The A-Rod Floodgates

March 23, 2009

On top of all the news that recently came out about A-rod, we now have this hilariously ridiculous story from The Sporting News:

Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez was more than a customer of Kristin Davis’ high-priced prostitution ring — he dated the former Manhattan madam too, according to an explosive report.

This guy, words can’t say how awful this guy is at maintaining a good public image. I mean this guy must think he is invincible from all bad press (even though he has proven time and again he isn’t). First the cheating on his wife in Toronto, then his wife wearing that FU shirt to a game, then the Madonna thing, then the opting out thing during the Red Sox World Series win, then the Jeter drama, then the steroids, then “Details” atricle, then the debacle over his asking to remove the Madonna song reference in the “Details” article, and now this. Whew. I’m tired just typing this. Imagine living it.

But in order to do all of this stuff and not think that any, if not all, of it was going to become public means one of two things. 1. You planned it all and want to be made to look like a badass who doesn’t give a shit about anyone or anything or 2. You are the dumbest person alive and have hired a terrible PR rep. I’m going with number 2.

I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a player going from the highest paid athlete in history to the most laughed at and ridiculed athlete in such a short time. I guess it’s just another record A-rod is setting.
