My Wife, Truthteller

Mrs. SF, a relative newcomer to the Sox/Yanks rivalry, with the line of the night, maybe the line of the year:

“I don’t like Derek Jeter. He looks like Liza Minelli’s ex-husband”.

  • Perhaps the tension of impending parenthood is warping the otherwise reliable judgement of the SF household.

  • I can post pictures…

  • If you ever saw DJ’s Saturday Night Live appearance, then you know by his own admission he resembles nothing so much as “a cross between The Rock and a muppet.”

  • So who does your wife like? If Jeter is ugly I’d like to see who she thinks is “cute”? Maybe she’d like to hump Manny, Pedro, Ortiz and if she can handle it Derek Lowe? SF you and you’re homely wife don’t wanna go there, Red Sox gotta be the ugliest team in the majors. But that’s not what it’s all about is it? It’s about winning championships, big games, league titles. And what do you know, the Red Sox are still butt ugly in that respect.

  • Is this Jerry Springer?

  • I do agree with the anonymous poster that SF shouldn’t “go there”. I think in all fairness SF should also indicate which player his wife likes. My wife likes Andy Pettite.

  • I thought it was rather endearing for SF to voice his wife’s opinion. There are legions of women who disagree with Mrs. SF and to each his own. Me, I’m partial to the Rocket.

  • Since when does posting my wife’s rather humorous opinion on Derek Jeter’s appearance warrant an obscene and insulting response? Can we try to keep the posting within the bounds of good taste?
    As for the absolutely gorgeous Mrs. SF, she likes Johnny Damon, though she’s not religious so don’t read too much into that.

  • And JCL: why exactly shouldn’t I “go there”? I don’t even understand where “there” is. Have you Yankees fans absolutely NO sense of humor? Flawed teams make for thin skins, I guess…

  • Johnny Damon, now he’s dreamy. SF remember the old commercial, pass this along to your wife, “Get glasses Alice.”

  • Does SF always try to pick a fight? I was only kidding around (I think that was obvious by my mention of my wife’s favorite). I can’t believe that my comment received more criticism than the anonymous guy.

  • Hard to tell humor in the post, the perils of text-blogging – my bad. And your post has nothing on Mr. (or Mrs.) Anonymous!

  • For some reason, my girlfriend really liked Karim Garcia. Now, she kind of digs Jorge Posada, though “it’s hard to see him under that mask.” She likes Jeter OK but says he has bad hair.
