A-Rod furious at Super Bowl candid shot

Posted on: February 8, 2011 6:31 pm
 
Rodriguez, DiazOnly A-Rod could have made this worse.

After being caught on national TV at the Super Bay being fed popcorn by actress Cameron Diaz, Rodriguez went ballistic, a source told the Chicago Sun-Times. A-Rod demanded he not be shown again on television for the duration of the game.

"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."

As a result of the decree, the game prominently showed former President George Bush and his wife whenever going for the celebrity shots.

It's hard to blame Rodriguez for being upset about how he was viewed on national TV. After all, he already has struggled with outside- and self-perception issues and he likely knew he would be mocked -- as he was -- for what millions of people saw on TV.

But in the end, Rodriguez really had no grounds to complain. He is a public figure dating another public figure at perhaps the biggest American spectacle of the year sitting in the front row of a luxury suite. And being fed food by Cameron Diaz has certainly crossed more than one male's mind in the past.

You can't blame A-Rod for being upset at what was shown. But it should have been left there. His demands to stay off the TV just compounds the issue.

A-Rod furious at Super Bowl candid shot

Well baseball fans are upset with A-Rod for defrauding the Yankees fans out of millions of dollars. If you do not want to be on camera put your head in a hole and leave it there. A lot of fans do not want to see you anyway.

Contrary to what you may feel, Hawkman, these are paid journalists that have a job to do. They do not go around making up sources.

  Must have been roid rage.....Nothing to be furious about here.  If my girlfriend tries to feed me something and I don't want it I do not open my mouth.  It is pretty simple.  Your ability to go out unseen in public went away with the billion dollars the American public pays you a year....chode!

A-Rod furious at Super Bowl candid shot

This is worse than TMZ.  "A source", also known as "some guy" told a newspaper about Rodriguez's actions.  Which means I have absolutely zero reason to think it's true.  I can't believe they actually tried to make a story out of this and people responded to the infamous "some guy" source again.

I am Yankee fan and this gives me and the rest of the Yankees fans even more reason to dislike this guy.  He is such a tool!  I can't stand that he is in a Yankee uniform and he represents the pin stripes and the state of New York.  The only thing he should be mad abput is all the other women he is banging might not be happy with this.
