Oddjack is all over the big story this morning: Yankees lipstick model Alex Rodriguez has been chided by Yankees officials for playing cards in those infamous New York City underground poker rooms everyone's always talking about. Supposedly A-Rod has been playing poker under the cover of darkness in games that are always being raided by cops.

Two thoughts on this: One, we have a suspicion that A-Rod is a terrible poker player. Two, now that A-Rod will no longer be going to the games, he can get back to his preferred nighttime activity. So that's nice.
