A-Rod furious at Super Bowl candid shot

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.

You can't blame him for being angry?  REALLY?  Um, yes, I blame him, any man who gets pissed off about being seen having a hot actress feed popcorn to him is officially one of the biggest tools alive.

A-Rod furious at Super Bowl candid shot

Being a Red Sox fan, I don't really keep up with A-Rod.  For example, I thought he was hangin' with Madonna.  So now I learn it's Cameron Diaz.  Guess I better start following this guy more closely.  He seems to get around.  Heck, I don't even know if he's officially divorced and how much money he lost if he is.  Still could afford the front row of a luxury suite though.  Guess he shoulda paid off the cameraman  before the game to keep away.  At least we now know how's he's getting ready for spring training.  Football and popcorn and actresses.  Looking better for the Sox all the time.

Couldn't agree more. He's turned into a complete diva. If I were a Yankees fan I'd be embarrassed. Being a Cub fan I have some experience with that. Poor guy, being at the SB with a hot famous actress. Next we'll hear his diamond shoes are too tight and his wallet is too small for his $50's.

You cant blame a-ass for being upset?  Are you on his payroll or something?  All celebs, good and bad ones, get shown on camera at games.  Sorry Evan but that is a really idiotic comment.

Quite a lady in that booth though.......and the girl feeding her popcorn is cute!

Hey A-Rod, news flash you big crybaby! When you're in a sky box with a world-famous actress and you're the highest paid baseball player on the planet, attending the world's second biggest sporting event after the World Cup, what do you expect? If you don't want to be shown on t.v. in the offseason, then watch the Super Bowl from one of your 10 mansions on the couch. Punk.
