was one of the best players to ever play for them. Roger Clemens is pretty much hated by everybody, and the Piazza-Bat fiasco represents what was probably his lowest moment until the Mitchell Report. Now he’s had plenty of more low moments for all the haters to take glee in.
How hated is Roger Clemens? I’m fairly certain that when he dies, people will drunkenly pee on his grave. Probably while stumbling through a bad joke referencing this exact moment. Behold, history!
The Mitchell Report, of course, is the source that first pegged Clemens as a juice head (he’d be perfect for Snookie). Clemens has routinely denied being a steroid user, instead blaming his wife, his best friend, the family dog, and a plant that once looked at him funny. The Mitchell report isn’t the be all, end all of steroids reporting but it became pretty clear that Clemens is full of s#%t.
Have I mentioned that he’s an unrepentant a-hole who allegedly carried on a 10-year affair with a country singer that started when she was 15 years old? Yeah, I didn’t make that up. He’s a real gentleman, that one.
Meanwhile, here’s some pics of Alicia. You can disgrace any sports legend you want, darlin’.
