  • I think it’s more to the point that everyone already owns so much Jeter gear, they just can’t sell anymore??? Admit it SF, you probably have a “Captain Clutch” bobblehead in your house that you hide when other SF’s come over for the games!!!

  • I think SF is referring to the stack of unbought Clemens’ unis on the discount table.

  • low expectations = the talk of Jeter being overrated and on the downside of his career
    That’s what I thought he was going for, with the Clemens thing in ()
    I could be wrong…

  • doh! you’re right.

  • we can’t seem to get through even one day without taking a swipe at jeter…what the picture missed is the display next to the shirts…”buy a jeter shirt, get a free bottle of ‘driven'”

  • The low expectations are for the employees at LGA. The Jeter shirt on the left manaquin is on backwards.
    And you wonder why planes are always delayed.
    Anyway, that’s Shea territory. And after last season’s swoon, they should be offering Reyes jersey’s at 50 cents on the dollar.

  • Gonna have to go with Krueg on this one. When I took my son (a Yankees fan just to spite his parents) to Yankee stadium, I let the little sucker buy and wear a Jeter shirt. I could hardly tell which one he was for the next 4 hours. If he ever talks me into taking him to the new stadium, he’s wearing an orange shirt.

  • I know this makes me a traitor, but I chuckled. Good find, SF, and a better headline.

  • “The Jeter shirt on the left manaquin is on backwards.”
    I was wondering why it looked like back boobs there.
    “I let the little sucker buy and wear a Jeter shirt. I could hardly tell which one he was for the next 4 hours.”
    Hysterical. You are right though, usually is it’s little kids and women wearing the #2 jerseys. That’s the exact reason I have never had enough courage to buy one even though DJ is my favorite player AND my son’s name!

    So that you can smell like no. 2, right?

  • John – your son is named Derek Jeter ______? That’s a little weird.

    AndrewYF March 19, 2008, 9:34 pm
  • Not that weird, Andrew. You want weird? YF’s kid is named “Mike Pagliarulo _______”.
    And she’s a girl.

    SF March 19, 2008, 9:53 pm
  • Aw. Hope Mike grows up to be a beautiful girl, YF.

  • lol, Funniest thread here in a long time.

  • I actually just laughed out loud.
    Yes, I refuse to use the annoying acronym for the reaction.

    LocklandSF March 19, 2008, 10:18 pm
  • :-P Old fart. ;-)

    Paul SF March 19, 2008, 10:21 pm
  • Very funny Andrew. No, my son’s name is Derek John. I wanted Derek Jorge, but once I got Derek I couldn’t be too greedy!

    John - YF March 19, 2008, 10:31 pm
  • Oh yeah and my older son’s middle name is Alex…I am just that much of a Yankee nerd!

    John - YF March 19, 2008, 10:32 pm
  • We call her Pags.

    YF March 19, 2008, 11:23 pm
  • John, naming your son Derek is okay because it’s not 100% apparent that he’s named after a Yankee. Derek Jorge, however, screams Bronx Bombers. Heaven forbid the kid ever works in New England! Twenty years without a promotion, I tell ya.

  • Speaking of gear…I got my new ARod jersey yesterday and the wife got her Melky!!! We are ready for the 31st!!!
    John: Get a #2…you deserve it!

    krueg March 20, 2008, 10:49 am
  • and the wife got her Melky!!!
    Watch out for sucker punches, krueg!

    SF March 20, 2008, 11:01 am
  • Krueg, where do you sit I will be there opening day as well. (I have the Sunday package, but we get opening day)

    John - YF March 20, 2008, 11:56 am
  • SF: nice…
    John: I’ll be sitting in Buffalo Wild Wings in Memphis, TN…wish I was at the stadium with you and 50,000+ of my closest friends!!!
