What's in Your Wallet?

Is doing the wrong thing only wrong when you get caught?

After being benched towards the end Game 1 of the ALCS at Yankee Stadium, Alex Rodriguez got caught flirting with, and giving a baseball to, two females in the stands.

Needless to say, Yankees fans were up in arms when they heard this news. But let’s be real - this kind of thing probably happens all the time in Major League Baseball. I don’t think A-Rod invented that move, and I don’t even think he was the first one to do it in a very important game.

So I don’t think the problem was what A-Rod did, or that he got caught.

I think the problem is A-Rod himself.

Because A-Rod doesn’t have credibility built up with the fans. Throughout his career, he’s been his own worst enemy, creating one controversy after another.

In short, outside of his mammoth talent, A-Rod hasn’t given fans much reason to like him.

Imagine if Derek Jeter or Curtis Granderson had done something like give a woman a ball during a game (not that I think they would). Do you think everyone would turn on them so quickly? It’s more likely that they’d find a way to justify the action, saying it was basically innocent, because they have credibility.

It’s like that Capital One commercial that asks, What’s in your wallet?

The Jeters and Grandersons are flush with goodwill.

A-Rod’s wallet is (ironically) empty.

What about you?

Do you build up credibility with your loved ones and coworkers by being consistent and generous with them? Will they be there to defend you when your controversy comes?

  • I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
