A couple of dudes dressed in New York Yankees gear, identifying themselves as Alex Rodriguez supporters, stood outside Citi Field on Tuesday before the All-Star game, campaigning for a boycott of the game and asking people to burn their tickets in support of A-Rod. Surprise! It wasn't too successful.
Of course, this is not an earnest attempt to glorify A-Rod, rather a "Daily Show"-like sketch from the guys behind the tongue-in-cheek Stand With A-Rod blog. Given A-Rod's embarrassing saga as of late, it's hard to imagine there would be two people in the country, let alone New York, who would embark on a crusade in defense of A-Rod.
