Reportedly Alex Rodriguez’s nickname in the Yankees clubhouse after gaining 15 pounds in the 2005 offseason. The report states that A-Rod continued use of steroids after 2003 and possibly as far back as high school. Also alleged in Selena Roberts’ upcoming book is that A-Rod is hated at Hooter’s where he tips the minimum 15 percent. I’m not. making. this. up.
Steve Springer, formerly of the Los Angeles Times, blogs about the “Beat L.A.” chant in his debut at SportsFanLive.com.
This chant is one of my most hated things in life. Something about it really gets under my skin, even to the point where I wont participate in chants that have the same rhythm. I promise you that you will NEVER hear me chanting “Gi-ants-suck!” I never have and never will. The Japanese and Korean chants at the WBC games made me sure we, as a people, can come up with more creative chants. Anyway I think this article sums it up pretty well.
I feel the same way about the Boston sux- Yankees Suck thing… eventhough I do have a strong distaste for the Yankees… A Very Strong Distaste
