At last weeks Super Bowl in Dallas, the Yankees golden boy, All-Star third baseman Alex Rodriguez was caught on FOX’s Super Bowl broadcast being fed popcorn by his newest girlfriend, actress Cameron Diaz. During the broadcast of last weeks big game, FOX’s cameras were simply panning through one of the luxury boxes at the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium; a luxury box that included the likes of former President George W. Bush, John Madden, Ashton Kutcher and Alex Rodriguez among others. Unfortunately, or shall I say fortunately?… FOX caught a short clip of Alex having popcorn fed to him, much the same way that a goddess would be fed a bunch of grapes.
Now what makes this story so wonderful, is that reportedly A-Rod was went crazy after he learned about FOX’s airing of the footage on National television. In fact, according to Bill Zwecker at the Chicago Sun-Times, A-Rod “went ballistic” and truly felt that the “cameraman was out to get him.”
It’s okay Alex… Everyone outside of New York realizes what kind of ball player and man you are. You’ve been handed everything on a silver platter your entire career and when things don’t go your way you stoop to the lowest levels to achieve your goals: i.e. Steroid scandal, knocking the ball out of Bronson Arroyo’s glove in the 2004 ALCS, yelling “I got it” rounding third base in the 9th inning of a 2007 game against the Blue Jays causing Howie Clark to back off of an infield fly ball, and by backing down to any opposing player that challenges you on the field. At least now we know that you carry yourself the same way off the field as you do on the field. Maybe the Yankees can hire Cameron Diaz to crack open and feed Alex his sunflower seeds while he waits in the on deck circle, cause whatever Alex wants, Alex gets.
