You can't spell prima donna without Madonna, a bit ironic given that Alex Rodriguez - long considered a me-first baseball player - may actually be demonstrating true signs of displaying and selflessness with his recent actions.
Here's the question: Is the rumored affair between Alex Rodriguez and Madonna about sex, or lighting a fire under the mediocre, third-place New York Yankees?
Consider the fact that the last three high-profile athletes to have supposedly boinked Madonna went on to win their sport's title that year:
- Jose Canseco, 1989 (Oakland A's won World Series)
- Mark Messier, 1994 (New York Rangers won Stanley Cup)
- Dennis Rodman, 1996 (Chicago Bulls won NBA Championship)
See!? Madonna is like the anti-Jessica Simpson! If A-Rod is really cheating on Cynthia Rodriguez with her, he's just doing it for the team!
But it paying dividends? Not immediately, at least. Since news of the alleged Alex Rodriguez-Madonna tryst broke on June 30, New York is just 1-3, including a 7-0 drubbing by Boston last night at Yankee Stadium.
