The former Yankees slugger’s girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez, posted the photo on Instagram with the caption: “Ooooh . . . just my Macho and Mr. President hanging out backstage . . . @arod and @barackobama.”  

The smile on Alex Rodriguez’s face says it all as he posed for a picture with former President Obama at the sports analytics conference hosted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology over the weekend.  

I remember a time when A-Rod, one of the most talented and controversial figures in of all baseball, was hated by most. Now look at him. What a turn around.

Of course this isn’t the first time A-Rod has been in the presence of Obama. The Yanks visited the White House for their World series stop. Memories.
