Since poking fun at Alex Rodriguez is the cool thing to do these days, Boston Sports Clubs gyms decided they’d get in on the action with this ad placed in the Boston Herald this week. If you’ve been living under a rock, A-Rod is currently playing for the Yankees while he appeals the 211-game ban MLB brought down on him for using performance-enhancing drugs. Since steroids are likely out of the question for the third basemen, BSC just figured they’d let him know about their gyms summer sales so he can keep that “A-Bod.” A+ advertising. [Boston Magazine] The post Boston Herald ad trolls A-Rod appeared first on The Nosebleeds.

Ah, yes. A Boston based establishment mocking Alex Rodriguez in today’s Boston Herald? Sounds about right.
If you’re confused about the “losing $34 million?” part of the ad, that’s the amount of money A-Rod stands to lose if the suspension is upheld.
As for the “Join today and keep that A-Bod” line, something tells me that Rodriguez has enough products on hand to keep...
On Tuesday’s front page of the Boston Herald, Boston Sports Club, a Boston-area health club, utilized its advertising space to do a bit of trolling at the expense of the sullied reputation of New York Yankees pariah Alex Rodriguez.
