I am not a big baseball fan – I enjoy the occasional game, but prefer my sports a little more fast-paced and rough and tumble. When I do watch baseball, I like to see the Yankees lose….pro0bably like a whole lot of other people. In fact, The NY Yankees recently topped the list of most hated MLB teams, but what’s really interesting is that they also topped the list of most LOVED teams as well. There’s no gray area here!
I do like Derek Jeter. He’s not only a great player, but one of those guys who can also enjoy a laugh at his own expense. He’s always featured in those SNL sports specials – remember “Derek Jeter’s Taco Hole”? Anywhoodles, Jeter is sponsored by Nike’s Jordan brand, so they did a two-minute ad full of celebrities to send him off, including Spike Lee, Rudy Giuliani, Billy Crystal, Tiger Woods, Jay Z . . . and even some Red Sox players and fans.
No matter what hat you wear, tip it to The Captain. #RE2PECT.
