What the Who to the When, and Why?

In this article, the always-eloquent "ESPN.com news services" comments on a recent report that, sometime in the last few days, Brian McNamee told the government that Roger Clemens had an abscess on his buttocks (although the question of which cheek is not answered) in 1998.

The article's headline, however, is stunningly ambiguous, leaving the reader to wonder whether McNamee reported the alleged abscess in 1998 or whether the abscess appeared in 1998 and was left unreported until now.

To quote countless sarcastic teenagers throughout history... nice.
