Do you think he was wearing eye black?

In a story that sounds about right, The AP is reporting that Roger Clemens was asked to leave a baseball game for arguing a call that went against his son's team.

Clemens was at the game Saturday watching his son, Kacy, compete in a 10-and-under game organized by Triple Crown Sports when Clemens contested a call at second base that went against the Katy Cowboys.

He spit sunflower seeds at an umpire's leg and was asked to leave, said Jim Carpenter, a field supervisor with Triple Crown.

"I supported the umpire's decision, and he (Clemens) respectfully left," Carpenter told the Craig Daily Press.

Katy lost the game to the Bakersfield Curve, 11-5.

My only question -- other than whether Clemens showed up wearing jean shorts and a wife-beater -- is was he also wearing eye black?
