Derek Jeter is a lot of things, one of the best shortstops of all time, a sure fire Hall of Famer, and a World Champion among many other things. One thing he isn’t though is interesting.
Jeter gives some of the most boring, cliche filled interviews in all of sports. Don’t get me wrong, it’s part of what makes him great especially when across the lockeroom is a guy, Alex Rodriguez, who has reached infamous levels with all of the times he has stuck his foot in his mouth.
That all makes the latest Jeter story by Emily Smith and Tara Palmeri of the NY Post all that much better. The guy who never lets us in on his personal life, the guy whose apartment looked almost completely empty in a recent HBO documentary actually has a personality. And it is hilarious.
According to The Post’s story Jeter is a love-em and leave-em type who doesn’t just let his dates go home empty handed. The morning after his romps he calls the girl a cab that shows up with a gift basket containing autographed baseballs of all things. Even better, he does this so often that he lost track and did it for the same girl twice! My hero.
I’d love to see one of these Derek Jeter booty call gift baskets to show up on Ebay.
