Alex Rodriguez was tailgating at the Notre Dame-Michigan game

Tuesday September 9th, 2014

Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez seems to be making the most of his year-long suspension. Or should we say "year-long vacation"?

The last time we saw A-Rod he was eating corn. Before that he was meeting Malcolm Gladwell and playing in a mariachi band.

On Saturday, A-Rod continued his retirement preview by taking in the Notre Dame-Michigan game.

And A-Rod didn't show up an hour late and watch the game from a luxury box. No, A-Rod, always a man of the people, spent his evening tailgating with regular folks.

If he gets to do all this fun stuff, will he even bother coming back to the Yankees next year?
