A-Rod just can’t seem to get out of the news. However, the problem this
time is that after a back and forth between he, his brother, and the Yankees’ front office, Rodriguez is finally opting for the surgery that will put him out of action for ten weeks. So,
the question is, do you think A-Rod has a real crush or just a
man-crush on Jeter?
that this question ultimately forces one to examine the intricacies of
a non-romantic man-love between two of the best players in the game
today. Because if RSBS knows anything, it knows what it means to harbor such a serious crush.
whether that crush pertains to a lowly Joe Six-Pack fan like myself
longing for the return of the game that moves him so or an
honesty-challenged third baseman’s relationship with his revered elder
statesman shortstop, the important thing to remember is: this stuff matters.
Alex. He just cannot catch a break. While he has been off
gallivanting and spinning different stories relating to his hip and his
just-won’t-go-away-steroids issue, his arch-nemesis/biggest proponent
has been looking good in the stars and stripes uniform, helping his
team edge out Canada in an unprecedented early March nail-biter that got this fan (me) up on his feet, proud to be a US American.
Three cheers for Derek Jeter!
And I ain’t no Yankees fan, folks. Everyone knows this. But seeing
Jeter captain the U.S. team and leave yesterday’s game early with grace
and style and poise… I mean, WOW! How can one not have a
man-crush on this guy?!? Sure, Jeter is no Pujols… but one cannot
deny that the man certainly knows how to woo the masses with his sweet
swing and smooth air of class.
Can I get a “U-S-A, U-S-A!”?
let us not ignore Mr. Krause’s hidden agenda here. It seems as if his
question was meant to lead me down that winding road of slander,
forcing me to acknowledge and perhaps sling unfounded accusations that
there may be some hidden homoerotic tension between A-Rod and the
We all know about A-Rod’s sexual exploits.
And when you can land ladies like that, I think it is pretty clear what
his true feelings for Jeter are: man-lust, man-crush, man-envy.
at Derek Jeter — the perfect storm of athletic ability and aesthetic
allure — it is impossible for any self-respecting, hard-working, apple
pie-eating male to not man-love and man-crush on good ‘ol number 2.
Especially when he wears the “U.S.A.” across his chest.
Don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.
