I’ll have more to say on the latest episode of As A-Rod Turns tomorrow, and I don’t really intend to waste time sifting through all of the nonsense every columnist with a publisher puts out there, but this article from CBS Sports’ Gregg Doyel is just too much to let go. Obviously there’s the head-desk worthy premise of “everyone should ignore this topic I’m about to write a whole column about, ya’ll,” but the media in general lacking in self-awareness is hardly a new thing. That said, I did find this to be a particularly amusing entry into the genre:
And [A-Rod's] not worth the attention we keep giving him. The New York tabloids have sent reporters to his minor-league games. Here I am somewhere above Albuquerque, and ESPN is probably about to talk about him some more. And look at me, writing about Agate-Rod from my seat in row 29.
If only we could start A-Rod’s five-year clock right now.
