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.

arod is such a whiny little bitch. he is a famous pro athlete at the biggest football game played all year, which by the way is a PUBLIC event. if he does not want people seeing him do something then he shouldnt do it. thats like pulling your junk out in public then asking why everyone is staring at you. a very good ball player he is but a likeable guy he is not. get over yourself you egomaniac.

Everytime you hit a home run this season we'll black out the picture just for you ok A Fraud

Can't believe this cellophane jerk doesn't want a camera on him with a hottie like Diaz yet he takes the time to stare himself down in the mirror. Biggest fraud in baseball. To bad you didn't choke on that popcorn when they caught ya' being hand fed like a 3 year old

No, it's pretty easy actually.  You catch, hit and throw a ball for a living.  Get over yourself.

All the time he has spent in the league and never more than 13 homers I believe.
"All the time" is four seasons, with never fewer than 13 homers.  Still a big spike, but he did average a home run a little better than once every 27 ABs prior to last year and changed his approach last season, taking a LOT more pitches.  98 unintentional walks for a guy who used to get himself out on pitches outside the strike zone.

What the f is wrong with this guy?  You're hot girlfriend is feeding you at the big game; wow, I think I would go nuts to.  I always kind of liked A Rod even through the roids stuff.  But now I can understand why people hate this clown.  Hey there A Rod i'll trade for your life any day, quit whining and just play ball you little woman, you are a disgrace to the Y chromosme everywhere.  Next time just stay home and dress in those fancy heels you like to wear.
