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.
