We Are Going to Burn That Shitbag

THE BRONX IS BOOING

The fact is, there may never be an uglier welcome awaiting an athlete than the one that’s in store for Alex Rodriguez whenever it happens. New York sports fans don’t like it when athletes don’t embrace them (even if it takes a while for the fans to extend the bear-hug arms too, as was the case here). But they REALLY don’t like being scorned. Put the two together, and factor everything else that’s been in play with A-Rod from the moment his acquisition was announced on Valentine’s Day 2004 …

Well. It’s going to be something else, put it that way.

It’s going to be right up there with the way Denis Potvin was greeted at Madison Square Garden every time he stepped on the ice there after Feb. 25, 1979, the night Potvin broke Ulf Nilsson’s ankle. That obscene Potvin chant that still survives at the Garden is one of the great New York traditions of all time, given that we’ll soon be sneaking up on 29 years since the incident in question … and 20 years since Potvin’s retirement. And yet, given the nature of the character and the betrayal involved, would it surprise anyone if a similar chant involving A-Rod won’t still be working its way around the New Yankee Stadium when it celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2034?

No matter where he ends up, A-Hole’s gotta show up for the All Star Game… and we’ll be waiting….

And loaded up with Duracells.
