Alex Rodriguez lost a bet with Mark Wahlberg after the Red Sox' four-game sweep of the Yankees and had to spend Sunday working at Wahlburgers near Fenway Park before calling the Sox-Astros game for ESPN's "Sunday Night Baseball". He recapped it in an Instagram post and video.
Last month, @markwahlberg and his @RedSox brought the broom out and swept my @Yankees. So today, I got the mop. . It was time to me to hold up my end of the deal and report for duty to the @wahlburgers location near Fenway Park. Today, I had to do a little bit of everything - greet customers, flip burgers, clear tables, and yes, mop the bathroom floor. But what I thought was going to be a tough day turned out to be a day I really enjoyed. . The people in New England were incredibly hospitable. I'm sure they were in a great mood with both the Red Sox at home today and the @Patriots opening their season here, too. I was grateful for the way I was treated, and hey, I even got a free lunch in the deal. . It's no surprise there more than 25 Wahlburgers locations already across the country. If there's one near you, definitely find your way there. Delicious! . Now, I need to double down and hopefully get Mark in the Bronx sometime. #GoYankees . #beantown #patriots #celtics #redsox #sweetcaroline

A Sox series victory next week at Yankee Stadium - or more importantly, in a potential playoff matchup - will probably keep Marky Mark out of a New York burger joint. And no, A-Rod DID NOT slap any burgers out of anyone's hand.
