A Rod Hits 600th Home Run

“As the ball took flight, arcing toward center field, Alex Rodriguez jogged toward first base with his hands outstretched, his palms up. It is the universal body language for “What did I do?” but Rodriguez knew exactly what he had just done. His chase for 600 career home runs had lasted 12 games and 46 at-bats, but it was finally over.”

Good for Alex Rodriguez. It’s a large monkey off his back. How would you feel if you’ve been one of the league’s best home run hitters for years, admittedly took steroids, and didn’t make it to 600. 12-game, 46-at bat homer slump. Pathetic! Embarrassing!

But now, the cheater made a milestone. The cheater made a milestone. Everybody clap for the cheater. Hooray! Hooray!

There has to be a funny tshirt idea in this story somewhere. Just gotta be.
