Alex Rodriguez Skips Derek Jeter Jersey Retirement to Eat with Jennifer Lopez

Alex Rodriguez had things to do other than support his ex-teammate Derek Jeter on Sunday. 

Jeter was honored with a jersey retirement ceremony at Yankee Stadium, which was packed with fans of No. 2 and many of his former teammates.

But one was obviously missing. As TMZ reported, Rodriguez was dining downtown with his new girlfriend, actress/singer Jennifer Lopez. 

This was perhaps no surprise, given the animosity between the two legends over the last decade and even recently

A-Rod's presence at Jeter's event could have been a bit awkward. Almost as awkward as Rodriguez blatantly skipping it while in town.
