The judge declared a mistrial today in Roger Clemens' perjury case after prosecutors showed jurors evidence that was previously ruled inadmissible.

U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton said the prosecutors had made a grave error and that the baseball legend could no longer be assured a fair trial.

Walton scheduled a September 2 hearing to determine whether to hold a new trial, but the jurors were dismissed and the case is off - for now.

Roger Clemens was indicted for perjury for allegedly lying to Congress during a 2008 investigation into performance-enhancing drug use in the sport.

He is not being charged with using drugs, per se, but for knowingly false testimony he allegedly gave involving his use of the substances years ago.

This morning, in the second day of testimony, the judge interrupted prosecutors' playing of a video from his 2008 testimony before Congress.

The jury was removed from the room. When they returned, they were dismissed, and the judge issued the following explanation of why:

Presented by ESPN, the ESPY Awards hand out hardware to athletes that have already won the most important prize in their line of work. It's pretty ridiculous, really.

But who cares?!? It also results in opportunities to see sports stars and personalities in outfits that are far more revealing than what we're stuck with on SportsCenter every night. Two cases in point from last night's ceremony: Brooklyn Decker and Maria Sharapova.

Go compare their looks now and then do the same below for Erin Andrews and Danica Patrick.

Brooklyn Decker vs. Maria Sharapova in tennis? That would be no contest, although the former is married to a tennis star in Andy Roddick. That counts for ... well, nothing, other than giving us material for this intro.

In a style showdown, though? You be the judge!

As a swimsuit model by trade, Brooklyn looks slammin' in anything, but the three-time Grand Slam winner is certainly no slouch. Who looked best at last night's ESPY Awards? Cast a vote and decide in this THG Fashion Face-Off!

One enjoyed an incredible year in his field, earning an MVP trophy for one of the most inspired basketball performances of the last 12 months.

The other is Dirk Nowitzki.

But while the short singer and the tall NBA power forward seem to have nothing in common, both turned out for the ESPY Awards in Los Angeles last night. Bieber was simply a cute attendee, but Nowitzki walked away with the titles of Best NBA Player and Best Male Athlete.

Best Dressed, though? That's up to readers to decide below.

The police record of former Cowboys star Michael Irvin is as decorated as this Hall of Famer's resume. He's been busted for numerous alleged crimes, including drug possession and sexual assault.

This month, though, the controversial ex-wide receiver covers Out and wonders if his sordid behavior was related to living with his gay, late brother, Vaughn.

"Maybe some of the issues I’ve had with so many women, just bringing women around so everybody can see, maybe that’s the residual of the fear I had that if my brother is wearing ladies’ clothes, am I going to be doing that? Is it genetic?” Irvin says in the article. “I’m certainly not making excuses for my bad decisions. But I had to dive inside of me to find out why am I making these decisions, and that came up.”

You may not have read about it in the papers, but Kenny Powers - superstar athlete, product endorser and man's man - just took over K-Swiss shoes.

Kenny (the lead character played by Danny McBride on Eastbound & Down) isn't here to play games, either. He's here to hump the sports world into submission.

With NFL stars Matt Cassel and Patrick Willis, boxer Jon "Bones" Jones and none other than Jillian Michaels on board his team, how can he go wrong?

Mark Cuban and Michael Bay can step off.

I'm the CEO, You Shut Up. The title of his book says it all. Prepare for classic Kenny Powers quotes and business knowledge to be dropped on your dome ...

Tiger Woods and his agent promised a HUGE announcement earlier today. Sadly, the announcement of Tiger's announcement was the most exciting part.

The golf great and Mark Steinberg had everyone buzzing. Would Tiger announce that he'd miss all of 2011? His retirement from the game completely?

That he required additional surgery? That he was getting rid of that sweet goatee? That he impregnated Rachel Uchitel and/or Joslyn James?

No to all. They're moving to a new management company. Whoop dee $h!t.

Tiger Woods, Goatee

Winless since '09 and recovering from injuries, Tiger Woods won't be playing in this week's Open Championship. Or announcing anything remotely interesting.

Steinberg and Tiger are leaving IMG and moving to Excel Sports Management. That's it. Why this warranted any sort of announcement at all, who knows.

The over people at Excel are probably out lighting cigars with $100 bills and Ferraris with their commissions. The rest of the people on Earth do not care.

Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was arrested early Sunday. We'd blame the NFL lockout for taking away the structure in the man's life, but he's been arrested about 39 times prior to this.

Jones was charged with disorderly conduct after an incident at a Cincinnati bar. At the Scene Ultra Lounge, he became intoxicated and disruptive. He was asked to leave but was "uncooperative and needed to be escorted out."

Jones shouted profanities and then tried to get out of his handcuffs as officers attempted to arrest him. He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday.

Pacman's most publicized legal woes stemmed from a 2007 strip club melee in Las Vegas that left one employee partially paralyzed and two wounded.

Jones appeared to be turning things around, saying last year: "I'm happy I finally got everything behind me. I'm trying to do whatever I have to do to never come back to nothing that is close to this situation again."

Alas, that pledge didn't last long.

Signed by the Bengals last year, Jones played in five games before suffering a neck injury. For the season, he amassed 13 tackles, one interception, one forced fumble returned for a touchdown, and 200 hours of community service.
