-- "Fight for your Right (to Party)," The Beastie Boys
So Alex Rodriguez is back in the news. But then again, that's pretty much how it's going to be for a long, long time. If Rodriguez flexes a muscle someone is going to be there with a camera phone and a Twitter account to get the "news" out there.
Life in the digital age... Sigh!
Nevertheless, Rodriguez worked out with the Yankees on Tuesday morning and then had the displeasure of sitting in front of a firing squad known as the U.S. sporting press. There, the star-crossed third baseman answered question after question (no follow-ups, please) regarding his ambiguous experimentation with performance-enhancing drugs obtained by a "cousin" in the Dominican Republic.
Yeah, it was a scene, man.
Though Rodriguez's story and answers had more holes than an old sweater, he sat there and took "his medicine," as he said without irony on Tuesday afternoon.
"It was really amateur hour. I mean, it was two guys," Rodriguez said. "We couldn't ask anyone. We didn't want to ask anyone."
"I knew we weren't taking Tic Tacs."
