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.

He totally text messages my friend all the time...while he is in other relationships. He is Tigerlike...couldn't agree more.  i wish some of these guys would be exposed so that people could see them for what they are.

A-Clod may (or may not be) a future Hall of Famer, but he is lacking as a human being. He is a cheater a la Eldrick Woods and a poor sport. And those are his good points.

Just like most famous people of privelage A Rod has numerous women in  various cities that he lies to and being shown on TV blows his cover.  FACT

Cameron Diaz is a nasty, greasy, slimy, disgusting skank.  They deserve each other.

Take a look at the video:  A-Rod never takes his eyes off the jumbotron, because there is a 60-yard image of Cameron feeding him!  I find it kind of disingenuous that he now claims to be enraged about the whole thing, when he was sponging it all in when it happened!

A-Rod furious at Super Bowl candid shot

I be ashamed to, being caught with Cameron Diaz in public. She is no that great looking, along the lines of a Uma Thurman. So A-Rod doesn't want the cameras on him in an embarrassing moment. So why did he have his post steroid interview with Peter Gammons. Should the cameras go elsewhere when he commits his usual 30 errors (here's a groundball to A-Rod, oh look...there is a hot dog vendor, and the runner is safe at first. Get real A-Rod, you are a well known public figure at a real known public event. It wasn't like you were having sex with her. Then that might be an invasion of privacy. Haven't heard anything from the Diaz camp on this. He was probably mad because he told another lady friend that he was home sick with the flu that night. Grow up A-Rod, you are starting to give people that perception that the "A" doesn't stand for Alex anymore.

Could it be that A-Tool was more embarrassed because he knows his teammate (Jeter) has something on his arm 10 x more fine than that has-been beauty Camoran Diaz, in Mika?
Could be?

I don't get it.  What's wrong with the picture?  A-rod doesn't look bad.  Cameron Diaz on the other hand, looks like his grandma.  Maybe that's it.

Yeah, I never really have thought Diaz as an attractive person.  It probably started with her boy hair cut in something about mary.  The same hair cut with the sticky gel in it, haha
