As New York Magazine observes, hubris rarely bites people in the ass like you want it to. Karl Rove left the White House before being brought down, people still read Perez Hilton, and Donald Trump retains the power of speech.
But it looks like uber-agent Scott Boras, the egomaniac blowhard who thought he was bigger than the World Series, is finally getting thrown off his high horse.
After all, Alex Rodriguez and Cynthia Rodriguez have crawled back to the Yankees' negotiating table â€" alone â€" just three weeks after A-Rod opted out of his deal with New York and left the city (and the rest of the country) cursing his name.
As Scott Boras has clearly fallen out of favor with the superstar, does that make wife Cynthia Rodriguez A-Rod's de facto agent now? That would be spectacular for all.
She was at the Yankees' meeting with A-Rod and is the biggest influence on him right now - it's obvious Cynthia Rodriguez wears the pants in this relationship.
Could she be the boss now? Unlike Boras, she's actually got balls (remember the F-Rod t-shirt). In any case, Alex and Cynthia Rodriguez, who recently announced they're expecting baby #2, are almost certainly going ink a new deal with New York soon, potentially giving us another decade of celebrity gossip fodder.
