While the paper doesn’t seem eager to draw attention to it, New York Times columnist Michael Powell has a scoop today: Derek Jeter is connected, at a degree of remove, to what recent Al Jazeera reporting presents as a doping ring that allegedly provided Peyton Manning, James Harrison, and Ryan Howard, among others,…
The fun and beauty of Derek Jeter gossip isn’t in its truthfulness—it’s that it can go so far while still remaining plausible, which says more about the Jeter mythos than an accurate rumor ever could. Jeter’s engaged now, but he took a minute to finally address one of the more famous rumors from his single days.
The Players' Tribune—the number one sports website for boring, ghostwritten first person accounts from athletes—is having (or perhaps more accurately, had) Darnell Dockett tweet from their Twitter account today:
“Derek” is thinking about his next step. “Russell” wants to make a difference. “Danica” updates her relationship status. “Blake” is really glad his creepy boss is gone.
Choire Sicha is the only one here talking any sense: "For far too long now, sports stars haven't been able to properly benefit from the labors of their production (of dick pics). Now, thanks to Jeter, they can take the correct ownership of monetizing their intellectual property (dick pics)." [Digiday]
Before Derek Jeter's emotional last game at Yankee Stadium, CBS Sports radio host Damon Amendolara brought his Yankees-fan producer, Shaun Morash, on the air to talk about Jeter's impending retirement. The tears came pretty quickly.
Today seems like as good a day as any to draw your attention back to the dumbest story ever written about Derek Jeter.
After tonight—or as of yesterday, depending on the rain—Derek Jeter will have played his final game in Yankee Stadium. It's as fine a time as any to note, for the record, that Derek Jeter was an OK ballplayer. He was pretty good at playing baseball, overall, and he did it for a pretty long time.
The Jeter slurping gets metaphysical: "Wherever he goes, whether it's second base or somewhere else, everyone is expecting him to be Derek Jeter, and he always delivers." [NYT]
Today, a tipster sent us a bit of gossip about Derek Jeter's sex life that comes from what he claims to be a very reliable source. This gossip is likely no more true than similar stories we've come across in the past, but we really, really want it to be true.
On Thursday, The Gatorade Company Inc.—a marketing shop with a secondary concern in the manufacture and distribution of sweetened salt water—released an advertisement featuring Derek Jeter, one of the worst players in baseball.
If you've ever wanted to know what Derek Jeter's regal face might look like as a five-acre corn maze, today is your lucky day. A New Jersey farm decided that instead of some boring-ass corn maze for kids to get lost in—while their parents wonder how they found themselves at 45 years old, wasting 10 bucks and a crisp…
Welcome to the harsh reality of life, kid. There's always someone younger and cuter than you and they will always get the cool shit you want.
Since everyone knows this is Derek Jeter's last season, teams are putting on special ceremonies (like they did with Mariano Rivera) for Jeets, where they give him gifts and make donations to his charity. Tonight is the last time Derek Jeter will be playing a regular season game in Texas (hey, you never know), so…
Ichiro Suzuki hit his first home run of the season last night, a three-run homer that put the Yankees on top of the Blue Jays 6-4. It was Ichiro's first home run in almost a full calendar year, and as he approached the dugout, Jeter gave him the who are you and what have you done with Ichiro? look. And then busted…
Derek Jeter does not support arguing balls and strikes.
This is Bruce Drennan, a Cleveland sportscaster who hosts a call-in radio show called All Bets Are Off. During yesterday's show, a guy—a plant? an actual yokel?—called in and asked Drennan if he thought there was any chance that Derek Jeter might end up on the Indians. Much exasperation ensued, as did a mock…
