There's a special place in The Suckosphere™ for athletes who get into the kind of mess K-Rod or, Francisco Rodriquez as he will be referred to by lawyers, is in now. The reason for this, as if it even needs to be said, is that these ass-clowns get paid what is technically know as an “Ass-Ton” of money to play a game for a living and when they screw it up, it automatically makes them bigger a-holes than the person who just cut you off on the freeway, the guy who brings the barbeque chicken sandwich with him to eat ON THE PLANE and that asshole who is talking very loud on his blu-tooth phone thing.
Well, maybe not the blu-tooth guy. Anyway, here's what this K-Rod did in case your not someone who is into
In full view of teammates, teammate’s wives and teammate’s kids, he beat the shit out of his kids’ grandfather so much so he was arrested. Look, I’m all for elderly abuse and all but please let’s confine it to private settings! Oh yeah, then after being suspended for two days by the Mets (mixed message re: elderly abuse!), he comes back to reveal that he needs surgery on his hand (injured because he punched his kids’ granddad with his pitching hand) and is out for the year. The Mets are gonna do everything they can now to not pay him the 11 MILLION dollars they owe him for this year, which includes spending $10,999,999 on lawyers if it means they can get out of it.
So way to go K-Rod, nice job jeopardizing your remaining $27 Million contract to punch and old man. And welcome to the WhatSucksBlog A-hole Athlete Hall of Fame along with Plaxico Burress, Ben Roethlisberger, Michael Vick and whoever I’m forgetting who can’t just play a game and get paid crazy money for it.
By the way, this also goes a long way to prove my theory that anyone with a nickname that starts with a “K”, is a douchebag.
