Blind Items Revealed #3

March 19, 2018

This former A+ list athlete who recently retired to enjoy the life of celebrity/part-time reality star/frequent strip club patron is developing a line of custom collectible bats to commemorate his home runs.  For whatever reason, his A list girlfriend is the money behind the venture, although it is technically billed as a joint venture.

The original artwork for the collectibles is very on-brand - uses a former team's color scheme, very masculine.

The artwork his girlfriend wants used is very off-brand - feminine colors with lots of pastels and much too feminine for this type of item.  Looks more like what you would see used for a line of cosmetics or skin care.

Our former athlete's people want to go with the original artwork because they know it makes more sense with the theme for sports collectibles.  The girlfriend is pushing hard for her vision.  Since she is the real money behind the venture, she's got big sway. The boyfriend is stuck in the middle.

Will be interesting to see if money beats out good business sense in this venture.

Alex Rodriguez/Jennifer Lopez

But what do they think about the QAnon metaconspiracy

Now I want to see these. I’d imagine hers are better. She’s made a career out of marketing and catching the public eye. He’s just another roided asshole jock who can’t get out of his own way.

ARod is actually a very good and successful businessman, she knows this and bought in.
She seems to be a good businesswoman too.

I remember when there was a blind here about A-Rod having the hots for a transexual fan. Was that one of the fake ones?

Geeljire said...

No

sandybrook said...

ARod normally likes masculine, athletic looking women DDonna.

OK. I don't know much about sports, but I do know more about baseball than the other sports because my dad and grandpa very much liked baseball. And the really good Yankees and Dodgers were always a kind of celebrity, from Joe DiMaggio to Mickey Mantle to Reggie Jackson to A-Rod and Derek Jeter.

One of the big naughty gossip things about the Yankees from a decade or so ago was a notorious Vanity Fair article by the at-the-time Washington Post sports reporter Christine Brennen (I think it was her, I might be wrong) that was spiked shortly before publication.

It was her guide to the "size" of all the best known athletes that she'd seen in locker rooms across sports. It claimed a lot of the tension between Derek Jeter and A-Rod stemmed from the latter being so big and the former so small. Greydon Carter killed it before publication, and nobody else would touch it. So to speak.

There used to be pieces on the internet about this small scandal, but I can't find them anymore.

Just what the world needs... more crap.

No wonder JHo's brands, fashion, and endorsement deals keep failing if she's this stupid to not know rule one of marketing, "know your target audience".

Guesser said...

@DDonna, it would be the other way around. A-Rod and his steroids have side effects. Derek was a known non user,despite pressure to use. Yes,I heard about the transgender girlfriend,it seems she just disappeared. His woman before JLo were muscular and usually big fake boobs. He did talk Kate Hudson into getting implants,but they are pretty normal looking.

sysadmn said...

So is A-Rod an evil genius, or just evil? He had almost half a BILLION dollars in career earnings, but J-Lo is fronting the money? She takes the risk, he gets the rewards?

DDonna Tarttty said...

Since all these reports about the spiked VF article came second hand, it would definitely be possible the roles were reversed by whoever got the gossip out there first. It would also help explain why people would rationalize making it disappear on the internet.

I totally believe Jeter has small twig and berries.

Florin said...

Did she want the bats to vibrate as well?

Kikibunny said...

I totally believe a-rod is well hung...he is puerto rican for chrissakes...jlo doesnt need money...lol

orangesoda said...

To be fair, even if she is financing this, pretty pastels are not going to sell.

Kevin Connolly said...

I don't understand why either of them would need the other to be the "money" behind this venture. Does JLo even have more money than ARod?

Brayson87 said...

Have you seen the crowds at baseball stadiums, I think pink bats would sell pretty well. ;)

Guesser said...

@Kikibunny,A-Rod is American of Dominican decent.

Guesser said...

All the Major League players wore pink one day, hats, socks,jerseys,some even had pink bats and gloves.I would buy a pink Yankee jersey.

Guesser said...

A-Rod has more money than JLo,but he is cheap. There were stories about him being a cheapskate with Cameron Diaz, for instance.

Aoife said...

A-Rod is of Dominican descent.
J-Lo is Puerto Rican.

The two ethnic groups usually hate each (Ask anyone who has lived around the two groups) but hey you never know.

Anyway unless they're selling marital aids J-Lo should have a seat.
