Whether it’s in the store, talking to the hot-dog man, or even buddying up with the nearest doorman, the conversation this morning surrounded A-Rod’s 3,000 hit. Remarkably, he added to the conversation while homering to notch the epic milestone.

The this we speak of is the backlash from the unforgiving New York media.

Check out the back-pages of both the NY Daily News and the NY Post this morning:

Hey, receiving the curtain-call at Yankee Stadium after the moment is one thing, allowing that warm and fuzzy momentum to continue is another story.
