In his first public comments since testifying that he injected Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone, McNamee gave about 25 high school athletes, coaches and parents a warning about mistakes that can tarnish one's reputation.
``My lifetime of actions can be defined by one singular monumental mistake,'' he said in a 12-minute talk at a friend's supplement store. ``I'm trying to learn from my mistake. I want you to learn from my mistake, and other peoples' mistakes.''
McNamee canceled sit-down interviews with a local television station and Associated Press reporter, saying, ``I've got to think about my kids.''
He did not elaborate, walking away and leaving through the back door as the lights were turned off.
McNamee is a key source for the Mitchell Report that laid bare the prevalence of steroids in baseball. Clemens has denied the allegations.
