Greetings from a snowy Staten Island. While I try to stay warm, and I think about how long it's going to take to dig out my PT Cruiser, I'm thinking about another car - Alex Rodriguez's one.
When A-Rod left yesterday's Yankee game early, he, Robinson Cano, and Mark Teixeira piled into Alex's auto, a $400,000 Mercedes Maybach. Fortunately, A-Rod had a different driver this time than when he had his cousin, Yuri Sucart drive him home after a spring training game last week.
But while the big news yesterday was that a "cooperative" A-Rod met with Major League Baseball to talk about his steroid usage, a sidebar to the story was Alex's car, and the fact that the license plate frame on it actually has his name on it, according to Peter Abraham. Way to go incognito, Alex!
And now that I've seen what A-Rod's Maybach looks like, (here are more images of other Maybachs) I have to say that I'm a bit unimpressed. For $400 grand, I would expect the car to solve crimes, fly, or be a time travel machine. This car looks just like a, well, car!
Am I missing something here?What do you think? Leave us a comment!
