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.

Someone please explain the Cameron Diaz thing to me, because I don't get it. I don't. She's not hot. She's built like a 13-year-old. She looks about twenty years older than she really is. She actually looks dirty.

What a tool.  Talk about a huge ego.  I did not see President Bush or Condoleeza Rice complaining about being shown on TV.  But oh yeah, they weren't having a Hollywood past her prime starlet shoving popcorn in their pie holes.  Come on ARod, are you serious you can't do better than Cameron Diaz?  She is alright, but there has got to be better babes to hook up with.

It was a bad coincidence, nothing more.

Unfortunately, and as usual, A-Rod will make it worse because he is the most thinned skin, egotistical, vain person in sports.

If he's going to get upset, then he should just feed himself.

Every penny this guy earns is a waste of money. Glad its the Yankees shelling it out. If they werent paying this loser they might actually get a couple players who earn the money they pay this jerk. He would have to pay me to play on my team, then I would forget to tell him where to show up because he hardly ever shows up anyways! Ride off into the sunset A-rod and take some of the yankees money with you. You can have Madonna to if you want ok?

What a knucklehead! A-rod had to know the camera would eventually find him at this game. if you dont want to be shown on camera, stay at home and watch the game. Thats how I handle it.
