Report: A-Rod Flipped Out Over Cameron Diaz Popcorn Feeding Incident

By now I’m sure you have all seen the video of Cameron Diaz feeding Alex Rodriguez popcorn at the Super Bowl.  While some of us think it just makes him look like even more of a pansy than we already thought he was, others probably don’t think it’s a big deal at all.  Come to think of it, I may be as big an A-Rod hater as they come but even I don’t think it was the end of the world.  It was just a couple being a couple.  Apparently A-Rod disagrees.

On Tuesday, a Fox source told the Chicago Sun-Times that A-Rod threw a nutty when he realized what had been shown to the 111 million viewers watching the Super Bowl. “He really went ballistic — thinking the cameraman was out to get them in a paparazzi-like shot. … That’s so crazy,” the source said. “Anyone who knows anything about producing a live sports event — especially something as huge as the Super Bowl — would know that those celebrity shots are purely random. A-Rod, of all people, should know that.”

The source also said that once A-Rod saw the shot he had to be given a guarantee that it would not be shown again on the television broadcast because he was so upset. If that isn’t a terrific example of someone admitting they looked like a tool bag on national television then I don’t know what is.  I know I’m contradicting myself and it’s fun to make fun of athletes for stuff like this, but is it really that big of a deal?  Maybe he was afraid all his other girlfriends would be jealous.

Cameron Diaz Feeds A-Rod Popcorn at Super Bowl (Video)

Something strange happened at the Super Bowl on Sunday night: the halftime show wasn’t the most pathetic moment of the evening. By no means am I saying the Black Eyed Peas were good, but thanks to a certain athlete-celebrity couple it didn’t take long for viewers to want to rip their eyes out.  Check out the video of Cameron Diaz feeding A-Rod popcorn:

I think I speak for everyone except delusional Yankee fans when I say nobody wanted to see that.  Use your own hands, bro — America already thinks you’re a big enough pansy as it is. Save that crap for your NYC helicopter rides. Thanks to YouTube user mocksessiondotcom for the video.

Alex Rodriguez Gets the Last Laugh

Suck it, Feliz. By the way, it was only fair that A-Rod hit .190 and struck out looking to end the series. He’s still on the Rangers’ payroll ya know.

A-Rod Hurt in BP Because of Joe Buck

If Joe Buck’s announcing didn’t already ruin the game for Yankees fans used to their beloved Michael Kay calling games, then Buck did his best to screw things up earlier in the day. The Yankees beat the Red Sox Saturday 5-2 despite not having A-Rod in the lineup. Alex got hurt during batting practice when a ball Lance Berkman hit caught A-Rod in the leg and knocked him down. It hurt Rodriguez so badly (either that or you can conclude he’s a pansy) that he missed the game. Here’s a video of A-Rod getting hit in BP in case you missed it:

Naturally you’re wondering where Buck comes in at this point. As D.J. Short points out at HardballTalk, A-Rod was distracted because he was waving to say “hi” to Buck. We’re not sure how much time he’s going to miss (if anything at all). We do know that if he were on the Joe Buck schedule he’d have a full week off to rest. I’m guessing A-Rod doesn’t miss a game. Luckily the Yankees didn’t miss him on Saturday.

UPDATE: Joe Buck says he didn’t initiate the contact

A-Rod Hits No. 600

Personally, I don’t care one bit. Alex Rodriguez is a steroid user who loves himself, has terrible taste in women, and misses team photos. However, some of you may care and this took me all of 35 seconds to post. So here’s the video of A-Rod’s 600th career home run, courtesy of YouTube user Monisrocks1995:

A-Rod Misses Yankees Team Picture

OK, simple job for you: find the one non-Yankee player or coach in this photo. Alright, I’ll make it easier — Alex Rodriguez missed the Yankees team picture on Tuesday. Instead, team director of publications Alfred Santasiere III stood in for him and will later be photoshopped out. I have no idea why A-Rod missed it and neither does anyone else. Apparently he’s the only Yankee who can’t spare five minutes to participate in the team photo.

“Captain Kangaroo will probably get Alex for this one,” [Manager Joe] Girardi said. “Players aren’t always the best at reading memos put on their chairs.”

According to the New York Post, A-Rod showed up a half hour late for the photo because he missed the memo.

“I’m going to try to delay kangaroo court as much as possible because I know I’m going to get crushed,” Rodriguez said. “The boys are going to get me good. No excuse. I know one of our front office guys had to play Alex Rodriguez for a couple of minutes. I have to find that guy and shake his hand because it must have been a tough situation.” A-Rod semi makes up for things by going Rickey Henderson on us with that response but I’m sure he’ll get it in kangaroo court. It’s been a long couple of weeks for lucky 13.

A-Rod 600th Home Run Means Little

Raise your hand if you care that New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez is on the verge of hitting his 600th career home run? Yeah, me neither. Yes, there are only six other players who are ahead of him on the all-time home run list, but I still think it’s pretty meaningless to care about this “achievement.”

I never really liked A-Rod to begin with. But I did respect him. I respected him because he was a great athlete who was one of the true players we had left. However, when he admitted that he had taken steroids even after repeatedly saying he hadn’t, that’s when all that respect went down the drain. It was a complete disgrace to the game of baseball and I think that if anyone opens their mouth and says how amazing A-Rod’s 600th homer is I will punch them. Honoring this “achievement” is insulting to the greats who got to this mark in their career with pure talent. I’m sorry, but I won’t insult Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth or Willie Mays by saying this is something to get excited about.
