Following a four game sweep in the ALCS and an untimely fractured ankle, New York Yankees captain and shortstop Derek Jeter was seen flirting with an attractive female at a Manhattan bar. The bar, located in Manhattan’s trendy Tribeca, is frequented by athletes and celebrities alike. But no one expected an effort of this magnitude from the icon of modern baseball.
“In the twenty years I’ve known Derek, I’ve never seen such an effort in the public spectrum. To be honest, I was a little embarrassed,” said Jeter’s wingman on the night in question, who wishes to remain nameless. “Even I’ve adapted the ability to pick up his scraps without the need to exchange cordial words of any kind with the female prey.”
Derek is well known for his womanizing, having been linked to numerous A list celebrities and models including: Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, and Alyssa Milano. His status as a stellar bachelor has never been in question in the past. However, after this weekend’s blatant display of public affection for what was described as a 9.5 out of ten, many Yankees fans have reasons for concern. Perhaps this could take away from the All Star’s play on the field. With the Yankees continuing to struggle in the post season, this is the last thing fans need to hear for 2013.
“If Jeters out there having to actually talk to hot chicks, it takes away from his concentration on the field. What’s wrong with this broad? Didn’t she know who she was talking to?” exclaimed die-hard Yankees fan, Joe Rossi. “And if Jeters gotta flirt to get some action, what hope do the rest of us have? ARod I can see doing something like this, but Jeter? It’s just a sad day for baseball.”
In response to the heavy criticism, Jeter had this to say, “I’ve seen it done in movies and television programs, but never knew the intricacies of actually having to impress a girl with words and such. It’s given me a lot of respect for my fans and hard working single guys around the world. I just hope I’ll never have to go through this humiliating experience again and will be happy to return matters to the status quo – a simple wink and a nod.”
On a positive note, Jeter did reject the girl for making him speak and was seen leaving the bar with a solid ten later that night.
