SI Announces A-Rod’s Funeral

With its latest cover, Sports Illustrated has announced Alex Rodriguez’s funeral. Not only is that photo of A-Rod unflattering, there’s the copy — “The last days of A-Rod,” “Nothing dies pretty,” “The end is pain, and pain is ugly.” Yikes. Poor A-Rod. So insanely rich, and so insane.

The accompanying article is penned by S.L. Price, but no doubt Brian Cashman offered his services as well.
