Holy cow, look Pa, our dead cousin's ex (Desiree Perez) is in the news...

"[M]ultiple sources told the Daily News that A-Rod’s last chance for a dignified exit ended when he turned to Desiree Perez, a Manhattan nightclub manager with a lengthy criminal record and close links to hip-hop mogul Jay Z."

While Perez is not an employee, officer or agent of Jay Z’s new agency, Roc Nation Sports, sources say she is a major behind-the-scenes influence.

“She’s directly involved with the athletes,” one baseball insider said. “She has a lot of power.”

While sources say Perez was behind much of A-Rod’s failed legal and PR strategy last summer, Rodriguez describes her only as a “long-time friend.” (long article - read the whole thing if you want to)
It's not complicated. Alex Rodrigues reputation is undergoing a rehabilitation. If he is to become a brand again, after reinstatement, this is an essential phase of his rehabilitation. Somebody needs to be blamed, a narrative developed, explaining his decision to fight MLB.

Desiree Perez is apparently being used as a piece of the PR puzzle.

Desiree Perez used to be my cousin's common law wife. They had children together.

Sometime in the mid 90's my causing died in a paragliding accident.

Imagine my surprise when I went I glanced at the papers at the Quick-Mart and see my cousin's ex in the sport's back page.

Last time I saw Desiree was at my cousin's funeral.

They used to live in a nice house in Leona. I watched the Dallas Buffalo Bills superbowl at their house.

They're all thugs to me.

Perez was a 26-year-old mother of young children in 1994 when she was arrested in New York..

My father says the kids stayed with their grandma, his sister, when she went to jail.

My cousin was dead by then.

Lem, you must have enjoyed this boy faking out the grownup blonds behind him by giving them a foul ball tossed to him in the stands.

Or did he?

It's all over the place, but comments here are hilarious.

There is no redemption for A Rod. His place in history was cemented when he made his unfortunate comments regarding the Captain in Sports Illustrated.

If you are a Yankee you have to have the Yankee fans 100% in your corner because every other baseball fan will hate you because you are a Yankee. This is the same thing as what happened to Reggie Jackson. When he dissed a "True Yankee" (Thurman) he lost the respect of real Yankee fans and he never got it back. That is where A Rod is. And he can't change it.

She is having a bad month.

I don't care what A-Rod says about the captain. Love will keep him and Tennille together.

john said...

Mama always told me to stay away from girls named Candy, Brandi, Tiffany, Honey, Star, Jade, Cherokee, and Desiree.

Trooper York said...

Actually john they are getting divorced. She dumped him after he got sick and couldn't give her that Muskrat love anymore. The bitch.

Trooper York said...

Oh and one more thing. Lem you have to change your comment policy.

Delete: Keep it Civil.

Add: Keep it Common Law.

Trooper York said...
