A-Rod upset about Super Bowl cameo

BY foxsports • February 8, 2011

New York Yankees star third baseman Alex Rodriguez went "ballistic" after cameras cut to him and Hollywood gal pal Cameron Diaz during Super Bowl XLV, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Tuesday, citing an unnamed source.

Cameras caught the superstar couple between plays just as Diaz was feeding the Yankees' slugger popcorn.

"He really went ballistic — thinking the cameraman was out to get them in a paparazzi-like shot…" an unnamed insider told the Sun-Times. "Anyone who knows anything about producing a live sports event, especially something as huge as the Super Bowl, would know that those celebrity shots are purely random."

The source claims A-Rod was not feeling the love and was reportedly given a guarantee that he would not be televised to the 111 million Super Bowl viewers again.

"That's one reason you saw so many shots of [former] President and Mrs. Bush," the source said. "They didn't seem to mind being shown on camera."
