Former Yankees pitcher Roger Clemens has a chance to clear his name – and snag $500,000 – if he appears on the new Fox show “The Moment of Truth.”
The strange program, which debuted to 23 million viewers last week, sent a letter to the Rocket’s manager, asking Roger Clemens to appear.
Contestants on the show are asked a series of personal questions while hooked up to a polygraph – and then have to own up to their answers.
Clemens’ reputation has been sullied by ex-trainer Brian McNamee, who ratted out or lied about (depending on what you believe) Roger in the Mitchell Report.
Don’t hold your breath for Roger Clemens’ “Moment of Truth.”
Howard Schultz, executive producer, says Roger Clemens can put the question of his steroid use to rest and donate his winnings to the charity of his choice:
“People have stood in awe at your incredible accomplishments. This could let the world know that you are a courageous person, as well as to clear your name in front of a nationwide audience, all in the name of charity.”
Somehow we doubt Rocket will jump at the offer.
As for the real moment of truth for Roger Clemens? His meeting with Congress’ committee investigating steroids was pushed back to February 5.
