Say what you mean, mean what you say.

It is seems that Roger Clemens might come out of retirement again. He did it once, so why shouldn't he do it twice? This is a really poplular thing to do with artist and athletes. Examples? Mr. Air himself, Michael Jordan, who has come out of retirement several times. In fact, I think he is overdue for another come back. Then there are Celine Dion and Elton John. Both made retirement announcements only to come back a little while later. It's called taking a break, or a long vacation, but not retirement. Retirement implies that you won't be doing what you have been doing anymore, that you no longer have to go to work every day, or in The Rocket's case every five days. It does not imply that you will be coming back after a year or so. If you are going to retire hang around the house, travel the world, buy stuff you don't need, but under no circumstances come back. That's what I am going to do.
