A newspaper in the Dominican Republic reports that New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez has found the Apollonia of his eye. As Diario Libre puts it, “A-Rod is stuck on a young girl from Santiago.”
That’s not a line from “West Side Story,” but the scene is reminiscent of Al Pacino’s Michael Corleone character hiding out in Italy during “The Godfather,” only to fall in love with a woman from his father’s hometown in Sicily named Apollonia Vitelli.
While he doesn’t have a price on his head literally, A-Rod has been in living in a recurring semi-exile while he rehabs his surgically repaired hip and weathers the latest PED trouble coming from the Biogenesis clinic in Miami. And that stuff about his charity. Rodriguez did poke his head out on opening day to be with his team at Yankee Stadium, but he otherwise has stayed in the shadows.
But, as usually is the case with Rodriguez, he didn’t keep his profile low enough. The media found him in the old country:
[He] spent practically all day last Saturday together with his new love, which, according to Diario Libre sources, is Rebeca Yunen Finke, 24, an honors graduate in Business Administration from PUCMM.
I guess Torrie Wilson is done.
