I HATE SEEING ANYONE SUFFER FROM AN INJURY IN OR OUT OF SPORTS.

I feel bad for him and wish he was in prime condition so he could beat the snot out of our opposition. It looks like that may just be fantasy and in reality, the ARod thing is over. That stinks. I have seen him play many times in person and like him or not he stands out when he is on that field.
'Real' Yankee fans tell the truth about the team whether it is nice or not.
