A-Rod Involved In Ticket Fix Scandal, Who Cares?

Posted: May 30, 2011 by Keith Stone in Alex Rodriguez, crime and punishment

Everyone is up in arms about this NYPD ticket-fixing investigation. Fair enough. Just because you’re buddies with a cop, doesn’t mean your speeding ticket should get “lost.” Then, Alex Rodriguez emerged as one of the celebrities named in the scandal (along with George Steinbrenner and Jay-Z) for speeding on the West Side Highway and of course landed in the headlines in every newspaper.

Despite the fact that A-Rod has seen his share of tabloid stories from Madonna to Kristin Davis, can we just let him get away with this, Daily News and Post? The dude has 600 home runs and led the Yanks to the World Series last year. Plus, he’s tagging Cameron Diaz. When he’s selling drugs to schoolchildren, make sure he’s on the front cover. If he’s not, and his biggest crime is getting a $100 fine waived because he’s a fucking megastar and shouldn’t be made to bother with such trifling matters when he’s trying to win a Title for the City, give him a break and let him concentrate on hitting home runs. A-Rod can hit me with his car going 85 and as long as he got to the Stadium on time, I’d be fine with it.
