Trump Says He Would Fire A-Rod

Speaking as both a Yankees fan and an A-Rod detractor, Trump told Michael Kay on ESPN NewYork 98.7 FM Tuesday afternoon, “I would terminate his contract, personally. I think George would’ve done that. I would terminate his contract on the basis that when he signed, he didn’t say that he took drugs.

Told it would be difficult to terminate A-Rod’s contract given how strong the MLB Players’ Association is, Trump responded, “I disagree. It’s called misrepresentation. He never told the Yankees he was all juiced up. That all came out after he signed his contract.

Here's a question: Is there a single-topic on which Donald Trump's opinion matters to me? I can't imagine there is, but I'm willing to be convinced otherwise.

The answer is no, though the New York tabloids who initially inflated his PR balloon would never admit it. Trump makes Paris Hilton seem relevant.

The answer is yes, because his opinions are very valuable. If he says ARod's contract can be terminated, it can't. If he says it will be sunny, bring an umbrella.

He could probably give good advice on how to inherit millions of dollars from your dad and turn that into a huge PR machine to keep the spotlight on yourself long after you have stopped being relevant.

We mock the hair, but in all serious...why would any guy do that? They own mirrors, don't they? They have to see how awful it looks. Meanwhile, Michael Chiklis, of all people, does just fine by going the bald route.

Headmaster at my high school did a horrible comb-over. I mean, it just looked silly. He also coached soccer, and when the wind kicked up his comb-over would stand straight up in the breeze. Dude, you're the ####### headmaster and you're trying to somehow maintain respect from teenagers, and THAT'S your choice?

Anyway, I've just never understood the decision to go with a comb-over or a hairpiece. I have committed to my wife that I will deal with hair loss gracefully.

Maybe Trump should just offer to buy A-Rod's remaining contract so that he'd actually have some standing to "fire" him. The two girls could then settle it in court while the Yanks use the money to look elsewhere for a replacement.

is there ANY female of ANY age/race who thinks it is HOTTT or prefers it to bald?

as for "firing" guys on a baseball team - this is why guys who make zillions/inherit zillions are really lousy baseball GMs - see, for example, drayton mclane

trump has NO idea what a collectively bargained agreement is. it's like he can't understand when people win the lottery and get guaranteed payments for 20 years can't have their payments stopped if they spend the money on something he personally disapproves of.

i can't figure out how a person who is as stupid as trump is can be/stay that rich

Way back when I played racquetball there was a bald guy in my league who was in his early 50s. I knew he was a salesman. One day as I was leaving, I saw him sitting in his car adjusting his rug. I assume that he spent some bucks on it, based on his car (some kind of sharp Mercedes). I'd say it took 10-12 years off his looks. Otherwise, any hairpiece I've seen looks horrible.

But not as horrible as the combover. I really when the hair is parted about 1mm above the top of the ear.

I was recently at a conference with a guy who had a pretty impressive comb-over. He built up the front into kind of a peak, so it was almost like a pompadour. I'm sure it takes him the better part of an hour every morning to do his hair like that.

And still, it was obviously a comb-over. He looked like the kind of guy who'd gotten shot down in a Holiday Inn lounge in every state in the nation.

Has anybody from his stupid reality show actually gone on to do anything in business? I know the first guy married the E! talk show host and they have a reality show, but has he or anyone actually been successful in business because of Trump?

At least that short-lived Richard Branson show gave us the girl that made Spanx.

I started losing my hair slowly but early. When I was 26 I just decided to shave the whole thing. One of the best decisions I've ever made. When I look back at pictures of me from ages 24-26 I can't believe I went out looking like that. No combover but still....

The combovers that Bill Murray and Woody Harrelson rocked in Kingpin were pretty amazing.
   16. The Good Face Posted: October 17, 2012 at 12:06 PM (#4273983)
Back in the 90s, I worked for a tech-heavy company that had a ton of middle aged engineers in the office; we could have assembled an All Comb-over softball team. One guy was even rocking the seldom seen back-to-front comb-over.

Unfortunately, that was pretty much the golden age of comb-overs. They seem increasingly rare, at least in the Northeast.

Well, Lisa, this probably isn't the best place to ask that question, but certainly every woman I've ever asked has responded the same.

Thing is, guys (as a general rule) can get away with the aging hair thing WAY better than the ladies can. Or at least that's what my wife tells me. Her hair started graying in her early twenties; she's been coloring it ever since. Meanwhile, I'm...let's just say not quite 50, and I have pretty silver temples and some silver strands here and there, but it's as thick (and has the same hairline) as when I was in high school. I haven't even considered coloring it; I'm totally cool with it just going silver (and fortunately it seems to be silver and not a dingy gray).

