A-Roid Field Still a Go

2/11/2009 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A-RoidIt's simple math, really -- $3.9 million is greater than a tarnished legacy.

Everything is still on for Friday's ceremony at the University of Miami to name the new baseball field Alex Rodriguez Field. Lying Liar Field was apparently too cumbersome.

Although A-Roid didn't actually go to UM, he has been close to the program and the entire Miami community and donated $3.9 mil back in 2002. A rep for the school tells us "We are moving forward with the event. The donation was announced at a press conference on Oct. 10, 2002."

In this economy, nobody is about to give back money based on principle.

Well it certainly comforting to know money means more than the truth or cheating by shooting illegal substances into your body to avoid hard work and patience it takes to be a real role model and then you can lie and lie some more about it...Gee what a fine example to show kids ...yes you too can cheat your way to the top and have a place named after you no matter what you have done as long as you got the ca$h to back it up...

when will professional sports teams stop talking out of two sides of their mouths No more random testing make it fair where each player no matter how famed must report to a specific lab given a number so no names will be able to be seen until it is proven they are postive... get blood and urine test for these illegal substances that tear apart the bodies in the long run and make them superman in the short term... so that high school kids looking up to these so called role models wont do the same and they wont be tempted to ...and all the wonderful people who want these beefed up cheats to be entered into the hall of fame that each hall of famer that gets in with positive tests has to have a sign near the name yes I got here by cheating and putting steroids in my system because even though I had some talent I wanted to bypass hard work and determination to get here.

As a UM alumni, I'm embarrassed that the school would go forward with the dedication. But UM, despite having some really fine academic programs, among the best in the nation, is known more for it's myopic athletic programs and criminal sports stars.
