Mike Piazza… Karate Lessons for Revenge Against Roger Clemens
Let’s go back in time real quick, back in 200o Mike Piazza OWNED the Yankees pitching staff. During inter-league play against the Yankees, Roger Clemens beaned Piazza which knocked Piazza out the game with a concussion. Many people viewed the beaning as a dirty play by Clemens, I’ll be honest I didn’t have a problem with it but I had more a problem with the response by the Mets (which was really no response). Piazza and Clemens did meet up again in the playoffs with another confrontation but again nothing came out of that except some exchanging of words, blah blah blah….
Now we find out in excerpts from Piazza’s soon to be released memoir that he had a plan to exact revenge on Clemens…. Karate????
The following is from the NY Post”
Piazza tells how he mapped out a plan for revenge — taking karate lessons and visualizing the next time they would go at it.
“I would approach with my fist pulled back. I figured he’d throw his glove out for protection. I’d parry the glove and then get after it,” Piazza writes.
WTH, this kat was choreographing his attack?
As much as I am a die-hard Mets fan, reading that Piazza wanted to exact revenge against Clemens with karate is HILARIOUS and at the same time it has me smh.
Oh well, too bad we will never get to see Piazza’s kung-fu. We will get a look into Piazza’s thoughts on roids and allegations of him being gay.
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
