Yes, we've certainly been guilty of indulging in plenty of A-Rod stories, but can you blame us? After all, we're still waiting with baited breath for the Johnny Football Zapruder film to finally show up (back and to the left… back and to the left…) with nothing else better to do. In all the angles, takes, schadenfreude, and hoopla with A-Rod's return the one element I was most interested in was finding the call from Yankee radio and Ma and Pa Pinstripe – John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman.
It's not quite the return of Roger Clemens, but it is funny to hear Suzyn Waldman talk about how many in the crowd were STANDING AND CHEERING A-Rod as he came to the plate like he's making some kind of heroic comeback. The ultimate Yankee troll job. It's also funny to hear Ma and Pa Pinstripe disagree about the nature of A-Rod's single because one of them is contractually obligated to have no idea what's happening at any point in time.
