There were about seven of us girls at a local restaurant to celebrate my birthday, when in walked Alex Rodriguez, otherwise known as A-Rod.
Yes, THE A-ROD! The New York Yankees third baseman!
He came over to the table and said he heard it was my birthday and was it okay if he joined us. He proceeded to explain that my friends had arranged this wonderful birthday surprise for me as they heard he was in town and they knew I was a big fan.
I was wide-eyed and tongue-tied but Alex was gracious, smiling, witty, and charming. It was my best birthday dinner EVER!

Sad. I know.
But my sister-in-law thought it was real when she saw it on facebook.

And then I woke up.
Seriously. I woke up. I was DREAMING!
Ever since Alex Rodriguez joined the Yankees I have been a big fan. Much to my real-life husband’s chagrin, I refer to Alex as my “make-believe husband”.
And I have stuck with him through all the media hoopla. The Madonna kabbalah (who would have thought he’d go for the older ladies-and do I have a chance?) the Cameron Diaz popcorn time, and all the carrying on with the adorable Kate Hudson.
But if he leaves the Yankees I just might drop him like a hot potato.
Baseball fans are fickle like that you know!
