A-Rod or A-Hole?

Posted on November 16, 2007. Filed under: General Posts | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

A-Rod has had his people leak the information about a possible contract negotiation breakthrough with the Yankees. As reported by ESPN A-Rod has negotiated a 10 year 250 million dollar deal. Here is a quote by Mr Steinbrenner talking the hardship faced by A-Rod to take this deal. “There are a few cynics who say, ‘Well, he really couldn’t get this there,’ ” Steinbrenner said. “Trust me, he would have gotten probably more. He is making a sacrifice to be a Yankee, there’s no question. … He showed what was really in his heart and what he really wanted.”

The way I see it is the massive A-Rod ego couldn’t even let Barry have his day in the spot light. Even if the spot light is the blindingly bright light of Justice.

Question for the campers. Who’s the bigger A-Hole? Barry or A-Rod??????

In my most humbled of opinions, the simple answer is this: Barry. Why? Well, let’s take a quick look at the simplest of factors…the names so commonly used that there are in this post an amazing 7 times….A-Rod and Barry.

First we’ll look at A-Rod. As we all know, it is short for “Alexander Emmanuel Rodriguez”. Wow…now that’s a proud name. Alexander (like the Great), Emmanuel (like the savior), and Rodriguez (like the Mexican). Now immagine you had to spend most of your life with your name being reduced to something like “A-Rod”. I know that if I was out to dinner with Cynthia Scurtisand (Mr. Rodriguez’s wife, for the “campers” who don’t know) and someone woman called me a rod, I would assume her name is Cinthya Untburger and shorten her name the same way she has mine. To me, the hardships alone should be worth 25 million a year from G-Sti.

Now, let’s look at the name Barry, which is short for “Barry Lamar Bonds”. That’s right folks, Lamar. Judging from that name, it’s easy to know why he is called “Barry”. It’s just so easy. It’s his name. His mommy and daddy named him that. We don’t call him B-Bon. It’s just Barry. Granted, when I think of Barry, I immagine the fat ass plumber who lives down the street and hits on the 3rd grade girls as they get off the bus, but the hardships are not enough to bring about the response above.

So consider this…if you are out with your loved one, and someone comes up to you and calls you “A Rod”, you’d kick their bottom. Now, if the same person called you “Barry”, you would most likely correct them and move on with your life.

Thus, Barry is a bigger A-Hole.

Thank you, and goodnight.

My hat is off to you sir. What a well written and powerful message. You seem to speak Winter Camper. You almost sounded like Wilderness Doug during one of his good rants. You had the facts! check. More facts than anyone else. check You used the word humble and yet still gave just a hint of talking down to everyone. check. Articulate yet still sarcastic at the same time. check, check , check, check!!!

I think we have another honorary Winter Camper!
