Meb and Brian or Roger?

Aside from the time of day being a factor, who do you think drew the biggest crowd at this weekend's Chevron Houston Marathon expo?

Meb Keflezighi and Brian Sell or Roger Clemens?

While this year's opening event ceremony press conference, sans Mayor Bill White, was better attended than last year's, Meb and Brian couldn't compare with one of Houston's hometown favorites.

It was hands down, Roger Clemens.

Clemens was in attendance late Saturday morning to a phalanx of television cameras and a throng of running-a la baseball fans to be part of a presentation touting his partnership with the Memorial Hermann Healthcare System and its opening of Roger Clemens Institute for Sports Medicine & Human Performance last Monday.

No breaking announcement, however, of whether he'll stay and pitch for the Astros or join two-time Andy Pettitte with the New York Yankees.
