Can’t a man gamble in peace? Apparently that’s not possible if your name is Alex Rodriguez. A-Rod might be the most hated-on sports figure who is a sure-fire Hall-of-Famer in the history of all sports. He catches more hate than LeBron, Tiger Woods and Lance Armstrong. At least those three can gamble in peace.
Reports have surfaced on the internet that A-Rod spent time in Pennsylvania casino a week ago while rehabbing his injured knee with Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Normally, this shouldn’t be a big deal, but for A-Rod, it’s news as he’s already set to meet with MLB this week over his involvement in illegal high stakes poker games.
The Yankees aren’t concerned about the slugger, a Yankees source told the Daily News, “Since when is it illegal to go to a casino?”
A-Rod has said that he went to the casino only to have dinner and called the report exactly what it is, “laughable.”
To be frank, the whole investigation of A-Rod is laughable. Nobody should care if Mr. Rodriguez wants to spend some of his hundreds of millions in a casino enjoying himself. A-Rod catches more than his fare share of flack for his performance on the field, for women he dates and now for the casinos he visits and the poker games he partakes in, when does it end? He even get’s booed when playing in triple A.
No wonder A-Rod loves playing poker and gambling so much, it’s probably the only time he can expect to catch at least one break.
