Source: The Jeter marriage thing is bogus

Jan 11, 2010, 9:58 AM EDT

I’m hearing word that the whole Derek-Jeter-getting-married thing is baloney. The story: it’s Derek Jeter’s sister Sharlee Jeter. 

Not sure if that’s true or not, but (a) the person saying it is in a position to probably know; and (b) is Derek Jeter, the king of p.r. and personal stage management really going to be so lame as to have the date and location of his marriage publicized far and wide by virtue of some half-baked New York Post reporting?

    Derek Jeter, Monday morning, pours himself a cup of coffee and reads the paper trying to shake off the effects of last night’s 3rd bottle of Dom, “I asked her what?”

    That and the bottom of the original article ends with this, but why let facts get in the way:
    “Oh, that’s not Derek Jeter. We wouldn’t use his real name if it were. When the Jonas brother got married here last month, we used a different name.”

    Craig – you’re still in the running!!

    Any newspaper but the New York Post (founded by Alexander Hamilton about a week before Aaron Burr blew him away) would have been embarrassed by a mistake like that, but their legal department reminded them of that great precedent set by their twin-soul Murdoch-menagerie trailer trash in overpriced suits at Fox who recently won a major court decision affirming their right to be utterly fraudulent in their news reporting. (Craig – if I misinterpreted the signifance of that case, please feel free to correct me publicly. My resentment never simmers for more than a week or so when I’m embarrassed like that – as opposed to our pals at the Post, for example.)
    .
    But of the Post correspondents we can remark, along with John Marshall commenting on Thomas Jefferson according to Gore Vidal, their insincerity is never premeditated; it is always spontaneous.

    Jeter’s marriage may be bogus, but his herpes is real as hell.

    Craig, if we want Gossip we will go to page six, STRAIGHTEN UP and GET YOUR HEAD OUT YA BUTT and GO GET us some BASEBALL NEWS AND STOP THE GOSSIP ALREADY!
    This is exactly the reason why Bert Blyleven and Jack Morris can’t get in the HOF.

    Did he get it from you ?

  8. Benny - Jan 11, 2010 at 11:04 AM

    Why would Jeter schedule his wedding 24 hrs after game 7 of the World Series? Does that make any sense to anyone?

  9. Ladyfan - Jan 11, 2010 at 11:09 AM

    Must be a slow day in sports when the best you can come up with is Derek Jeter’s “maybe” marriage . . . . . c’mon Craig, there’s lot of real news out there . . let’s talk about some of that!

  10. Craig Calcaterra - Jan 11, 2010 at 11:12 AM

    I’ll make you a deal: if, by the end of the day, this Jeter post isn’t outweighed by, like, 18-25 substantive baseball news posts, I’ll refund your money. ;-)

  11. Jimmy - Jan 11, 2010 at 11:39 AM

    Not to mention Nov 5th is a Friday. Was Jeter going for the pre-weekend discount at Oheka?

  12. Ron - Jan 11, 2010 at 12:04 PM

    No, he got it from Old Gator.

  13. Old Gator - Jan 11, 2010 at 12:05 PM

    Every so often when my Aricept kicks in, I have a mnemonic revelation. Here it is: I went to Camp Oheka when I was twelve years old! I learned to roast marshmallows, catch frogs, and the camp mother was a cougar.
    .
    Or maybe she just looked like Nastassia Kinski.
    .
    So guys, if when you read stories about those uninhibited fifth grade teachers (most of whom seem to live in Florida lately) who happen to be pretty blondes with cantalaveric suspension and wonder where all the women like that were when you were in fifth grade, there’s your answer.

    who cares? why is his getting married news anyway? is it anyone’s business other than his?

  15. Old Gator - Jan 11, 2010 at 12:12 PM

    “His” isn’t getting married by itself. All of him is. And frankly, if you go by the way most of his peers seem to behave, usually it’s him who gets married and his that stays single.
    .
    Or do I have ballplayers on the road confused with golfers?

  16. baseballface - Jan 11, 2010 at 12:12 PM

    Hopefully he’s not engaged because he asked out my friend in Tampa yesterday (she declined). No lie.

  17. YANKEES1996 - Jan 11, 2010 at 12:37 PM

    Does anyone really care about this? I am a lifetime Yankee fan but seriously is there nothing better to talk about?

  18. Bootie Call - Jan 11, 2010 at 1:53 PM

    Ron replied to comment from Bootie Call King
    No, he got it from Old Gator.
    DIRTY OLD GATOR,,,,,,,,,,, HMM, FIGURES

  19. Bobby Cox - Jan 11, 2010 at 1:57 PM

  20. Dr.Ruth - Jan 11, 2010 at 1:58 PM

    Dr. Phil said men should talk about thir feelings, so go ahead.

  21. A-Rod - Jan 11, 2010 at 2:01 PM

    Ahhhhh, he probably just wanted to screw her, he does that alot.

  22. DRUNK PILOT - Jan 11, 2010 at 2:05 PM

    Maybe they will win in 4,5 OR 6 games, DO THE MATH.

  23. Jason @ IIATMS - Jan 11, 2010 at 2:24 PM

    I love it when people comment about how this isn’t news and it shouldn’t be discussed.
    Then don’t comment, don’t read. Geeezzzzz
    It’s a SLOW early January, give it a break

  24. GayRod - Jan 11, 2010 at 4:18 PM

    so youre saying i still have a chance?

  25. ClementeLegend - Jan 11, 2010 at 8:41 PM

    Because the Yankees are repeating. The Yankees went a number of seasons of not appearing in the W.S.
    So it wasn’t even a given they were going to be in this year’s World Series.
