A-Rod Lawyer Melts Down On Today

A-Rod's lawyer Joe Tacopina "would love nothing more" than to defend A-Rod and to talk about his testing history. If only MLB would be kind enough to waive the confidentiality agreement in the joint-drug agreement!

Well, at the beginning of an interview on the Today show this morning, Matt Lauer revealed that MLB—in clever, twisted fashion—sent a letter "overnight" saying they'd do exactly that. Tacopina, unprepared for this news, promptly short circuits. This clip is essentially the A-Rod saga as performance art. Lionel Hutz would be proud.
