Jackie Robinson speaks

Anybody see Andy Pettitte’s news conference yesterday?

At the risk of having my collection of “Stop Snitching” T-shirts repossessed, I must say: I have no problem with Andy ratting out Roger Clemens. Baseball needs to be cleaned up. And grown-ass men need to take responsibility for their actions.

This whole mess got me pondering the nature of teammates.

I’ve got a 45-second audio clip of Jackie Robinson recalling the reaction of his Brooklyn Dodger teammates when opposing fans and players would treat him viciously. This clip has been on my hard drive so long, I forgot where it comes from.
