Are your bases covered?

If you haven't heard, superstar shortstop Alex Rodriguez, formerly of the New York Yankees, is seeking a contract in the ballpark of $350 million dollars. Which makes his previous $270 million dollar deal look like a bargain.

Yes - it's insane.

But to me, he'll always be that rather scary-looking* little boy selling life insurance online.

Actually, I'm pretty certain that's not really him pictured in the ad at left,** but I still say the similarities are unnerving.

What say you?
The similarities are striking
CJ's striking out on this one
Your mom looks like A-Rod

*I think we've all seen those insurance commercials where the cute little kids ask, "What would happen to your family if you died?" But honestly, if I heard this little dude ask that question, I think I'd take it as a threat.
