A-Rod now dating above replacement level

By

In one sense, it pains me to write about this. Who cares what the Yankees are doing with their personal lives, right? In another way, though, I’m very happy to report that Alex Rodriguez has finally figured out that he can do better than a 50 (and a half) year old pop star. His latest fling: Kate Hudson. I certainly approve, as she’s a significant upgrade from Madonna. Plus, she used to be married to Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes, which is all sorts of awesome. Ben’s reaction: “Dammit. I want to date Kate Hudson.” Mike’s reaction: “You know, I never thought that she was all that hot.” I’m definitely siding with Ben on this one.

That’s definitely her best movie role. For a nude, but covered, photo, go here.

Update by Mike (7:38pm): Go ahead and use this for the open thread tonight. The Knicks are in New Orleans, but otherwise all the local teams are off. Play nice.

    nice job A-Rod!

    • Malcard89

      eh, for a celebrity, and all the make-up people they have at their service, kate hudson isnt super gorgeous. i think the hottest current celebrity is mila kunis. and if we’re talking of all time, reese witherspoon in her 20s, WOW!

  • A.D.

    thank god, the less Madonna is in the news the better

  • CB

    When the tabloids write articles about ARod’s personal life you guys excoriate them for it. And rightly so.

    Who cares? This post doesn’t seem up to the professed standards of your site and that’s disappointing.

    • jsbrendog

      this post has see through shirt pic of kate hudson. bite your tongue

      Eh, we had some room for filler. Plus, people are having fun with it. It’s not like we post this kind of shit often.

  • Ivan

    I still have a hard time believing that A-Rod was really fuckin with Madonna. All serious, I really think A-Rod and Madonna were just close friends. Would A-Rod really fuck a dried up 50+ year old woman? I doubt that.

    • Ivan

      Not that I care of what A-Rod does in his personal life.

      • RichYF aka sooooo tired of the “namedrop says hello” meme

        Not that I care of what A-Rod does in his personal life.

        Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

          That’s better! Above still applies.

    • Peter Lacock

      You obviously don’t know shit.

  • Pauile

    I do agree that she is an upgrade over Maddona but I know this will turn into another soap opera.

  • Steve S

    I just clicked on links I never want to click again…especially from RAB.

    From my perspective- Kate Hudson- definitely (not the greatest but definitely) and as for Madonna- yes at least once just to say I did so I always understood Arod.

  • http://nyfaninboston.blogspot.com/ Manimal

    kate>madonna.

  • Ricky

    woo-hoo! Im happy for my favorite player. The Yankees upgrade their team, A-Rod upgrades his woman….all good after the Yanks missed the playoffs while A-rod dated that old thing. If he gets Megan Fox, i smell 9-yrs of BOTH Regular-Season and World-Series MVPs…

  • Lanny

    Who here wouldn’t bang out Madonna for a month or two if you had the chance?

  • http://m.facebook.com/profile.php?r1fb85138&refid=7 Jamal G

    Mike’s an idiot. The only chic I want more than Kate Hudson is Alicia Keys, the chic who played Nu-Nu in “ATL” and Eva Mendez.

    • Ivan

      Are you talking about Lauren London?

      • John

        not Megan Fox?

          • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

            Agreed.

            • Jay CT

              You all are SO wrong. Megan Fox is all kinds of hot, and shes crazy too. You are nuts picking some of those other girls over her. Megan Fox is far and away one of the hottest chicks going. Has anyone seen her shot on the hood of the car in Transformers? Mix the hottness with the absolute craziness and you got one fun chick to “hang around” with

        Yessir.

      Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? Alba still reigns surpreme.

      • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

        The fact that she has a kid has knocked her down a couple pegs. I know she got her body back, but unless she is doing the “special” exercises to get something else a bit tighter, no thanks in comparison to the above listed.

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

          Hudson has a kid too, you know.

      • steve

        doesn’t she have herpes ? i remember reading jete gave them to her ?

        oh well i’d probably still bang alba with herps

  • Will

    Someone should tell Adam Scott about this, considering he just spend the weekend with her.

    • John

      maybe he swooped in during the last minute and took her…like hoe we got Tex

  • Abe

    First of all great title.

    Second, I happen to agree with Mike. Kate Hudson is better looking than Madonna, however A-Rod should be doing much better. Think about it – they guy is raking in money and he is a good looking guy and he is ripped:

    http://hitlesswanderings.mlblo.....p/arod.jpg

    What is clear from all this is that A-Rod just has no game with the ladies and/or a terrible personality. I mean, the guy should e nailing Giselle, Jessica Simpson or Elisha Cuthbert (please tell me sean avery is in Russia right now).

