Tragically hip

Hip to be square

Hip to be square

If you’d told me a few weeks ago that out of A-Rod and Madonna, one of them would be in need of hip surgery, I would’ve put my money on the 64-year-old performing artist. Egg on my face, though — turns out everyone’s favourite Yankee is headed to the disabled list for six-t0-nine weeks. He’s set to have arthroscopic surgery on Monday and is expected to need more surgery in the off-season.

Dr. Marc Philippon, the specialist set to perform the surgery, is saying Rodriguez should be out closer to six weeks than nine, but it’s unknown what effect A-Rod’s rampant steroid use will have on the recovery. Interestingly, the surgery will take place in Vail, Colorado, where another athlete with a tendancy for cheating on his wife had a procedure done in 2003. Will A-Rod be able to avoid the same fate as his Rock Band-playing buddy?
