    The Wide World Of Sports: The Thrill Of Victory, And The Agony Of Disclosure


    The grandfather of Kevin Everett, Junior Nico, told 2 On Your Side's Scott Levin Wednesday night that Kevin is planning on returning to Buffalo to walk out on the field for the December 23rd game.

    On Tuesday, we learned that Kevin's story is being told by Sports Illustrated.

    Via WGRZ Buffalo.

    The doctor that probably saved Everett's life is a guy named Dr. Andrew Cappuccino.  He saved him using a bizarre method that involved partial hypothermia.
    God, I hope they call that method the Frozen Cappuccino (I'm claiming that, right now) in the future.  They really should.

    Now, the agony of disclosure.

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Seven-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens and Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte were the first names to emerge Thursday from the Mitchell report. reported Brian McNamee, a former trainer for the Yankees and Clemens, told investigators he supplied Clemens and Pettitte with steroids and that information is in the report. The Web site cited an unidentified source close to the trainer.

    "After we read the report, we will have something to say," said Randy Hendricks, the agent for Clemens and Pettitte.

    The Los Angeles Times reported in 2006 that Clemens and Pettitte were among the players former major league pitcher Jason Grimsley accused of using performance-enhancing drugs, according to a federal agent's affidavit. Clemens and Pettitte have denied the allegations. On Wednesday, Pettitte said "I've not heard a word from anyone" about former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell's investigation.

    Citing two lawyers familiar with the investigation, The New York Times reported McNamee also provided information about retired first baseman David Segui. On Monday, Segui admitted he used steroids and purchased shipments from former New York Mets clubhouse attendant Kirk Radomski.

    That's via Yahoo, and that's brilliant.  Brilliant.

    And... baseball loses.  Again.  Except for the Colorado Rockies.