    • ricky

      agreed but hey it’s a start…SIGNIFICANT upgrade over Madonna

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph P.

      I’d rather nail Kate Hudson than Jessica Simpson.

      • Mike Pop

        Ugh

      • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

        Nah, dude, I’d bang the hell out of a ditzy chic in a cocaine heartbeat.

        • Mike Pop

          2nded. Ya she can’t act but I bet she’s good in the sack.

  • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime

    Pfft…

    Still not as hot as me.

    …I kid, I kid. And besides, I’m not the cheatin’ type.

    • Jay CT

      Hillarious

    She just looks like a younger Madonna to me.

    I’m with Mike A on this. She’s cute in a girlie kinda way, but doesn’t give me any sexual vibe at all. Also, when you find out she was married to ‘Cousin It’ her stock kinda drops for me. I mean, that guy’s just skeevy.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph P.

      But, but…he’s the singer for the Black Crowes! And they rock.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Thank you. She’s obviously a very beautiful woman, but I don’t think she’s worth the hype. She’s like the … Carlos Zambrano of hot chicks.

      LOTD.

  • Macphisto

    I don’t know. Anyone who is sloppy seconds from Chris Robinson is a little skeevy to me. I think A-Rod should definitely play wingman to Derek if he wants to upgrade his dating life. Here is the gal Jeter recently was with, that is more like it: http://theblemish.com/images/2.....y-self.jpg

                • Artist formerly known as ‘The’ Steve

                  How about “Get in touch with my masculine side? Fine. Bend over, I’ll strap this on and start with you.”

                • Artist formerly known as ‘The’ Steve

                  I’m assuming, of course that you would be strapping on your tool belt and help him build a Hobby Horse.

      • UWS

        You called?

        I see I’ve missed a doozy…Oh well.

        By the way, Kate Hudson? Hot. Maybe not as hot as Rebecca (definitely not as hot as me), but hot, nonetheless.

        • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          True. I’d definitely h/t both you and Rebecca before Kate Hudson.

  • Artist formerly known as ‘The’ Steve

    Check out this gossip column about why they broke up

    “Speculation surrounding the end of Kate Hudson and Chris Robinson’s marriage seems to be focusing on her close friendship with Owen Wilson. But there were longer-term issues. Like many rocks singers, Chris is fond of group sex and threesomes while on tour, and Black Crowes insiders had often seen Chris and Kate heading to their hotel with a keen groupie or fan in tow. But by the end of the last tour Kate was said to be tagging along like a turkey on its way to Christmas lunch.”

    http://www.celebitchy.com/2006....._robi.html

    Yikes. Goes on to say they were pretty much swingers, so A-Rod will be perfect for her. Not that I’ve ever heard he hangs at Le Trapeze, or every other swing club across the country.

  • p

    kate hudson… not that hot

  • pat

    Does going out to dinner with a group of people and hitting a bar afterward with a friend of the opposite sex really equal “dating” these days?

    • pat

      that wasnt me

  • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

    I think Kate Hudson is one of those chics that have to fit your type for her to be real appealing to you. For me, I am infatuated with a petite chic, therefore, Hudson does it for me. But yeah, I can easily understand why some aren’t so up on her.

    Sadly though, A-Rod has ways to go before reaching Jeter level, take Jessica Biel for example.

      I heard she has mental issues, though. Like she’s so obsessed with working out that even Justin Timberlake began to worry.

      • http://asportsaddictneedsdivineintervention.blogspot.com/ E-ROC

        As long as she doesn’t sound like a dude, she can work out all day every day.

        She has the body of a dude. I don’t find her hot at all

        • Andy In Sunny Daytona

          Amen Jay. Finally someone who agrees with me. Biel has the look, in the face, of a tranny.

      • Evan

        I think she’s recently stopped going heavy on the training since apparently she doesn’t want to be typecast as an action actress. Heh.

        Frankly, I like her physique.

                  1. Never listened.
                  2. Never heard of.
                  3. I agree, they are the shit.

                  OK, so how do you feel about Three Days Grace, Fall Out Boy, Boys Like Girls, Lupe Fiasco, T.I., Eminem and Avenged Sevenfold?

                  I listen to a lot of salsa and bachata, but I’m assuming you are not a Spanish speaker.

                • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph P.

                  You’ve never HEARD OF Pantera? Holy shit.

                  As for the rest: Hate ‘em, hate them almost as much as I hate Paramore (but only because my girlfriend doesn’t play them for weeks on end), never heard ‘em (but the song by Blur was good), never heard, not familiar enough with TI, gotta love Eminem, cannot stand Avenged Sevenfold.

                • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

                  Slipknot? The Offspring? My Chemical Romance? Mastodon? N.E.R.D.? Porcelain and the Tramps? Plain White T’s?

                • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

                  OMFG, you never heard of Pantera?

                  Dwindling it down to three will be tough, but my faves:

                  1. Strike Anywhere
                  2. Propagandhi
                  3. Pennywise

                • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph P.

                  Heh, I listened to Slipknot almost every day my senior year in high school.

                  Wait. You like Mastodon but haven’t heard of Pantera? WTF?

                  N.E.R.D. is underrated. Their last album wasn’t great, but the two before it were.

                • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

                  2. Heard.
                  3. Of.

                  Sorry, dude. I don’t know if it’s because I’m 19 or it’s because I’m more into pop and punk rock than the vintage stuff. I consider myself eclectic in my musical tastes, but yeah, I’ve never heard of those three.

                • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

                  I miss the days when Fall out Boy was something special. Now the stupid pre-teen girls at the camp I worked at got their hands on FOB….sigh…it gets me down to the point where I want them to make a record stretching to their hardcore roots (hell, make a grindcore album) just to get the new fanbase totally alienated.

                  A little less “Infinity on High” a lot more “Take This To Your Grave” please.

                • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

                  The first two bands aren’y very well known, but I thought maybe you’d heard of Pennywise, they’re pretty big.

                • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

                  Unless it’s in that pop or punk genre, I really don’t discover it myself, I get it recommended to me. For instance, Mastodon, a friend of mine put me up on that. Same thing with Porcelain, that was the girlfriend’s (hell, she goes to Manson concerts) recommendation. I am a lot more into grunge, metal and death metal than I previously was, but it still isn’t my favorite genre. That’s probably why I know of Mastodon but never heard of Pantera.

                • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

                  I think I may have heard the name somewhere, but I haven’t even the slightest clue if I heard even a snippet of some of their work.

                • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph P.

                  I’ll continue this thread below. It’s getting unwieldy up here.

          • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

            I liked them when they first came out. The more and more I listened to it, the worse and worse it was. Kind of like Cute Is What We Aim For, but with more synthesizers–and a reputably equally shitty live show.

            Anyone else hoping for a Midtown re-union in 09? No? Alright I’ll shut up now.

          • RichYF aka sooooo tired of the “namedrop says hello” meme

            Jamal, you fail so hard. Are you kidding me with that new Panic album? Awful.

            I saw Hayley when she was 15 at some track center opening for Bayside. Wasn’t really impressed.

            But seriously, Panic? Yeah their debut album has some party atmosphere moments, but get out of here with that new alb.

            • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

              I loved the new direction Panic took. It’s basically like they’re telling a story with the whole album, it’s great.

              • RichYF aka sooooo tired of the “namedrop says hello” meme

                If you want a story, listen to The Hold Steady. But yeah, you’ve lost at least 35 cool points in my book. You’re still a better candidate for the HoF than Jim Rice though so it’s not that big of a deal.

                • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

                  THS is pretty cool. I haven’t listened to anything past “Boys and Girls In America,” though. It was surely a grower. The vocals took a while to get used to.

                  Another good story album is “The Mother, The Mechanic, The Path” by The Early November or “…Is a Real Boy” by Say Anything.

        It annoys me that most of the boys in the “scene” (from which I’m pretty much all but removed now) think that she’s good looking. Because she isn’t. And Paramore sucks.

    Good work Al,
    Today I am proud of A-rod.

  • ryan

    kate hudson has an ass u can eat off of.

  • Januz

    I am so sick of Arod and his conquests. I wish he would be as successful in playoff situations. This clown is the only thing negative about the Yankee offseason. I say leave his romances to People Magazine, and the other similiar magazines.
    I will say one thing though, about Megan Fox, she is the most aptly named star in motion picture history. A total FOX.

    Baseball perspective for a second…

    Don’t you feel more comfortable with A-Rod and Madonna. I don’t think Madonna is hot anymore, but she has stayed in pretty good shape into her fifties. We got a-Rod for 9 more years. A little kabala would do him well, if he could even get half as ripped as Madonna.

    Madonna and A-Rod are still together. The other people linked to them are just distraction for the gossipers.

    Jamal, if you are into metal, I suggest you do the following.

