A face in the crowd at Lambeau Field during Saturday night’s 49ers-Packers NFL playoff game: Alex Rodriguez. With a Packers wool cap on his head.
Oh, and he was dancing. Kind of.

Fox Sports did a brief cross-promotion with one of its MLB studio hosts in the fourth quarter. The original A-Rod watched as the other A-Rod, Aaron Rodgers, tried unsuccessfully to guide the Pack to a snowy victory in the divisional round. The camera zoomed in on Rodriguez and, it was believed, a companion as he rocked to music from the PA system. Or maybe he was just trying to stay warm on a freezing Wisconsin night.
Whatever he did, Rodriguez made it to TV, and the internet finally had something to say with this game (OK, there was a lot to say, but goofy-looking Rodriguez was more interesting for much of the ‘net).

Not least because Rodriguez was in enemy sporting territory. Don’t forget, he owns a big chunk of the NBA’s Timberwolves, who reside next door in hated Minnesota. Rodgers bought a piece of defending NBA champion Bucks a while back.
And because he may have played up front with the Packers in the middle game.
Other random reactions to Rodriguez spending a night in the frozen tundra:
I have absolutely no doubt that this appearance was totally staged by Fox and A-Rod. It’s 13° and he has nothing covering his neck or face? Don’t buy it. pic.twitter.com/i3R7u9TdXc
