Readerpix: Full moon over A-Roid

Baseball ‘Roid Controversy

Funny timing – Hoboken411 reader Jessica sent in this picture of a full moon over the new Yankee Stadium recently (in “honor of A-Rod”). And this brings up a good talking point: What are your feelings about professional baseball these days?

With Alex Rodriguez (“A-Roid,” “A-R*d,” etc.) in the spotlight now – and payrolls (and ticket prices) reaching the stratosphere – is the game enjoyable anymore?

My own brother, who has been a die-hard Yankees fan, even expressed disgust towards the team he passionately followed his whole life. Whether it’s the massive salaries, or the fact he “guaranteed” that the Yanks would never win a world series until they ditched A-Rod, it seems that the pastime he frequently enjoyed has taken a nosedive. It just doesn’t feel right, does it?

If Hoboken ever had a bowling alley it would be cosmic/neon bowling atmosphere with a dance area serving $8 beers. $5 cover to get in and somehow there’d still be a waiting list on weekends.

How do we know ANYONE isn’t using it then ? Not just all about Rodriguez.[/quote]

GREAT POINT WF. Jeter is tops on my suspect list.[/quote]

I suggest banning MLB in favor of a real sport – like bowling.
