Perspective

After the debacle with the Celtics' draft lottery results, a little perspective may be in order. Derek Jeter just passed Joltin' Joe DiMaggio on the Yankees' career hit list.




















That's the Yankee Captain passing the Yankee Clipper with the first of his 3 hits tonight on his way to helping the Yankees take 2 out of 3 from the Sox. 9.5 games...

Yes, but how does this relate to American Idol?

Jeter got to third base with Haley Scarnato.

The Yankees still play baseball?

What happened to your fat walrus "yankee killer"?

Dan, it is widely known that Haley Scarnato got to third base with 6 of the various cameras on American Idol-- not the cameramen, the cameras themselves.

Jeter shouldn't brag about Haley.

Dan said...

Yes, but I've never gotten to third base with Haley Scarnato. Can I not live vicariously through the imagined sexual exploits of my Hall of Fame shortstop? Must I settle for Matsui and his world renowned porn collection?

Ewww...

Anyway - only about 100 hits to pass Bernie, I think?

Dan said...

Yes, something like that. He should end up with the most hits in Yankee history, as long as they re-sign him to another contract after this one. I think he'll get to 3000.
