I was reading the NY Post when I came across this article about a law suit against Roberto Alomar. Alomar is being sued by his ex-girlfriend Ilya Dall because apparently when they were dating, Alomar had AIDS and was having unprotected sex with her. However, the suit also states that Alomar did not know he had AIDS at the time, and also, his ex-girlfriend tested negative for the disease. She's suing for emotional distress. Is it just me, or is trying to cash in on an AIDS patient completely heartless? I didn't know that Alomar had AIDS, which is awful news, but what's even worse is that this woman is trying to sue him for it.
The suit gets really weird when Dall claims that Alomar had told her he was raped by two Mexican men in New Mexico after a ball game. I don't know if this is true or not, since this woman doesn't strike me as a reliable source, but it does remind me the importance of one of my life long rules: never visit New Mexico.
In other news, the A-Rod fallout is still spreading with every columnist, journalist, and free lance writer giving their opinion on what he should do, what he should have said, what he should not have said, and so on. Personally, I think they should all shut up. I'm not really sure why all these people feel the need to offer their advice. It wasn't asked for, and I for one really could care less what they would do in this situation. He admitted to it, that's all I wanted. Now, the biggest issue people are jumping on is that when asked if he used from 2001 - 2003, instead of saying "Yes" he said "That's pretty accurate." Is this really all there is to write about? However the award for most pointless article related to A-Rod goes to Julie Kay, Lorena Mongelli, and Dan Mangan for this NY Post article. The start of the article reads:
"It was back to business as usual for Alex Rodriguez yesterday - with the Yankees superstar acting as if massive headlines about his confession of past steroid use were no big thing."
The article then goes on to say that A-Rod went to the gym, then went to his ex-wife's home, and later to his real estate office. What exactly did they expect A-Rod to do? Confine himself to his home, and never come out again? He should be going to the gym, and taking care of business. Spring training starts in 2 days. All the article shows is that some or all of Julie Kay, Lorena Mongelli, and Dan Mangan followed A-Rod around, and then wrote an article about his day. Great work guys.
