Along with A-Rod endorsement of SMACKIN' Sunflower Seeds, the viral video is spreading quickly across other social media and news outlets.
Barstool Sports recently wrote the following article about the A-Rod encounter:
"Absolutely wild move. He likely playing this up for the cameras, but this is an insane move. Eating seeds in the dugout or while watching a game is a sacred past time. I cannot recall ever going to the Little League snack stand without getting seeds. I cannot recall my dad ever watching us down the baselines without a fresh bad of seeds. I still remember my mom getting mad washing our baseball pants and having a pocket full of seeds from the previous game. They don't even fill up your appetite, but you have to have them it's a tradition.
A-Rod's method here is insane. INSANE. What a mess. Wastes the whole bag, risks choking by having one go all the way to the back of his throat. Preposterous move by the man. It has to be a show. There's no way on earth someone eats seeds like this. Also, if you believe Cano copied this method , you are a fool. No chance. I now need to see vintage footage of A-Rod eating seeds to prove he's lying here. Someone call up the YES network and break out the tapes."
Sunflower seeds have become an iconic part of baseball culture, with players of all levels enjoying them both on and off the field. Whether it's for their taste, nutritional value, or simply as a way to keep busy during a game, it's hard to imagine a baseball game without the satisfying sound of shells being cracked and seeds being "smacked" around. So the next time you're watching a game or playing yourself, don't forget to grab a bag of SMACKIN' Sunflower Seeds and join in on this beloved tradition that A-Rod enjoys!
