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

I'm a Yankees fan and THIS GUY IS A CLOWN!!! Hey A-Rod....YOU WILL NEVER BE DEREK JETER, YOU WILL NEVER RISE TO THE BASEBALL STATUS OF DEREK JETER, YOU WILL NEVER CAPTURE THE HEARTS OF BASEBALL FANS LIKE DEREK JETER!! I will stand and applaud when you drive in the winning run of a game or make a defensive play to end the game, but I am cheering for the uniform...NOT FOR YOU!!

P.S. - You will NEVER be considered a true Yankee.

A-Rod furious at Super Bowl candid shot

I'm furious too about them showing A-Rod on television.  I don't want to see him any more than he doesn't want to be seen.  In fact, I demand that he not be shown on television ever again - including on the field during baseball season.

YEAH? BUT how about this?

Cameron Diaz is a DOGFACE.  If she didnt take it in every hole, would Rodriguez still be into her?  Find a picture of her with her face NOT painted on.  OH, the horror!!

A-Rod furious at Super Bowl candid shot

Love him or hate him, he's filthy rich for playing a kids game, and part of the deal of being a celeb is being photographed when out in public, especially at the Super Bowl where there are thousands of photographers and camera men/women looking to see which celebs showed up. If he wanted privacy for Cameron Diaz to feed him popcorn (like a servant), he should have stayed home and watched the game w/ her and some close friends. A-rod's a great athlete (HOF stats, even if he doesn't get into the HOF for the roids scandal), but like some other athletes who know nothing else besides baseball from an early age, he's also a big baby who never grew up; imo he's a good example of arrested development.
