Let's have a moment of silence for those rich baseball players who were not granted the highest of accolades on Wednesday with the announcement of this year's Hall of Fame inductions. Roger Clemens is among those not voted in, and he doesn't want you to shed a tear.
The Baseball Writers’ Association of America released its results for the 2013 Hall of Fame inductions. This year's class will feature zero former ballplayers, save the 19th century's Deacon White.
Opinions are spread wide on those who were snubbed and for what reason. As for Clemens, he released this wonderful note with a font only a pre-teen could love, as well as a lovely sign-off phrase.
Here is the tweet the former star pitcher posted along with a note which is specifically designed for all you comic sans lovers out there.

Oh, aren't you a sweetheart?
Now Clemens and a lot of other stars of the steroid era get some grief, but I tend to think they are getting an unkind rap with voters.
If the Hall of Fame is good enough for Ty Cobb, it's good enough for guys who may have taken performance-enhancing drugs.
That's another argument for another article.
What's really driving the discourse on Clemens isn't the paltry 37.6 percent of the vote he received, it's his phrase, "Muchie Peachie," thrown out there as if it's all normal.
Still, you don't go throwing around "Muchie Peachie" as if it were a goodbye handshake. This is essentially the same as saying goodbye to one of your friends by tickling them first.
Either way, I am now adopting this phrase as part of my own personal lexicon.
