A-Rod Poker Problem? You Bet!

Until now, I thought that Alex Rodriguez was a bright guy. It turns out that he could be the dumbest jock in the history of professional sport. I say this because he has so much to lose. I also say this because in 2005, his employer (The Yankees) and the league (MLB) warned him about his gambling.

He's accused of playing in illegal poker games. These are not your typical Friday night games with your buddies. No, these would be high stakes games, held in Beverly Hills. The games are the type that involve hundreds of thousands of dollars. Actors Ben Affleck, Tobey McGuire and Leonardo DiCaprio have been linked to such activity.

The investigation has yet to begin. Witnesses have already gone "public."

Right about now, A-Rod could use a pair of aces.
