"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

New York Minute


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.

[3] yea doesn't seem like it can drag on too much longer. the whole 'negotiation' aspect is making me think of pete rose.

MLB radio reported that Arod is moving to Trenton next, and that Coffee Joe has said he'll be ready for Monday night's game. If $man has a deal cookin' he hasn't told Joe, or maybe Joe is putting out trash.

[5] If Joe doesn't know, shame on him. I'm inclined to think the Yanks are in extreme CYA mode right now.
