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.

What a chump?

I wonder when he is going to get it.  A-Rod you are paid by the American people.  The reason why you make so much money, is because the American public thiks you are an entetainment piece, which you are.  If you don't want the attention, don't go to the Yankees, don't get caught using horse steroids, don't accept 30 million a year deals, don't date movie stars, and don't act like a sissy so the media/public can drop bombs on you.  Get over yourself, and entertain us in some other way that doesn't make you look like a giant moose knuckle.  Seriously bro, you are turning into Britney Spears, Lohan, and Paris Hilton.  Soon we are going to catch you with a open skirt, spread eagle of your girl parts.

What a douche-nozzle!  You're a Superstar athlete at the most-viewed TV event EVER with your actress-girlfirend and you think you're not gonna get shown on TV.  If you don't want to be shown, then stay at home and watch on TV with the millions of us that don't have the $ or connections to be so lucky to attend. 

It's a public event, you tool.

Perhaps T.V. networks should be banned from showing any fan at a game. Maybe they should stop showing Yankee games on T.V.

He would've done it himself, but his arms were tired from stroking his ego.

This tool should know he is at the biggest event in the world and that there are litterally thousands of cameras watching everybody!  If he is embarrassed of the shot, shouldn't he have known everyone is watching every little move they make!  Boo friggen Hoo A-ROD everybody already hated you we just got some more ammunition to fire at you now.

I completeley agree.  He wants a picture to be taken when he looks good, no other time.  If he didn't want to be seen, than keep your a** home, particulary in Arlington, a team you basically boned over to go play for the Evil Empire.  He is such a D-Bag!!
