Derek jeter who is he dating
While I would strongly disagree with both of these statements, I understand the frustration with the parade of goodbye tributes that have made 2014 into one giant Farewell Jeter tour.
I understand the ire, but I find the criticisms as unconvincing as the allegations that Jeter murmurs his own name during oral trysts.
Critics have argued his legendary fielding plays–the flip, the dive–may look great on Sports Center, but his acrobatics can’t mask the fact his fielding may have hurt the Yankees.
Others have argued that he was never really that great, and the sports world has made a big fuss over nothing.
On Opening Day 2002, Christie Lee Wilcox earned herself a criminal trespass charge when she jumped out of the third-base stands to rush to the shortstop with a piece of paper with her phone number on it.
She also earned the scorn of every tri-state area woman who wished she had the balls to come within arm’s reach of the hot shortstop.
That one seemed a bit far-fetched anyways because, as author Chris Smith notes, “Even if Jeter were cheesy enough to have handed out souvenirs, he’s far too careful to have made that kind of mistake.”Besides, the gift bag peccadillo is the least skeevy of Jeter’s alleged bedroom behavior.
Few things are as devastating to a female New Yorker born in the late 1980s as discovering she’s too old to date Derek Jeter (because youth was the one thing stopping the Captain from us).But in addition to being a really damn good hitter and making some jaw-droppingly stunning plays that have earned him a guaranteed spot in Cooperstown, Jeter charmed the New York sports media, whose glare ranges from irritating to debilitating (hey there, A-Rod).And, as the Post and the Daily News started taking notice of the 22-year-old Kalamazoo native in 1996 (the year he’d cruise to American League Rookie of the Year), the Big Apple found its new celebrity crush.There are a lot of women who wishes they could even be mentioned as rumored fiancée of Derek Jeter, though.It’s hard to think of another baseball player in recent memory whose batting stance made so many fans weak at the knees.
