I don’t know what’s better about this story. That Yuri Sucart’s wife is so over the top in calling A-Rod out to be the devil — she actually called him that — or that, based on the byline, it took no fewer than four New York Daily News reporters to get this bad boy to print. Anyway:
An “evil” Alex Rodriguez urinated on the floor of his cousin’s home to send a message and mark his territory, Yuri Sucart’s wife told the Daily News Thursday in an explosive interview.
Carmen Sucart, whose husband, Yuri Sucart, is A-Rod’s estranged cousin and alleged steroid mule, blasted Rodriguez for accusing her deathly ill husband of trying to extort the troubled Yankee superstar.
You have to go to the story for the quotes because my copy-and-paste hand is shaking I am laughing so hard. Laughing at the idea of A-Rod recreating the pee-on-the-rug scene from Lebowski. Laughing at the wife of a guy who served as his cousin’s drug mule (and maybe for others) and who pretty clearly tried to shake him down and is now under a criminal indictment on seven felony counts calling Rodriguez the bad guy here. Laughing at the Daily News for implicitly agreeing with this by virtue of running this story with virtually no critical pushback or context that does not make A-Rod the devil.
But there’s sadness here too. I mean, dude, that rug really tied the room together.
