Wow, and I thought WE were superstitious

In today's Times, Billywitz blames the Yankees' loss last night on...A-Rod.

That's right. His "article" on the game actually focuses on how A-Rod showing up with J-Lo skewed the Yankees' luck.

You know, I'm willing to agree that A-Rod seems like kind of a jerk.

The living avatar of all evil?  Mmm, not so much.

Just because it is a piece I like.

But think of the juju those two aging superstars must generate from the friction of their writhing.

Howard Stern used to do a funny riff on the way snooty people refer to someone by their family name and the city from which they come. For example, "Pierre DuPont, of the Delaware DuPonts", or "Cornelius Vanderbilt, of the Newport Vanderbilts", etc.

Whenever he referred to J Lo, he would say "Ahh, yes. Jennifer Lopez, of the Bronx Lopez-es."

Like him or not, Stern can be an astute social commentator/satirist at times.
