Roger Clemens Trial, Take 2

Barring an unexpected twist, like a mistrial being declared, U.S. v. Roger Clemens will be heard before U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton over the next four to six weeks.  This is the case's second trial, with last summer's trial being declared a mistrial because prosecutors showed jurors comments by U.S. Congressman Elijah Cummings about his views on the credibility of Andy Pettitte and his wife, Laura.  This is likely the last "major athlete and steroids-related perjury" case that we'll see for many years.  I suspect it will go out with with some fireworks.

I preview the trial for and also for CNN.
