Guy I know went to the game last week when Derek Jeter returned to action.
Sent me this e-mail:
Went to the game again today, got a $5 ticket, bought it a couple hours before the Jeter announcement.
On the train on the way up, I see a couple. (I was running late so there weren’t many of us). The girl’s wearing a Jeter T-shirt, looking at her cell phone. The guy’s got on a Yankees wife-beater, Yanks shorts, and he’s holding one of those bona fide gray Jeter jerseys that cost like a 100 bucks.
I sidle up and say, “Hey, got the Jeter gear! His first game of the year!”
The guy looks at me then looks away. “I dunno, we don’t follow them.”
The girl keeps on checking her phone.
