Alex Rodriguez had hip surgery

Jan 16, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

Alex Rodriguez had his long-awaited hip surgery today. And the doctors said afterward that the surgery was a horrible disaster. had to remove the hip and replace it with a piece of ivory and fit Rodriguez with special brace that will cause him excruciating pain for the rest of his days.

Haha, just kidding. It was a success. Athlete surgeries are always a success:

 

That’s around the All-Star break to you and me.

    We should note that they actually didn’t say “it was a success.” A rare moment of the correct use of language? Or a fear that at this point in A-Rod’s career, success is not a word used lightly?

      Does sound like they were giving themselves some wiggle room.

        That would only stress the ligaments again. Rotation room is what they need.

    It must be hard to do surgery on a Centaur.

        Arod should use the time off for Hair Club for men for his receeding hairline
