1.  Very long, informative and life-affirming interview with Jeff Tweedy in today's Pfork.

2.  Color me one of the few Yankee fans not foaming at the mouth in anticipation of the return of Roger Clemens.  To be honest, I was never really fully on board with him the first time around; please recall that after leaving Toronto (where he was astoundingly brilliant) his first season with the Yanks he went 14-10 with a 4.60 ERA, and that's the version of Clemens that I remember.  (Feel free to look at his numbers - his worst seasons were with New York.)  I really only recall him having 2 or 3 brilliant games, and most of his wins came because of incredible run support.  (Also, we had to give up the much-beloved (at the time) David Wells to get him.)  I'm glad to have him, especially after all of the horrendous bullshit the pitching staff has been through, but let's be honest - his last 3 (short) seasons were in the NL Central, which is just a notch above AAA ball.  I expect him to be a 5-inning starter with an ERA north of 4 once he gets started, which means that the bullpen is still gonna be screwed.

It was a very lazy weekend.
