You might remember a former Yankees player named Alex Rodriguez. He was sort of the "sleazy villain" antithesis of Derek Jeter.

You might remember a former Yankees player named Alex Rodriguez. He was sort of the "sleazy villain" antithesis of Derek Jeter.

Like, the way that baseball journalists' faces light up as they rush to hug Jeter when he enters the room - yeah, they'd do the opposite to A-Rod, like spit at him or turn the music up on their walkmen really loud when he tried to talk to them.

A-Rod been's sitting out of baseball for a while now, do to some trouble with the law. But those days are behind him.

So, that's over. Don't expect to hear anything more about this.
