A-Rod being A-Rod: Page Six, Food, Jordan

In a new blog feature, we will chronicle Alex Rodriguez being Alex Rodriguez -- the good, the bad and the A-Rodian.

This comes courtesy of the New York Post's Page Six.

Alex Rodriguez is bringing his own food to restaurants in order to watch his diet as he prepares for spring training in Florida. The Yankee slugger was spotted at the Mondrian Hotel pool in South Beach on Saturday afternoon having lunch with girlfriend Torrie Wilson. But A-Rod didn’t order from the menu — sources say he’s following a special high-protein diet and travels with a cooler of his own grub. Rodriguez was seen asking a waitress to heat up his special meal in the kitchen, while Wilson nibbled on the poolside cafe’s chips and guacamole. A-Rod’s rep declined to comment.

The item goes on to detail how A-Rod and Derek Jeter partied at Michael Jordan's surprise 49th birthday. Just more fun in the life and times of Alex Rodriguez.
