TWT FIVE QUOTES FROM WEDNESDAY’S CONGRESSIONAL STEROID HEARING

1. It’s hard to believe you, sir. I hate to say that. You’re one of my heroes, but it’s hard to believe. Rep. Elijah Cummings, Maryland Democrat, to Roger Clemens

2. Make no mistake: when I told [former] Senator Mitchell that I injected Roger Clemens with performance-enhancing drugs, I told the truth. Brian McNamee

3. This is really disgusting. You’re here as a sworn witness, you’re here to tell the truth, you’re here under oath. And yet we have lie after lie after lie. I don’t know what to believe. I know one thing I don’t believe, and that’s you. Rep. Dan Burton, Indiana Republican, to McNamee

4. Mr. Clemens, all I can say is, I’m sure you’re going to heaven. Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton, D.C. Democrat

NBA All-Star Weekend

Rudy Gay apparently has recruited people on YouTube for suggestions on how to win the slam dunk contest. Peja Stojakovic, however, said he doesn’t need help from the Internet to refine his 3-point stroke.

No. 9 Michigan State at No. 12 Indiana

Capitals at Lightning

Lightning center Nick Tarnasky comes from a place called Rocky Mountain House, Alberta. Yeah, anyone born in a town with that name probably wouldn’t take up squash. His team meets the Caps tomorrow night.

No. 8 Georgetown at Syracuse

After last weekend’s loss to Louisville, the Hoyas can’t afford another one if they want to stay atop the Big East. Another loss for the Orange tomorrow would put them at risk of missing the conference tournament.