My wife thinks it sucks that I can do that and look "distinguished" (her word), whereas she cannot (so she tells me; in 23 years of marriage I have yet to see her hair uncolored).

If for some reason I were single, I might -- MIGHT -- consider taking the gray out, if only because I have something of a baby face anyway and, if clean-shaven, can pass for 10-15 years younger pretty easily. Assuming that 10-15 years younger was my target audience, anyway, which strikes me as unlikely.

But it's hard to imagine a confluence of events that would push me towards a comb-over or piece, no matter what my hair decides to do. (With this post I've no doubt jinxed everything, and can therefore expect to develop male pattern baldness within a fortnight.)

It's more than just a comb-over, though. There's this inter-weaving effect that gives it a bit of heft, almost like it's real hair in a natural shape. I'd seriously watch a, say, half-hour documentary about Trump's hairstyling. That thing is an architectural achievement.

While I definitely agree with her that it's more difficult for ladies to make graying hair look good, there are at least some counter-examples. Emmylou Harris, for one.

(Of course, that's a bit of an exception that proves the rule. One of the most beautiful women and talented, charismatic performers of her generation makes the silver/gray hair look awesome. So, just be Emmylou Harris. Easy. It'd be sort of like citing Jim Morrison as evidence that guys with hair past their shoulders look super hot.)

Yeah. I'm not at all ashamed to say I'd watch that documentary. Trump being Trump, there's probably a non-zero chance such a documentary will actually be made.

Anybody seen Rene Levesque's combover?

He was Premier of Quebec in the 70s and he had a great combover. In the 60s it was a pretty standard corporate combover, but when the 70s hit and he grew out his hair it took on a life of its own.

I don't think I'd ever do a combover and I just think rocking a piece would be more hassle than I want to deal with -- I mean, if you're doing the piece and meet someone, how exactly does that conversation go?

You build a convoluted network of lies upon lies to keep the charade in place. Eventually, through a wacky series of misunderstandings, it all ends in hugs and lessons learned about loving people for who they really are. Or, alternatively, murder.

Or a charge card/wad of bills?

Heck, I don't even try to hold in my gut around women -- because I know I need to breathe during intimacy...

I do have to admit, though... while my hair has held up reasonably well -- especially upfront -- I've got a thinning friar tuck happening on the top/back. I'm relatively tall, but it does make summers annoying because it's thin enough to get crispy scalp, and then - that inevitably leads to flaking that's impossible to deal with. The other day, I did linger around the rogaine products near the shampoo... but my understanding is that you have to stick with that #### or face acceleration, and I hate products that suck you into commitments.

Why not just lose the gut? Never understood why otherwise healthy men under the age of 50 go around sporting a gut. Rock hard tasty abs, washerboard-style, require a lot of effort, but losing a protruding gut isn't THAT hard.

If it's thinning enough to sunburn, it's probably time to shave it off. Go for it! You'll look more dominant and alpha, especially as a tall guy. Plus you can just slather sunblock directly onto your pate.

Speaking of age 50, anyone have any idea at what point one can be pretty certain that one will not be losing one's hair? I turned 53 a month ago, & from appearances I haven't lost a single strand, so I'm assuming I don't need to wonder about going bald.

It's not something I sit around & worry about either way, but of course I'd prefer for it not to happen.

I'm sure I've jinxed myself horribly by posting this. I'll wake up looking like a cueball tomorrow.

I got in an argument about politics with my mom a few months back (which was strange - it's not a subject we ever discuss) and she was INCREDULOUS when I suggested that no one took Donald Trump seriously. Like, the call was silent for a solid thirty seconds before anyone spoke again.

On hair, I'm losing my locks, but think my head is too dinged up from various injuries to go with the shaved head look. So, while I wouldn't say I'm doing a comb-over, I'm definitely combing my hair in such a way (forward) that pushes some hair over an area where I've now less hair than I used to.

Actually - here's an "I'm happy for me moment" --

I did make a concerted effort starting this past June -- exercising 40 minutes a day 5-6 days a week, eating much better than I ever have -- and I'm proud to say that I'm now down 2 pant sizes, a bit over halfway to my target... the gut is nearly gone and I do feel tons better. It actually started after a Memorial day softball tournament when I realized that playing softball really shouldn't put one that out of breath and sore the next day. The only drawback is the need to do some serious wardrobe restocking, but whatever. Not sure if I'll ever get to washboard ab state - but AM very much looking forward to spring on the lakeshore...

