Speaking of surprises….

ALDS Twins Yankees Baseball

Just in case Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize less than nine months into his presidency wasn’t a big enough surprise today, Yankees diva third baseman Alex Rodriguez gave us another one in the bottom of the ninth inning of the Yankees-Twins ALDS game tonight.

A-Rod, known for failing in big spots on the field and being a walking PR disaster off of it, actually got a very clutch hit tonight, belting a two-run, game-tying home run off of Twins’ closer Joe Nathan to force extra innings. The Yankees went on to win, 4-3, on Mark Teixeira’s walk-off solo shot in the 11th.

The Yankees take a 2-0 series lead to Minneapolis, where they can close down the Metrodome and advance to the ALCS with a win on Sunday.

As a friend of mine just said to me, what were the Vegas odds on one of these surprising events happening, let alone both on the same day?
