The rare official silence of Alex Rodriguez

Lost in the briefcase-kicking, table-slamming, expletive-flying exit by Alex Rodriguez at his drug suspension arbitration hearing Wednesday was the history he made by choosing not to personally defend himself. Though often describing himself as fighting for his "life" and fighting for his "legacy," Rodriguez became the first player not to testify at his arbitration hearing since the Joint Drug Agreement was collectively bargained in 2002.

Boxer Tor Hamer quit on his stool after the 3rd round tonight (this morning in Macau) despite not having any visible injuries, and generally winning the first two rounds (and Hamer has a history of quitting in fights). This displeased Lou Dibella, his promoter.

And this is how Lou responded.
