And you thought it couldn't be worse?

So did I. But, my friend, we were wrong. It can always be worse

Singer admits affair with Roger Clemens

Country singer Mindy McCready confirms that she had a long-term affair with pitcher Roger Clemens, the New York Daily News reported on its Web site yesterday.

“I cannot refute anything in the story,” McCready told the newspaper.

The paper reported Monday that the two met in a Florida karaoke bar when McCready was 15 and Clemens was 28, pitching for Boston and a married father of two. The newspaper said it wasn't until later, after McCready had moved to Nashville and become a country singing star, that the relationship turned intimate.

Wow, guy. I hope you have a strong marriage to Mrs. C. Because, if the conditions were right, I could sure see her, after a few days of deliberation, going to the commissioner and/or whoever has the steroids brief for a little chat (assuming, of course, there's something to chat about). But if this is all in the past and you have a good marriage, you two can deal with it - may have already dealt with it for all we the public know!

It's just another reminder that once you become a celebrity these days, you cannot assume that anything will remain private. Behave accordingly.
