Roberto Alomar, the All-Star second basemen who played major league baseball for seven teams over a 17-year career, is being sued by a former girlfriend who claims he had unprotected sex even though he knew he had AIDS.  I think a good response here is HOLY SHIT.

In papers filed in state and federal court, Dall said Alomar finally got tested in January 2006 while suffering from a cough, fatigue and shingles. “The test results of him being HIV-positive was given to him… on or about Feb.6, 2006,” the $15 million negligence suit says.

Nine days later, the couple went to see a disease specialist who discovered a mass in the retired second baseman’s chest, the court papers say.  Alomar’s skin had turned purple, he was foaming at the mouth and a spinal tap “showed he had full-blown AIDS,” the suit says.

Man, I don’t know about this story.  It’s kind of a lot to handle first thing in the morning.  AIDS, dude.  What do you do when you find out someone you know has AIDS?  I mean, besides get tested.  Do you call them?  Do you send them a card?  “Don’t get worse soon”?
