A-Rod and "The More You Know"

From the New York Daily News (hat tip, Baseball Musings), some more great comedy about A-Rod's recent date with a Toronto stripper:

In New York, A-Rod used to be a regular at the VIP Club, where he always asked for a dancer who performs under the stage name Monique.

Monique is 5-feet-5 with brown hair and brown eyes and has a well-toned, muscular figure, a pal said.

When the stripper jumped over to the Hustler Club, Rodriguez started going there to see her perform and buy sexy lap dances, a source said. He even took her out for a pricey shopping spree at the Versace store on Fifth Ave., the source said.

...which provoked this comment from "mikeski" over at Baseball Musings:

I didn't realize that you had to specify that you want sexy lap dances.

The More You Know.

You know, they should do a NBC PSA on this topic on Saturday mornings. Good idea! (They may also want to do a PSA on how a $252M salary should probably give one the financial flexibility to have strippers come to one's room, saving one from the embarrassment of the paparazzi pictures. Hypothetically speaking, of course.)

As A-Rod said to the Blue Jays yesterday, "HA!"


Hi, Orel here. Just had to add this tidbit from Deadspin:

Meanwhile, the Daily News, scooped on the "story" yesterday, more than makes up for it today, with an extended piece just full of drippy goodness. ("A petite stripper at the Hustler Club said A-Rod 'likes the she-male, muscular type. They brought me up to the champagne room one time. I spun around once and that was it. I'm not his type.'" We have to tell you, folks: "A-Rod likes the she-male, muscular type" might be the best sentence an American newspaper has printed since "Holy Shit! Man Walks On Fucking Moon!")

Oh yes, you better specify sexy. I've had "other" -- I mean I heard about those. (better post incognito so people will think one of the sosg guys posted this)
