Andy Pettitte (PEHT’-iht) looked like he wanted to be anywhere but on the witness stand in the perjury trial of former baseball star Roger Clemens.
During breaks in the proceedings Tuesday, Pettitte sometimes rubbed his eyes for several seconds, looking like he couldn’t wait for this to end.
But Pettitte returns to the stand Wednesday, when Clemens’ lawyers will continue to try to sow doubts about the testimony Pettitte provided for prosecutors when he said Clemens had mentioned to him that he had taken human growth hormone.
Clemens, who told Congress in 2008 that his friend and former teammate “misremembers” the conversation, is accused of lying to Congress when he said he never took HGH or steroids.
Pettitte and Clemens pitched together for the New York Yankees and Houston Astros.

Alex Rodriguez, Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, Rafael Palmeiro and Mark McGwire should all be elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. The hall is filled with bigots, ball players that never played against black baseball players, drug abusers, wife beaters and alcoholics. Why not add some cheaters to the mix? And if baseball writers and the hall are so against these steroid users, why is all their record-breaking memorabilia in the Hall of Fame?
Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, LeBron James and the rest of the Miami Heat will win the 2010-11 NBA championship. “They will never lose two games in a row this year, other 29 teams better hope the lockout gets moved up a year.” – Jeff Van Gundy on Heat.
As a die-hard Yankee fan, the Tampa Bay Rays scare me (A LOT!).
The Detroit Pistons signed center Ben Wallace to a two-year contract when his knees retired two years ago.
And last but not least…
