As we argued yesterday, Ryan Dempster beaning Alex Rodriguez might have been a turning point for the New York Yankees and their fans, or at the very least, an absolute maximum of fan hatred that will only improve, however slightly. Something we missed, though, was A-Rod’s interview after the game, where he made fun of himself. This is usually the best way to get fans on your side, and it has usually been the thing that A-Rod is worst at. So, progress.
Fast-forward to the 40-second mark.
Seriously, I got a legitimate, hearty chuckle out of that! Well done, A-Rod. Now, if you could have done that a couple years ago… maybe you would have a had a chance.
