Poor A-Rod. He's just looking for some quiet time in Vail while getting his hip drained, or labrum re-attached, or toenail scraped, or whatever ailment he has, and then a nosy local snapped this photo.

He looks positively wiped. At least he had the good fashion sense to wear a sweatsuit that matches his lips.

And here's another photo taken, presumably before this lady, Dara, got the nerve to go up to him.

I picture her hiding behind a cash register for five minutes, gesturing toward Rodriguez and mouthing to anyone with in earshot "IS THAT DEREK JETER?"

Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Oh, and if you happen to be a turtle, please be on the lookout for swooping eagles. Jeepers.

Now, go drink something tall, dark, and meddlesome. It's Thursday, dammit.
