I was at the M's-Yankees game tonight and they booed him, as usual. I agree with the previous post, though, it wasn't as bad as when he first came back to Seattle playing with Texas. There were a few people throwing fake money from the stands and they cheered when he struck out.
I live in Seattle and have been going to M's games since the mid-80's and I'm tired of the A-Rod booing. Get over it. I think it makes the Seattle fans look like idiots. That they spend so much energy on showing their hatred for a player is just stupid. Alex is a great player, he's never said or done anything that would make a person think he's a jerk.
With their continuous booing of A-Rod, it just makes Seattle fans look more and more like a whiny, jilted lover, pining after the ex who dumped them. It's time to get over it and move on. They should be booing some of their current players who are helping them to a last-place finish in the AL West.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
