As promised, L'affaire de Jeter....
Two years ago I was working on a TV show for a national sports network (that has since been canceled, sadly) with a writer/producer who told me the following story. I worked with him for a year and I trust his version of events completely, as he is a careful, factual story teller and I've heard him tell it twice. His version is what follows and it does not do justice to the way he tells it- he is a great story teller, careful in remembering the details and walking the listener through the narrative with care. It's a shame you can't hear him tell it, you would enjoy it more. Anyhow, here is the story:
My source has a close friend that he describes as a "smoking hot chick." She works in public relations in New York City. Let's give her the phony name of "Liz" since it's easy to type. Liz often works VIP parties and functions and has met many celebs, but isn't prone to being starstruck. She is, however, a native New Yorker and a massive Yankees fan. For obvious reasons, Derek Jeter is someone who was on her sexual wish list.
One night while working a VIP party (circa 2003-ish) in the city, she noticed a man across the room, and there stood Number Two in the flesh. She made eye contact but was too shy to go over. No need to worry, the captain made the first move. He walked over to her and dropped the following pickup line- "WHAT ARE YOUR HOPES? WHAT ARE YOUR DREAMS?" Liz was very nervous and managed to BS her way through about 20 minutes of chit-chat that seemed oddly generic to her. She thought she did well. Eventually Jeter gave her a cell number. It was the number to his personal driver. If she wished to visit him at his place after the party she could call that number and the driver would do the rest. She took the number.
At the end of the night Liz called the number, having no idea whether it was fake or real or whether Batman would show up. Sure enough it was the number to DJ's driver who picked her up at the event. I don't remember what kind of car it was, but as I recall I think it might have been a town car. Anyway, she gets a ride directly to Jeter's building. It was a large apartment building with a doorman, etc and she was whisked to a private elevator that went directly up to Jeter's penthouse apartment.
The elevator door opens and she is immediately met by a butler (or manservant if you wish) who says that "Mr. Jeter is ready for you in the bedroom." Liz is escorted directly to the door as the butler then moves away for privacy.
She opens the bedroom door to see a shirtless Jeter by the bed wearing only a pair of jeans. He turns to look at her and gives her a glance that says 'I see you've made it here, that means one thing only- we are about to get it AWN and you are not leaving until that happens.' Liz says the look made it crystal clear that there would be no further communication or social graces of any kind until he got what he wanted.
The dirty details? Well, I don't have info as to positions and such, but I can say that she reported that he was in perfect physical shape and was generously endowed, however the evening's proceedings were, shall we say, very short lived. No foreplay, no mystery, just right down to it and over very quickly. She found it a bit odd, impersonal and not exactly the dream date she had imagined that it might be. He was very polite throughout, though and let her stay the night and had the driver give her a ride back to her place the next morning. She felt it was more like a business deal then a hook up. However, she was quite pleased with the accomplishment and went about her life with a nice little story to tell.
Months went by and she went back to her job and her life. While at another VIP event whom did she happen to spot, but Derek Jeter once again mingling amongst the crowd. She wondered what she should do- go over to say hi and to remind him of their night together? Would he remember that they did it? Should she just run away? Before she could finish her thoughts guess who saunters over? Yup, it's Jetes again. And guess what his first sentence is? Yup, you guessed it- "WHAT ARE YOUR HOPES? WHAT ARE YOUR DREAMS?" She laughs and gives him the option of remembering that they shared a night together with the exact same opening line. It's clear that he did not remember any of it at all.
So, Liz is curious to see if she can land her dream guy a second time. And she does. She doesn't let on that she's been through this before and so Jeter gives her the exact same spiel. She gets the driver's number, gets driven to his place, gets shown in by the butler, goes to the bedroom door, he's once again by the bed in only his jeans, gives her the same RoboSex look, and the exact same hook up session ensues- quick, almost machine-like in its efficiency and devoid of any kind of variety. The guy is just a creature of habit, I guess. Liz never let on that she had done this before and DJ never figured it out either. Liz thought this was hilarious and typical jock dude behavior.
So, the next time you type 'Jeter' into Google and the word "herpes" pops up as an option, the story of Liz might shed some light as to why this might be the case- he's a repeat offender.
I never met "Liz" in person so I can't confirm any of this independently, but I trust my proxy source totally and I believe that this happened exactly the way that it did. Hope you all found some entertainment value in it. Sorry there's no Giambi Jiz lick punch line involved, but it gives you an inside look at his personality I suppose.
