A-Rod feeding frenzy

Alex Rodriguez
There might be no better embodiment of the weirdness of Alex Rodriguez's public perception than what happened during the first quarter of the Super Bowl.

While showing notable people in the crowd, the cameras caught A-Rod in a luxury box, as girlfriend Cameron Diaz fed him popcorn (hat tip to Twitter follower @carlosolin for the screen grab). And it was ... just weird.

Here's a zillionaire Yankees superstar, at the biggest event of the year, being lovingly fed by his super-famous actress girlfriend -- that should be about as cool as cool gets, right? And A-Rod somehow manages to make even that seem awkward and unnatural.

Instead of adding to his bigshot cred, it's going to be a Saturday Night Live sketch. Because that's the relationship the American public has with Rodriguez. Deadspin.com put up the video with a headline that says it perfectly: "A-Rod eats popcorn in the most A-Rod way possible."

Announcer Joe Buck's reaction: "I'm sure Alex is thrilled we just put the camera on him at that moment."

Do you think A-Rod is practicing not choking at a big game?

All this red carpet trash at the Super Bowl is making a wimpy sceen from what used to be a hard core man's sport.  If they played outdoor at Lambeau Field, I wonder if they'd show up.  Its getting more like basketball everyday...look who's in the audience. Puke.

Regardless if it looked awkward and unnatural.  The dude is a millionaire and has Cameron Diaz feeding him snacks.  I'd trade laying on my couch drinking a guiness for that anyday of the week.  He's awkward cause he's a d-bag, thats just obvious.

The Gallo obvioulsy has a hard on for A-Rod. He's a tool, plain and simple Adam Lamber, so don't get your pretty little panties all in a twist because people make fun of your wanna be boyfriend. Giving $3.9 milion, chump change in regards to his salary, is everything but noble you dope. $3.9 million could go a loooooong way towards helping the people of Haiti, those suffering in Chili or those millions of homeless here in the U.S. $3.9 million for a univeristy that doesn't need the $3.9 million in the first place is hardly a noble act. Sorry to burst you buble gallo, but just because I don't get paid one of the largest contract salaries in the MLB, it doesn't make my life any more pathetic than this world class douchebags.

Jesus! can this man do anything  that all this losers find amusing or wrong. All of you are just jealous of a guy that make more money in a week that most of you will ever make in your pathetic life, he is good looking and  can date the woman he wants no matter how rich or famous she may be. Just SHUT UP and leave the guy have a life. I'm not a Yankees fan but I'm sick and tired of people talking BS about A-Road for not reason. Do you know that Rodriguez gave $3.9 million to the University of Miami to renovate its baseball stadium. The new facility will be named "Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field. Why anybody give him credit for this noble act.

Don’t beat yourself up over it, AES. Not everyone’s as creative and original as me.

The big deal about the picture is that it confirms he is a feminine man. Madonna referred to him as having "the heart of a poet". As an athlete, thats not what you want your image to be.
