Even Birds Hate A-Rod

OK, well not THAT A-Rod.

A young Red Sox fan from Connecticut was clipped by a hawk while taking the tour of Fenway Park yesterday and sustained a minor cut to her scalp. She was treated at a local hospital and released, and will be fine.

Her name: Alexa Rodriguez.

She was part of a group taking the tour of the park when a hawk, who had a nest in an overhang near the press box, spotted them. When the tour got to about 40 feet of the nest, the hawk came at them, and scratched the unfortunate girl on the head. The nest was removed later in the day by state wildlife officials.

I can't help but think there's a message in there somewhere for that guy who plays third base for the Yankees.

That's freak-a-licious! I feel sorry for the poor girl, but the coincidence of the names is spooky!
