ARod WTF?: AskSpoFi: ARod's baseball IQ? [more inside]

posted by geekyguy to navel gazing at 04:19 PM - 10 comments

In a 60 Minutes interview(982k .wmv file) ARod shows Katie Couric his Memorabilia Room and points to a couple of MVP Awards and situated between them is something he refers to as "The Babe Ruth Award"1,2 and he adds, "it is for the most home runs in Major League Baseball". Why would ARod have an unengraved trophy on his shelf and then incorrectly identify its significance?

I'll put my Ron Jeremy Award in the attic.

I'll put my Ron Jeremy Award in the attic. If you can do that without using your hands, keep it on the shelf.

actually, he's right. it's the Babe Ruth Homerun Award. it's just not something handed out by the BWAA. i guess Alex just left out the "Homerun" part of the award name (i don't know for sure, i'm not getting any audio with the video).

because he is stuck up and conceited I assume that you are eating a big plate of crow at this point, so that's why you haven't come back to say "Oops!" goddam: That is the award that he was pointing at, and he doesn't say "Homerun". So, it seems that ARod's baseball IQ is perfectly fine, but those that immediately assumed he was wrong/lying/stupid may be "challenged"...

and he adds, "it is for the most home runs in Major League Baseball". So ARod's right, all he forgot to say was.."each year". Nice work, Goddam.
