After tearfully confirming that he used a “banned substance” to enhance his playing power, New York Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez appears on the April 2008 issue of men’s style mag Details.
“We live in a world right now where everyone’s keeping score,” Rodriguez says. “And it doesn’t stop when the games end. . . . They’ve crossed over. And you have the Internet stuff, and all these phones. . . . It’s very intense.”
On a lighter note, he even admits to taking the subway after home games in New York: “I have a hoodie on, but all it takes is one person and then you’re done. But it’s great. The fans get a kick out of it, I get a kick out of it. We talk about who’s pitching tonight, and what we need to do. It’s like being on sports radio.
