A-Rod Says "Sorry" With Full-Body, Pinstripe Tattoo

Nov 16, 2007

"I'm a Yankee For Life"
 
New YorkAlex Rodriguez is apparently serious about remaining a New York Yankee for the remainder of his career. What else to conclude after A-Rod unveiled dramatic new pinstripe tattoos in a carefully orchestrated “impromptu” press conference on the Grand Concourse in the Bronx, a few blocks and within sight of Yankee Stadium.
 
“I made a mistake,” Rodriguez said, “I own it 100%, and that’s why I’ve taken this unprecedented step. I can’t think of a better way to prove to Mr. Steinbrenner, and to his boys, my commitment to the Yankee organization than with a permanent pinstripe dermal pigmentation.
 
“I asked Mr. Steinbrenner to be there for the procedure, and he graciously agreed,” said Rodriguez, “I didn’t want him to think there was any chance I’d change my mind.”
 
Asked about reports that agent Scott Boras had also decided on a tattoo, Rodriguez said curtly, “I know what that’s about and it won’t work.”
 
In an increasingly rare public appearance, Steinbrenner thanked Rodriguez for his “lovely gesture,” then brought the house down when he said he planned his own tattoo, the famous Yankee logo.
 
“It’ll be on a body part (Red Sox president) Larry Lucchino is gonna kiss next fall,” said Steinbrenner.
