White Sox Fans Boo Alex Rodriguez Mercilessly in His Season Debut (Video)
Imagine for a moment that your clients, your coworkers and your boss all despise you. And not just your immediate manager, either, but the guys up in corporate, too. That sounds pretty rough, doesn’t it?
Well, now imagine that you are worth about $200 million, and you can pretty much just say, “f*ck it, I’m outta here,” any time you want…but you don’t. Instead, you keep showing up, day after day after day after day.
This is what it’s like to be Alex Rodriguez right now. And when you think about it that way, he’s one messed up dude.
Yeah, sure, there’s still a lot of money left on the table, and he doesn’t just want to walk away from it. But really, is there such a drastic lifestyle change between a guy who is worth $200 million and a guy who is worth $300 million? Does it matter all that much whether you have two yachts, or three?
Well, to A-Rod, I guess the answer is yes, because he sure as hell can’t be sticking around because he loves baseball so much. After all, how could it possibly be any fun for him anymore, now that he is going to be subjected to this on a nightly basis:
That right there was A-Roid’s first at-bat of the season, and it was also his first at-bat since receiving a 211-game suspension from MLB as a result of their historic Biogenesis investigation. And if it was this bad in Chicago, playing a last place team with dwindling attendance numbers, can you imagine how bad it’s going to be when he goes to Boston?
So, um, Mr. Rodriguez, if you’re reading this, seriously, just stop. Don’t appeal this thing. Take your bags of tainted money and go home. Relax, play some Xbox—whatever. Just no more baseball. Okay?
