NYC bodega named after A-Rod to get name change
The owner of a Brooklyn bodega named after New York Yankee Alex
Rodriguez says he’ll change the store’s name as more and more
customers complain about the beleaguered baseball star.
Owner Ricardo Rodriguez tells the Daily News
(http://nydn.us/1aAs44e ) Saturday that customers have been
kvetching about the name of his store, A-Rod Grocery.
The establishment was called Pena Grocery until Rodriguez
renamed it 13 years ago in honor of the then-Seattle Mariners
But now Rodriguez, who is not related to three-time MVP, says
he’s sick of listening to all the griping about the third baseman.
Rodriguez is playing while he appeals a 211-game suspension for
violating baseball’s drug agreement and labor contract. On
Wednesday the slugger said he was stopping all non-baseball talk
after a wild weekend of off-the-field drama.
