Comment: Surewe usually choose pop stars here but stop and think, when we were ever FORCED to choose a pop star? Why not the once and future Derek Jeter who will be forever missed in the Yankees as even the Gods of baseball can’t fight the inevitable movement of time? I don’t know what Jeter is selling on Seth Meyers, but whatever he is selling, I’m buying.
