I don’t know, if Derek Jeter were having a fundraiser to benefit his “Family Foundation,” my guess is it probably wouldn’t be a night of gambling at a club owned by a notoriously pimped-out rapper. And then there’s A-Rod, who feted his own do-gooder organization with a poker tournament at Jay-Z’s Club 40-40 last night. Okay, so he’s no genius at the art of political theater. But at least he’s saying the right things, to wit:
My choice is to play for the New York Yankees. It’s my choice. I love being a Yankee. I believe we’re going to win with me being a Yankee.
Alright. We can now return to our discussion of how the Sox are the new Yanks, spending-wise. Enjoy!
