bischer prompted me to peek at yahoo's mlb page for some kiss cam news:

Alex Rodriguez finally got cheered again, and even had some fun.

The two-time AL MVP reached base three times and scored twice in the New York Yankees' 7-4 victory at Texas on Tuesday night, providing more signs of breaking out of his slump, and even entertaining the fans of his former team with a "Kiss Cam" performance.

When Rodriguez was shown on the giant video screen after the sixth inning, he reached over and playfully pecked teammate Andy Phillips on top of the head. The crowd, which has lustfully booed him this week, cheered after a smiling Rodriguez played along with the gag.

"That's the first kiss I've had in a long time. (The fans) loved it," said Rodriguez, whose struggles have led to plenty of boos at Yankee Stadium. He walked twice and was hit by a pitch.

"You better ask him how my hair tastes. It was funny," Phillips said. "I didn't know what he was doing, but that was fun. It's something I can tell my grandkids about." [ap]

first kiss in a long time? i can think of plenty of girls who'd volunteer to keep that drought from happening again.

  • lupe, if you go to the archived game on mlb.tv and go to the top of the 7th, that's when it happened. they only showed it on the TX feed, i'm gathering. it was cute---he and andy are sitting there and a roar goes through the crowd, and alex throws his hands up like "omg hey, i'm on the kiss cam!" and leans over, pulls andy to him by his head, ruffles his hair a bit and kisses the top of his head. what's even better is andy probably had no idea what was going on. :D

    a story to tell his grandchildren? snerk. andy clearly has a crush on alex.

  • actually, scratch that. you can just go to the highlights of the game on mlb.com and see it: "a-rod on the kiss cam."

    i love that my friends are such awesome sleuths. i'm gonna see if my friend can't rip it for me.

  • i'm sure cynthia's drafting a press release explaining that arod meant it was his first kiss in a long time with anyone besides HER (and mentioning that she has a masters degree, for the benefit of the 1.2 humans left on earth whom she hasn't yet bludgeoned with that fact)

  • It was on the ESPN feed as well. I figuratively laughed my balls off when I saw it.

    Oh and Alex probably has a different definition of "a long time" than the rest of us.
