The Wisdom of A-Rod’s Mom


The profile of Alex Rodriguez in Details is mostly standard fare for a glossy men’s mag (including the vaguely creepy photo above), but there’s also this quote:

“I was convinced I was going to play in the NBA. And my mother gives me an NBA roster and a highlighter and says, “Line out all the Dominican players you find there. I looked for 15 minutes and couldn’t find one. Then she pulls out a Major League Baseball roster–over 100 Latin players. ‘Okay, Mom.’ Two weeks later, I was back at baseball.”
