I have to admit that I think he's on to something.
"Although Clemens' and Bonds' careers have taken the same arc toward eternal athletic life, they are perceived as differently as, well, white and black.It a bit of a disturbing acknowledgment and shows that we may still have further to go.
America does not want to believe the dirt on Clemens because he is a nice guy, a family guy, a good ol' guy and, let's be honest here, a Caucasian guy.
America likes its sport villains dark and moody and everything that has always been Bonds."
Mr. Plaschke, I give you a thumbs up for this editorial, but I promise this is the last time I do.
