And they say federal prosecutors have no sense of humor.

Apparently, we are now asked to believe that, in the highest profile case pending in the highest profile sports "scandal" since the Black Sox, our dedicated public servants accidentally did what the judge already had told them was precisely the thing that would occasion a mistrial. Yes, and This Blog is the Tsar of all the Russias.

Sorry, fellas. You're as full of stuffing as the Christmas goose. Either deliberately, or because you're the biggest courtroom bunglers since the Stooges sought the moiderer of Kirk Robin, you did something you were specifically ordered not to do. In either case, there is no reason for the court -- let alone the defense -- to trust that you'll ever act in good faith in regards to Roger Clemens ever again. And, in doing so, you violated Clemens' Sixth Amendment right to a fair trial.  If This Blog is the judge, you don't get a do-over on something like that.

Move along, lads. There are Wall Street crooks for you to chase.
