Update: Derek Jeter is a class act

Derek-Jeter-classy

I think we can all certainly agree that worldly Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter should be commended for "taking the high road" and agreeing with Brian Cashman that they will not discuss his contract situation until season's end.

Simply put, abiding by an organizational policy that's been in place since 1998 is not only courageous, it's downright storybook.

True sports fans worldwide should be playing magical tunes on the skin flute this afternoon in the name of Derek Jeter; if they haven't already.

    He’s so committed to the Yankees he announced he won’t grow his annual ZZ Top beard until Thanksgiving.

    Though considering Joba has been crop-dusting the clubhouse with more regularity than one of those timed Glade air fresheners, perhaps a psych-eval is prudent for anyone who WANTS to stay in that dugout. I mean, the air inside the Yankees clubhouse is more toxic now than when Reggie Jackson and Billy Martin settled their differences with a “blue-flamer” contest after a chili-cookoff (the TRUE meaning behind the name “The Bronx is Burning”).

    It’s not courageous or storybook. Where else is he going to get more money? He’s a god to the Yankee fans, why would he burn the good will. He’ll be taken care of, and he knows that. He’ll continue to be paid like the overrated player he is.

    What a crock of shit Hernia. You know damn well that male Yankees fans in New York plus their buttbuddies over at ESPN are the only ones playing the skin flute every time the Jeter is mentioned. To try to carry that over to “true sports fans” everywhere is just typical East Coast fuck high-horsing as usual.

    You all Yankee fucks go on and high horse hard fuck yourselves!
