New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez hit his 600th home run Wednesday afternoon against the Toronto Blue Jays. It's a feat just six other players have achieved. But did it matter to Twitter?
Man! ESPN newsroom just exploded with excitement at A-Rod's 600th. I can't even hear myself in here. (total and complete sarcasm. silence)
Congrats, A-Rod - just 163 more to go before you become the guy idiots try to ignore when calling Hank Aaron the "true HR king"
Hank Steinbrenner just called A-Rod "Mr. Day Game"
Congratulations A-Rod. I will never remember where I was the day you hit 600.
I will say I'm grateful that A-Rod hit 600 during a day game so I won't have to write about it.
Time to eat crow. Four A-Rod Terms now trending 36 minutes after he hit 600.
Let's start the bidding for A-Rod's 600th HR ball. I'll go as high as ten bucks, but that's gotta cover S&H
Congrats to A. Rod. 600 more and you're a True Yankee.
Next Yankees all-consuming round-number countdown circus: Derek Jeter is 130 hits away from 3,000. You've been warned.
