Yankee fans love to hate A-rod, but I am proud to say that I am not one of them.
Still, one would think with the way the Yankees are tearing it up on the baseball field right now, just won their 10th in a row for crying out loud, that fans would be content but no, not here in the Big Apple.
I guess that is why I should have been less surprised when I received this email from a very good, friend who happens to be a diehard Yankees fan?
Let me first stat that the writer of the above email is a dear friend whom I adore, but that doesn’t change that he is a hater-fan.
Fact is the Yankees are winning as a team; and fact is A-rod is a big part of the team.
Is he the same player he was five seasons ago?
No, but unlike the majority of us, A-rod’s daily job consists of physical activity and it exposes things that the rest of us take for granted.
In a sense, you have to remember that pro-athletes have no choice but to wear their ages on their sleeve; and that is a luxury the rest of us can cover at work for decades longer.
If Yankee fans could stop being jealous and angry over A-rod’s salary they might realize a few things.
- A-rod is just like the rest of us except, including the Yankee fans find a reason to blame him for everything.(…)
