Rolemodels or Lack Thereof

Probable non-recreational drug user and professional ball handler Clemens was testifying at the US congress. It appears that he was injected with banned performance enhancing drugs. He is supposed to be a role model. Not really, the only types that grow up with pro athletes as role models are aspiring pro athletes themselves. In the same way aspiring drug lords consider drug lords, real or fictional, as their role models. Charles Barkley, he of the $10 million gambling loses, said it best, athletes are not role models.
