ESPN Going Ahead With A-Rod WBC Ads

Friday, February 13, 2009

Now this all makes sense. Why did A-Rod decide to go with ESPN as his interviewer following the news that he did steroids? Well because ESPN is using him to promote their coverage of the World Baseball Classic. I honestly wish I was kidding. ESPN and ESPN2 are carrying 23 games of the Baseball tournament this March, and along with Jorge Cantu, Ichiro and Derek Jeter, A-Rod will be one of their marquee names in advertisements starting this Saturday....

It is certainly possible that these ads were long in the making, but even so, don't you think ESPN would have pulled the Rodriguez ones? Seems far too convenient if you ask me. Oh, and tell me that quote they used for him, doesn't piss you off even more? I'm just about done with Baseball.


So I guess people aren't too upset anymore that he is playing for the Dominican Republic and not the USA?

Of course they should use him to promote. People will tune in to see his first action since the big news.

And Jorge Cantu? Seriously?

His country? He was born in America.

I hope the baseball facility they named after him at The U will be soon nicknamed The Juice Box.

"National pastime. International stars."

International stars... from the United States.

Atleast we don't have to hear about his steroids anymore thanks to Bret-- Oh, shit. This is never going to end.

It's all part of the master plan: The Big Contract. Steroids. Playing for the Dominican.

Then, during the 2014 All-Star Game, ARod will pull out a steel chair and beat Bud Selig senseless. Greatest Face Turn Ever: the crowd will eat it up.

"The best 'roids come from the DR!"

What, this isn't a caption contest?

And I take back my ESPN as Leviathan comment from a few weeks back, apparently each slimy tentacle does know what the others are doing.
