Playing the Field: A-Rod spends Game 1 of ALCS flirting with two blondes and a ref gets knocked out

Former WWE wrestler Torrie Wilson will likely be strapping A-Rod in the sharp-shooter tonight. And yes, he will enjoy it.

For those questioning Alex Rodriguez’ testicular fortitude this October, know this – the guy has brass ones. Small and steroid-laden, but made of brass nonetheless.

The New York Post reported this morning that during Game 1 of the ALCS last Saturday, A-Rod spent the better part of the ballgame flirting with two blonde girls in the stands at Yankee Stadium. According to the Post report, A-Rod was eyeing them down for a while and then had a ballboy toss a baseball to them with a message written on it. The message: “Can I get your numbers?”

Normally, this is a fine act. But there are several things wrong here.

1. A-Rod is currently the biggest joke in sports, batting .130 this postseason, and was several days removed from being pinch hit for by a bald journeyman who made him look like the chump of chumps. You made have heard about this.

2. Because of this there are cameras on him 24/7.

3. It’s the ALC – friggin’- S. Save this stuff for a Monday night home game in April against the Royals (I’m sure the talent quality in the expensive seats drops considerably – but STILL).

4. He is currently dating former WWE wrestler Torrie Wilson, who is more than capable of an Elin Nordegren-level domestic incident. Doesn’t A-Rod know that his girlfriend is one of the more competitive people in the world?

Only in Florida

Wait, this doesn’t happen every weekend in the Sunshine State?

So a ref was assaulted after making a questionable call in a youth football game and it was captured on tape. Ho-hum.
