Hunting Alex Rodriguez for sport has been America’s favorite pastime for nearly a decade; and I’ll admit, he often presents a tempting target. His fling with Madonna alone reaffirmed my belief in God’s raucous sense of humor. And then of course this was like stumbling on a vein of pure comedy gold.
But Blogland is all in a self-righteous uproar today over A-Rod’s visit to a Maryland high school to talk to the students about steroid use. The word “hypocrite” is being tossed back and forth across the Internets like a beach ball at a Dodgers game. And this time it’s not fair. Rent a ladder and get down from your four-story horses, people.
