No, BBC, That Is Not A Cake

The Yankees held a storm-shortened ceremony last night before pushing A-Rod out the door, and as the heavens opened up they thrust a base into his arms that had been signed by Rodriguez’s teammates. A-Rod’s retirement being a major international sports story, it earned coverage from the likes of the BBC—which mistook the base for cake.

Somebody at the BBC must be hungry.
