In Response to Kevin's Post...

I don't care about what A-Rod does. 
At all. 
Is he a model citizen? Probably Not.
Is he a fantastic baseball player? Yep
What is he paid to do? Play Baseball.

Us NY fans have been spoiled by the combination of great ball players and great people. In recent years, we've experienced Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams, Andy Pettitte, Mo, and Jorge, all great players who are devoted to helping the community and having a positive influence on people. Here is the harsh reality of the sporting world, not all players are model citizens. Jose Canseco, John Rocker, Curt Schilling, Scott Boras, and Barry Bonds are just a few examples of these jerks that populate professional sports today. In the NFL you see people like TO, Michael Vick, and Plaxico Burress who just seem to have no regard for anybody except themselves. A-Rod can probably be thrown into the same crowd, simply because of the mistakes he has made. I don't really think that A-Rod is a jerk, but just plain stupid.

Kevin talked about A-Rod's divorce, his situation with Madonna, his cheating, his steroid use, and his feuding with the captain. A-Rod is 32 years old and he is human. Of course he is going to make mistakes in his life. But honestly, how many people go through messy divorces out there? How many people get caught in a bad situation? Am I endorsing any of this behavior? Not a chance, and I don't think that he should be allowing himself to be subjected to these things, but A-Rod should not be regarded as some godly humanitarian just because he can hit the hide off a baseball. Unfortunately, all of these problems that many people have in life are shown to the world because he is in the media circus of NY. He isn't the only jerk out there. These people are so quick to blame the guy for something just to get a quick buck and essentially ruin the guy's life. It's almost as pathetic as these decisions A-Rod has been known to make.

Again, I want to stress that I am not endorsing any of these jerks behaviors. I think that A-Rod has an obligation to his fans and to his endorsers to promote a positive image. He is a role model for many people, and he needs to cut the crap. But seriously, who cares about A-Rod's private life. Will he be in the news for the idiotic choices he makes? Absolutely. But to be honest, I couldn't care less.
