A Chicago Sun-Times report yesterday indicated Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez "went ballistic" over being shown on television being fed popcorn by his girlfriend, actress Cameron Diaz, during Sunday's Super Bowl.

The story said that after being shown on Fox in a luxury box at Cowboys Stadium, A-Rod then got a guarantee he would not be televised again.

Today's Ottawa Citizen reports that Fox has apologized, although a spokesman said he was unaware of A-Rod bringing his concern to the network's attention.

"In no way, shape or form would we ever intend to show a celebrity in any type of negative manner on this or any other of our broadcasts," Fox spokesman Dan Bell said. "These shots are purely random and were just used to show the audience all of the unique personalities who were in attendance to watch this great game."
