    The ironic thing about it is that two men were stranded in scoring position.

    Coming to SoCal huh? Maybe he's got a meeting with Arte Moreno about dropping that no-trade clause. I know Moreno would LOVE to have ARod.

    BURBANK, Calif. -- A private jet, carrying Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez and six others, overran a runway at Bob Hope Airport on Friday and was brought to a halt by an arresting system.

    "I spoke to Alex. He's fine," agent Scott Boras said.

    None of the seven people aboard was injured, federal officials said.

    The Gulfstream G-II carried five passengers and two crew members, the National Transportation Safety Board said in a statement from Washington.

    The twin-engine jet was stopped by an Engineered Materials Arresting System, a 200-foot-long stretch of pavement injected with air bubbles designed to collapse under the weight of an aircraft as large as a Boeing 737 jet traveling as fast as 50 knots, airport spokesman Victor Gill said.

    "It came to a pretty quick stop," Gill said.

    Damage to the aircraft was minor, the board said.

    An NTSB official was sent to investigate the 11:35 a.m. incident. The board planned to retrieve the cockpit voice recorder, gather radar data and evaluate how well the arresting system worked.

    The aircraft, registered to a Wilmington, Del., corporation, approached from the west and landed on one of the airport's two runways. The runway was closed and reopened at 3:30 p.m. after the plane was moved, Gill said.

    Bob Hope Airport, in the San Fernando Valley north of downtown Los Angeles, is used by seven airlines and private aircraft.

    A Southwest Airlines jet skidded off a runway and crashed through a concrete barrier at the airport in 2000, injuring 43 passengers and the captain. The flight from Las Vegas went too fast and descended at a steep angle when it landed, according to a NTSB report. That jet ended up on a city street near a gas station.

    Friday's incident came just two days after Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle's plane failed to execute a U-turn and slammed into the side of a high-rise in Manhattan, killing Lidle and his flight instructor.

    terrible joke but i heard it today

    How did the NYPD know that it wasn't A-Rod's plane that hit the
    apartment building?

    Because A-Rod can't hit sh*t in October.
