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.

Random celebrity shot my a$$. He is a celebrity. That is why the cameraman took the shot. Random? Really?

A-Rod furious at Super Bowl candid shot

Aroid is getting tiresome. I wish he would just go away. Whether its whinning about trivial matters like this or bush league things he does on the field. For a possible first ballot hall of famer, he should take some lessons on class and tact from the guy the plays next to him. If you didn't want to be seen on tv, stay home!

Aroid...Grow the F up already!!

Neither person is married, what's the big deal.  Looked to me like 2 rich people on a FUN date.  If A-Rod was upset its only because some others gals he has on the line saw it.  Get real folks, feeding each other on a legit date is just FUN, nothing to be ashamed of unless .........

Maybe he should've thought of the fact that celebrity couples tend to get candid shots during sports games before he had Diaz feed him

Maybe A-Rod was worried about being caught with a Hispanic woman like Ms. Diaz...he was worried that two Hispanic people in such a close proximity might get them deported and didn't want to alert INS...

...maybe...

What a TULIP!!  We all knew Gay-rod was a flamer, but crying like this?!  If he didn't want to be filmed or photographed being the toolbox he is, then he should have stayed home with all his Unichs.  All he was missing in that photograph was his handbag...loser.  It's a shame the Bankees finally gave him a ring.  Fade away, you clown.  Take that giant horse-head of a girlfriend with you.
