Even if you think this - you don't say it if you are a reporter. Right?
That Jerry, "He's so PHONY" See, it's a compliment!
Josh speaks from the hip. He doesn’t measure his words and he certainly doesn’t overthink things.
Well, he's certainly insufferable, but the jury's still out on the "human being" part.
I remember driving home with my wife, Cynthia, after a game and telling her, 'I just don't see the light. Where is the light? What am I in this for?' I would have never gone to Texas if they had told me, 'Alex, it's going to be you and 24 kids.' Never.
what precisely has he done that folks find so offensive?
Hmm. This is dangerously close to synonymous with \"#######\".
If he comes off as an insufferable a$$ AND is a complete phony, does that make him, in reality, a really good and cool guy?
You might be the only person here who has a problem with honesty.
but I've never heard of him being nasty or obnoxious.
In the unlikely event that Alex Rodriguez did not know where he stood with the upper management of the New York Yankees, he surely knows it now.
...We all hope he's going to act like a Yankee and do the best he can to live up to it. How about that?"
still not on the scale of beating up a man with no hands.
Not really. Crude and probably extremely annoying, but still not on the scale of beating up a man with no hands.
In any case, Cobb was a mean, nasty, deliberately cruel prick. Ruth was just an insensitive, self-centered prick. Pricks nonetheless, but Ruth was likeable unlike Cobb or Jordan
"Insufferable human being": Gives too little access to the press
"Completely phony": Not quotable
having his image burnished by a fawning press
On a team with Jeter, how can Arod be the complete phony? Is there a person on this planet with as cultivated image as Jeter? This is a guy who sends his entourage to pick up girls so that he isn't seen failing. This is the guy who has never said an off the cuff remark in twenty years in the spotlight. He confiscates cell phone at gatherings so that nothing untoward gets released.Has he ever shown a genuine emotional reaction in his life?
He clearly wants to be the most boring famous athlete ever.
He doesn’t measure his words and he certainly doesn’t overthink things.