    1) Go to iTunes
    2) Download Vulgar Display of Power by Pantera
    3) Listen and repeat

        I switch among

        hip-hop (PE, Roots, NWA, Black Star, DMC, Snoop, Dre, Biggy, Pac, Beastie Boys…basically, all the shit suburban white kids like)

        metal (Pantera, Metallica, In Flames, Megadeth, Machine Head, the first Killswitch Engage album, Iron Maiden, Dethklok)

        classic rock (zep, Deep Purple, Jimi, The Who, The Kinks, Dire Straits, Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Aerosmith, etc.)

        punk (Pennywise, NOFX, The Clash, The Ramones, Bad Religion, No Doubt (Tragic Kingdom only, really), Reel Big Fish, Sublime, Rancid/Op Ivy)

        and then some other, strange shit, like chili peppers, radiohead, nirvana, smashing pumpkins, Tenacious D, Stuck Mojo, Tool, The Urge, Weezer, N.E.R.D….I could go on forever.

                Michelle has since left the band, though. =(

                A few weeks ago, I found a mix of mine that had their five original demos on it from when John and Shaun first left Taking Back Sunday. I remember sitting online waiting for them to come out and being so pumped. The only thing that compares to that was the anticipation for Midtown’s latest (2004) album and the Brand New demos released before “The Devil and God…”

          I really enjoyed the first 3 or so seasons of The Office, and then kind of started to hate it along about season 4. I literally stopped watching in the middle of Season 5, because it just got so crappy. It’s basically ALL Steve Carrell all the time now. The other characters essentially exist only for him to be a buffoon in their faces.

          It’s really annoying.

          I don’t know if I could narrow it down to five.

          Bayside, Boys Night Out, Chiodos, Saosin, New Found Glory, Ramones, Sublime, Unwritten Law, Nirvana, The Killers, Pennywise, Queen, Rage Against The Machine. I could go on and on and on…

        American Idiot. Mmm. I don’t know I love me some Green Day, but that album just seemed like they were jumping on the political music bandwagon. After that all the sudden there are all these kids that know absolutely nothing about politics thinking they know everything. Annoying.

          Two songs is hardly jumping on the political music bandwagon.

          But I see what you mean. I used to steal “Dookie” from my sister all the time. I learned the words to “Basket Case” and “When I Come Around” before I learned the words to “the Star Spangled Banner” and “America the Beautiful.”

        GOOD CHARLOTTE =/= EMO
        FALL OUT BOY =/= EMO
        DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL =/= EMO

        Ugh, I hate that word with a passion because of how miss used it has been. Fuck MTV.

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph P.

          In the modern vernacular “Emo” has come to mean: Shitty new rock/pop/punk band with whiny vocals. Goddammit, I fucking HATE whiny vocals. The guy from Dashboard just might be the worst, though the Madden fucker from Good Charlotte is right up there.

          hahaha…

          i havent watched MTV in a good looooong while so I was under the impression that MTV didnt show videos anymore…

          • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

            I haven’t either but I blame them–and the mainstream media in general–for warping the word “emo” and not even understanding what the genre is. “Real” emo was borne of a movement in the DC hardcore movement in the late 80s. It’s not fucking pop-punk from the early 20th century.

            • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph P.

              I remember when I was a senior in HS (99 – 00) I had a buddy who was way into Emo. He introduced me to this band Jimmy Eat World.

              And then they blew up, but not as an emo band.

        • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph P.

          A bit, I guess. And I’m jealous. I would have loved to see Soundgarden live. My first was also in ’96. Green Day at Nassau. My buddy’s parents drove us from Jersey.

          • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

            My first was Aug. 2003–Midtown with My Chemical Romance (before they got big), Reggie and the Full Effect (fun band with one of the dudes from the Get Up Kids), and .moneen. (awesome Canadian band).

            • Steve H

              Blind Melon. 1992, before they became popular. Probably 200 people there at a tiny college, won the tickets on the college radio station. Had never even heard of them, but what the hell, free tickets (face was $5). I was 12, still can’t believe my mom let us go. They were unreal.

              • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph P.

                Everyone knows them for No Rain, but the rest of their shit is solid. The early 90s were filled with quality rock bands.

                • Steve H

                  I go so damn sick of No Rain, because it was far from their best work, and I’d already had the CD for months before it hit MTV and got big.

              Not a big fan of Midtown at all. Must have been 2000, maybe 2001 when I saw them and Thursday open for No Use For A Name. Hated both openers.

      Isn’t Zell a younger dude? So I assume his interviewee was young as well. They just didn’t live through the greatness that was Mo. But even so, you’re right, last season Mo was better. They had essentially the same K/9 (Mo had 1/3 more innings and they had the same # of Ks), and Mo was better in every other category.

      • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime
