Debbie Clemens, wife of Roger, has a website--I got to it through a Slate article so it's not that great a find. However, I suggest taking a stroll through her site and learning about the four F's, Family, Fitness, Fashion, and Fun! Who among us hasn't wondered what snack bars are preferred by a real pro athlete's wife. And check the 'baseballs and butterflies' online store. Crappy stuff made valuable by...a Roger Clemens autograph! A perfect metaphor for the insulated life a professional athlete's wife. That's what's so ridiculous about the whole 'I did it, so can you!' fitness advice. Considering that she works on about one project a year, her mantra of 'balance' and 'goals' is insulting to the majority of women in this country who work *and* have families. Most people whose lives are so disconnected from everyday realities have the self-awareness not to self-indulge by offering 'advice' on the web. And don't get me started on the music or butterfly cursor. Up next, retirement planning tips from the Hilton sisters. Ian

    I wonder what Chris Benson thinks of his wife's website. I feel kinda dirty just posting a comment about it.
