A ROD SAY IT ISN’T SO….. WELL, I GUESS THAT DOESN’T MEAN MUCH DOES IT.

A Rod PED

All through the years, I’ve endured the A Rod haters. I always have given him the benefit of the doubt and oh those post season performances were brutal to suffer through.

I was so happy sitting on my couch with my newborn as Mariano Rivera threw the last strike in the 2009 World Series. First for myself because I had superstitiously put the burden of a Yankees victory on my daughter.

“If they win she’s going to have a great life, if they don’t she’ll have a good life….” Yeah I know that’s how ridiculous we men can be. But as I was in the hospital watching the Yankees dispatch the Angels (who have the Yankees number), I was convinced it was my daughter Sofia and not Derek Jeter, C.C. Sabathia and the rest who’d done it but my soon to be born daughter. And back to back games no less.

But I digress.

I was happy to see Alex Rodriguez soaking in the champagne.

Now to think that it could have been partially due to performance enhancing drugs is a let down. As it should be for Red Sox fans with respect to Manny Ramirez and…. well I won’t cast aspersions.

Bottom line is if it turns out that he was reckless enough and deceitful enough to get back on the juice or whatever it was he feel he needed to take to cheat his way to better performance, then good riddance to him and, like Lance Armstrong, Barry Bonds and the rest, strike his name from the record books.