For anyone considering it, I definitely encourage you to give it shot... I can be the laziest SOB on the planet, but I found that once you make a habit out of it -- it gets a ton easier. Don't beat yourself up if you miss a day, just get back on it and before you know it - it becomes as habitual as brushing your teeth. No gym, no purchases --- just an old set of barbells, a blanket for situps, crunches, and pushups and about 30 minutes of googling to find a good set of exercises.

Good for you, well done!

I'm not disciplined enough to do it without a gym membership. Unfortunately I go through ebbs and flows so my weight fluctuates (between way too heavy and just a bit too heavy). I've gotten back on the stick recently and while I've only dropped 7 pounds so far I'm already noticing a difference in my energy level which was really the big motivator for me. Working out/losing weight seems to be one of those things that really is self-replicating. The more I do it the more I want to do it. All afternoon I've been looking forward to my trip to the gym tonight.

There's an article out there somehwere where Jerry Seinfeld said his key to stand-up success was committing to writing one joke a day, everyday, and keeping track of the streak. There were fits and starts at the beginning, but once he pieced together a decent-sized streak, he became possessive of it and kept it alive at all costs.

I have a calendar with lines running through it for several such streaks. It really is effective. It's really surprising how badly the human mind wants to sustain a streak once it reaches a critical length.

   47. madvillain Posted: October 17, 2012 at 06:15 PM (#4274704)
The streak thing is totally true. It's about building momentum. If you eat fast food every day and decide one day maybe not to, in the back of your mind it's just "oh it's just one day what good will that do"! But if suddenly you can manage to stop for a week then it's all "oh I've gone a week let's see how long I can go!". Same is true of exercise.

And on the other point, yea, get right back on the wagon when you fall off. Best advice a trainer ever gave me is "every little bit helps". Whether it's taking the stairs a couple days a week or turning 3-4 beers into 2-3 beers.

That said, I'm approaching 30 and I'm about 20 lbs heavier than I'd like to be. A full time job and a slowing metabolism is not a good combo, especially for a former jock like myself that was always just forced to burn a ton of calories through college. Now I just keep eating like I'm burning 3k a day, when I'm sitting at desk mostly and my workouts are 3 days a week at most.

like you know, like DUHHHHH
it's MY team, i oughtta know

the team went down the drain VERY fast after mclane decided that he should be making all the GM decisions and fired the GM and then installed one yesman after another. by the end of 08 the team and the minor league system was a disaster area, he gave up on the team, sulked and let it get to its current hopeless state. SO hopeless that it is no longer a baseball team

What I find odd about Trump is that, while never hesitant to fire! someone or criticize a public figure, he is also very profuse with his praise, at least on The Apprentice. Its hilarious listening to him tell people like Lil John, Lou Ferrigno or some brainless Real Housewife how much he respects them and how talented they are. He's better at buttering people up than Marlon Brando.

Back in 1991 (I think) I saw a picture of me and I was thinning in back/top. And since then as it thins my haircut gets tighter to the skull as it thins. Of course I am too damn short to even pretend to myself no one is notincing the balding/thinnning. I am told I have a nice head/skull shape though, so there is that. Rocked the beard a while to compensate, and think it looked good until it started greying. Then off it came and wow did I look younger.

I try to work out a couple times a week (been bad the last few months I admit) and keep real active. My weight has been constant since I noticed my clothes were getting tight (and then changed some stuff to drop back down to my "fighting weight"). Washboard abs are beyond me, but no pot or flab or anything. Got to be able to keep up with the boys.

Anybody seen Rene Levesque's combover?


For some reason I read Paul Levesque, and I was like "Triple H has a fine head of hair"

And Trump's reason for it is the same as Brando's...

No doubt!

Self promoting blohard gets made fun of on snarky website devoted to thinking fans.

Obviously he actually meant former WWF wrestler and road agent Rene Goulet, who rocked the skullet for two decades or more.

Good lord. One of my favorite wrestlers as a kid (especially when he teamed up with Billy Red Lyons), back when I used to watch (I think it was called) World Championship Wrestling out of Shreveport. We're talking midway through the first Nixon administration here.

Here's a question: Is there a single-topic on which Donald Trump's opinion matters to me? I can't imagine there is, but I'm willing to be convinced otherwise.


Whether or not things are "yooge"?
