Things are starting to get weird between A-Rod and Eric Chavez:
"Wanna play Go Fish, Chavvy?" “Not right now, Al.” “Yeah, I hate cards, too.” “It’s not that I hate cards —” “Me neither, I just hate them right now.” “We’ll play later, maybe.” “I love cards later.” “Maybe.” “Maybe’s great.”

"Will you sign my cast, Jetes? All the guys are." He waves his cast at me. There are no names on it. “How about you get Swish to go first? He signs big, I don’t want him to sign over my name.” “It would really mean a lot to me if you went first.” “I don’t have a Sharpie.” “I have one right here.” He holds up a marker, and I notice he’s got a newspaper in his lap. He’s finished a Sudoku puzzle, but instead of numbers there are big red letters in all the boxes, spelling ARODAROD in every direction.
