I can understand baseball looking into Alex Rodriguez and his alleged participation in illegal high stakes poker games. I can also understand the media following the story closely.
However, I've been reading about A-Rod playing high stakes poker at a casino in Pennsylvania recently and I don't see a problem with that.
There is a difference, the main one being that if you play poker in a casino it is a legal activity.
Plus, everyone keeps mentioning high stakes poker. I did myself in this brief post. High stakes to you and me is probably different to Rodriguez. If A-Rod loses 50K in a poker game it is like most people losing $100. Not a big deal. Shoot, he could lose a million dollars in a poker game and not lose a bit of sleep over it.
If he's in a casino gambling, leave him alone. If he's hanging out in a celebrities mansion gambling with other celebrity rich folk, look the other way. If he's hanging out with unsavory degenerates in some basement in a bad area...well, then their could be problems.
