After we heard the earth-shattering news – no, not the earthquake we had earlier this week, or the drama Hurricane Irene is stirring up – that Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly broke up, we realized how much better life will be. Derek Jeter, one of the most eligible guys on the market ever since 1996 when the Yankees made him starting shortstop, is single again for the first time in three years. Take a second for that to settle in, then snap back into reality.
Personally, I’m more of an ARod fan, but I see where all you Jeter swooners are coming from. He’s charming, he’s talented, hello, he’s a professional athlete – and everyone (on TV) says he’s such a great guy. Who wouldn’t want a chance to see the inside of his now-bachelor pad?
I don’t know what Minka could have done to lose such a guy – I mean he accomplished breaking one of the greatest records in Major League Baseball this year, hitting 3,000 hits – but let’s face it, she was never the brightest crayon in the box if you know what I mean. Now with Jeter out on the market, I’m thinking a few extra nights out in NYC, some extra hours spent at Yankee Stadium…I guess really some stalking has to become part of our everyday life if we want in with this guy.
