It always comes back to Springsteen

In case you missed in it on Tuesday, Bruce Springsteen came up when Roger Clemens was questioned by Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton about his relationship with Brian McNamee.

Rep. Norton: You got him Bruce Springsteen tickets. I call that love.

Roger Clemens: Congresswoman, I did not get him Bruce Springsteen tickets.

Rep. Norton: Well … let us correct the record.

When the hearing was over, The (real) Boss came up again when Rusty Hardin was blasting McNamee.

“He asked for money, he asked for Bruce Springsteen … Roger’s point was, maybe he should have given him the Bruce Springsteen tickets. Maybe this all would have been gone. But Roger couldn’t get him any,” Hardin said.

In honor of Bruce getting mixed up in this, here are the lyrics to Glory Days:

I had a friend was a big baseball player
back in high school
He could throw that speedball by you
Make you look like a fool boy
Saw him the other night at this roadside bar
I was walking in, he was walking out
We went back inside sat down had a few drinks
but all he kept talking about was

Glory days well they’ll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl’s eye
Glory days, glory days

Well there’s a girl that lives up the block
back in school she could turn all the boy’s heads
Sometimes on a Friday I’ll stop by
and have a few drinks after she put her kids to bed
Her and her husband Bobby well they split up
I guess it’s two years gone by now
We just sit around talking about the old times,
she says when she feels like crying
she starts laughing thinking about


Now I think I’m going down to the well tonight
and I’m going to drink till I get my fill
And I hope when I get old I don’t sit around thinking about it
but I probably will
Yeah, just sitting back trying to recapture
a little of the glory of, well time slips away
and leaves you with nothing mister but
boring stories of glory days
