You may not get Derek Jeter’s phone numbers but the New York Yankees slugger gives gift baskets to his one night stands. According to the New York Post, “Derek has girls stay with him at his apartment in New York, and then he gets them a car to take them home the next day. Waiting in his car is a gift basket containing signed Jeter memorabilia, usually a signed baseball.”
After a well publicized break up with his long time girlfriend actress Minka Kelly this summer, Jeter is a little rusty in the dating game. He made the mistake of regifting a second gift basket to a girl he had forgotten he had hooked up with before.
But don’t feel too bad, an autographed baseball is worth $250!
Derek Jeter’s season maybe over with the New York Yankees, but his relationship with Minka Kelly has gone into extra innings. The couple was spotted in Miami together over the weekend having breakfast at Morgans South Beach. A source told the New York Post, “They are trying to see what the future holds for them. They may eventually get back together. This was not some sort of final conversation and meeting between them.”
After marriage rumors, Kelly and Jeter threw fans a curve ball when they broke up in August after three years together. Kelly is currently on location in Miami, filming her new show “Charles Angels” on ABC. After the breakup, Kelly was linked to her costar Ramon Rodriguez.
Last Thursday the Yankees were eliminated from the playoffs by the Detroit Tigers, but at least Jeter is not striking out off the field.
Brad Pitt’s Moneyball is the story of a baseball GM who defeys the odds and builds a contending team with a limited payroll. Watch this trailer spoof to see what the film would like if it was made about the New York Yankees opposed to the Oakland As.
Burqas are not often associated with romance, but one newlywed jersey chasing couple have decided to spend their honeymoon in Afghanistan…. and I know what you’re thinking, it’s not Kim Kardashian! New York Yankees Nick Swisher and actress Joanna Garcia has decided to spend their honeymoon in Afghanistan visiting the troops.
Swisher told The New York Post, “Three military officers came to the Yankee locker room and asked if any of us would like to visit the troops. My hand went straight up, I said, ‘I’m in.’ I knew Joanna would want to go. It will be our first trip since we got married. I come from a military family … and no matter what your views are, these men and women are out there risking everything for us. I realize how fortunate I have been, so I like to give back at every opportunity I can.”
While the couple married in December, with Swisher’s busy baseball schedule and Garcia filming the ABC sitcom Better With You (which was canceled this spring) the couple have yet to go on their honeymoon.
“We are both really looking forward to visiting the troops,” Garcia said. “Yes, it isn’t a traditional honeymoon, but it is something we both feel strongly about. We’ll probably make a stop in Europe on our way back.”
