While I was casually surfing the web yesterday, looking for new additions for my Nike Dunk Sky Hi collection, I randomly
came across something on the Classic Kicks website.
In this note, Mr. LeRoy vents his disappointments about A-Rod and he really struck a cord in me.
As a long time believer of trying to see the good in everybody, including A-Rod this note made me think hard about this man I have defended.
With A-Rod suspended for the entire 2014 season, I have plenty of time to ponder this some more.
Here is an excerpt from Mr. LeRoy’s note, and you can click HERE to go read the rest. And trust me, if you are an A-Rod hater you will be missing out if you do not read all he has to say.
It is amazing how miscalculated his every calculated move is. And what has made him so interesting over the years, is his (completely unnecessary) attempts to be even more to America, and to see how those orchestrations backfire at every turn. If he couldn’t hit home runs, he’d be a wonderfully handsome failure. A sad guy at the end of the bar selling everything from time shares to Miami Sound Machine bootlegs to the type of people who would have had a crush on him in high school. So when you see A-Rod on television, at press conferences, on sepia-toned sets with Tom Rinaldi – Don’t be fooled – because all of this – is a carefully calculated hoax.
Read the rest of A Fan’s Notes (With Apologies To Fred Exley) and you can send Mr. LeRoy a tweet @BernieLeRoy.
