OK, they’re not those kind. They look more like this.
Either way, I’m thrilled that two Yankees were honored this season. I figured Tex was a shoo-in, given his spectacular play at first, but I wasn’t sure if Jeter would win it. There was so much attention paid to his offensive consistency, especially after he broke Gehrig’s hits record. So a Gold Glove for his defense has to feel mighty sweet for him. I do have one concern, however. Given how many trophies Jeet has won over the years, where will he put them all? His attic is probably stuffed with stuff.
Oh, wait. He’s building that 30,000 square foot Casa Jeter on an island off of Tampa.
Surely, there will be room for the Gold Glove and anything else he wants to store. His living room alone is probably the size of a bowling alley.
Which leads me to wonder who will clean the house? I worry about things like that. I mean, it’s obviously more work than one housekeeper will be able to handle. So will he have to hire an entire crew every week?
Or will he simply borrow the groundskeepers at Steinbrenner Field?
He’ll also need someone to run the house for him – an estate manager who oversees “the help.” I’m pretty good at telling people what to do (plus I’m extremely discreet – well, I am!), so maybe I should apply for the job and my husband could serve as chief butler.
I bet the salary would be excellent, as well as the benefits. And there would be free spring training tickets for sure! The best part would be that Mr. Jeter (I’m starting to call him that already, so I can practice) will be gone for seven months of the year! I’ll have the place to myself! I can have friends over and we can party!
Oh, wait. Why would A-Rod be there? Never mind.
