Word on the street is that A-Rod did not appreciate his little Superbowl cameo the other night:

“He really went ballistic — thinking the cameraman was out to get them in a paparazzi-like shot. … That’s so crazy,” a source told the paper. “Anyone who knows anything about producing a live sports event — especially something as huge as the Super Bowl — would know that those celebrity shots are purely random. A-Rod, of all people, should know that.”

Sounds like he really got his man-thong in a bunch. Poor guy, caught on film being fed popcorn buy a once-hot-now-kinda-plasticy girlfriend while watching the Superbowl from a luxury box. How does a man tolerate such things? It’s easy to see how something like this could dull a man’s lipgloss. In the interest of fairness to Mr. Rod, I have compiled a list of atrocities that do not make him “go ballistic” just to show that’s it’s only the severity of PopcornGate that provoked him:

  • Bushleague baseball tactics like slapping the ball out of a pitcher’s hand or yelling “I got it” while an opposing fielder is trying to make a catch
  • A married man with a baby at home being caught with a somewhat manly stripper
  • A player caught using steroids
  • A player doing a photo shoot showing him kissing himself in the mirror

See, he doesn’t sweat the small stuff…
