While Kirk Radomski waits patiently by the telephone for a call from Bobby Bonilla that never comes, it would appear as though at least one baseball legend remembers an old clubhouse buddy.  From Newsday’s David Lennon.

In a surprising twist to their public war of words, Roger Clemens and his former trainer, Brian McNamee, spoke by telephone Friday night, Newsday has learned. It was their first contact since the Mitchell Report was released Dec. 13, and a person close to the situation described the hourlong conversation between the longtime friends as “emotional.”

It is unclear whether Clemens or McNamee initiated the call, and attempts to reach representatives for both of them Saturday night were unsuccessful. Clemens and McNamee have been friends since 1998, when the two were together on the Blue Jays, and it was Clemens who got McNamee hired by the Yankees after he was obtained from Toronto at the start of the 1999 season.

I’m sure a few of you are old enough to remember Stevie Wonder’s “I Just Called To Say I Love You” being used for a phone company advertisement.  Not nearly as well known is the Wonder composition, “I Just Rang So We Could Get Our Stories Straight Before Testifying In Front Of Congress”, which until now was thought far too unwieldy for a TV commercial.
