Does A-Rod Deserve Any Respect?
I'm sitting here eating a leftover chicken cutlet sandwich. It's disgusting. I'm disgusting, but here it goes. You know who else is pretty disgusting? Even more disgusting than this God awful sandwich? I'll tell you who, Mr. Alex Rodriguez. This blog isn't a sports blog and by no means do I have the right to judge this guy but I'm going to because fuck it.
If you've been living under a rock for the past few years, I'll fill you in. A-Rod did steroids, and steroids are bad (to keep it simple). He eventually lied about it and basically fucked his whole reputation. In my eyes A-Rod is the worst cheater in the history of the world, not even just athletics. He's worse than Lance Armstrong. He's even worse than that lady that won the Boston (or some other place) Marathon by taking the bus. Young A-Rod had so much talent that steroids were completely unnecessary, but for some reason he decided to cheat. Steroids put A-Rod in the overall category of cheaters, who are arguably some of the worst people in the world. Lets look into this a bit.
Why do cheaters cheat? In simplest terms, cheaters cheat so that they can have something they otherwise could not attain. Think about the dude Jesse James. He was the douche that cheated on the Sandra Bullock. Sandra Bullock is filthy rich and is pretty fucking hot. Yes, she makes ABSOLUTELY terrible movies, but that is no reason to cheat on her. Yes, Miss Congeniality was the worst thing the United States has seen since polio. But like polio, Bullock's terrible films can be cured. But Jesse James fucked up and now has the pleasure of welcoming A-Rod to his club of douchebags. But, Hey A-Rod guess what? You are not just a part of this prestigious club, you are now apart of a country of cheaters, YOU ARE A RUSSIAN. Since it's Olympic season and Russian athletes have been caught doping, I felt this connection was necessary. How does it feel Alexander? You're a douche and you can't even root for Rocky anymore. Now that's a double whammy!
Now in all seriousness, the guy had a great career on paper but with all the lying and cheating throughout the last few years, he doesn't deserve anyone's respect anymore. Just like any cheater in the world. If I cheat on a test and lie about it, I get in a shit ton of trouble and lose people's respect. This is the same fate A-Rod should suffer.
(P.S. I just finished the sandwich and it was actually pretty good.)
