I used to have a very unique piece of Derek Jeter-related sports memorabilia.
When I was in high school, my family drove to Toronto to see the Yankees play the Blue Jays, and we stayed overnight in the same hotel as our fave New York team. Somehow, we figured out which room Jeter was staying in, so my cousin (who had a crush on him) and I snuck upstairs to snoop around. We found sitting in front of his hotel room door an empty pizza box, waiting to be cleared away by housekeeping. We saved them the trouble… I held onto that pizza box for YEARS. (FYI, Derek Jeter doesn’t eat the crusts.)
Recently, the gossips and naysayers would have you believe that not only does Jeter, in fact, eat the crusts too but has perhaps become a little too intimate with food in general. After some unflattering photos of the long-time Yankees shortstop (who recently broke his ankle) surfaced in Miami, the New York Post immediately began to call him “Derek Eater” and “Captain Munch”. How rude! Mostly because it’s completely untrue… and we can prove it!
Although doctor’s orders were for Jeter to rest during his ankle rehab – making it difficult to work out – as you can see from the pics below, taken with the MLB Network’s Harold Reynolds, the legendary ballplayer is still looking lean and mean as ever!
You heard it here first, folks – while the haters speculate and make fun, YH tells it like it is!
