And the Oscar Goes to... Derek Jeter

Derek Jeter is a good baseball player. He's a consistant bat, and he plays below average defense (just ask Bill James). He's also talented at getting consideration for completely undeserved awards. I DO have a grudging respect for the Yankees captain....

But this afternoon, Derek Jeter was awarded his fourth AL Gold Glove Award, which is absolutely ridiculous. Jeter's range is tiny, and he makes so many unnecessary pirouettes that the NYC Ballet gets dizzy just watching him.

So, without further ado, here's a list of things with a better range than Derek Jeter:

Zac Efron.

Jar Jar Binks.

This guy.

My Grandmother (okay, this isn't MY grandmother... but she is pretty badass).

Mickey Mouse.A Red Sox Mr. Potato Head

A banana.

10-year-old Jason Varitek.

And Elmo.

Oh, well. Congrats on the (hollow) Gold Glove, Jetes.


  1. i forgot that elmo is a yankee fan... :S xD

  2. Elmo is a yankees fan?! There's another reason to hate that red b@#%&*d!And also, I concur that jeter did not deserve the award. As with the World Series, the Yankees probably bought the award.

  3. Thank you for the Varitek!!!!!!!! :) You knew it would make me smile. I couldnt believe it when I heard Jeter won the Gold Glove.

    Oh and to add to your list, a tone deaf person has a better range :) (literally range in notes)

  4. I had better range on crutches....in winter...at hebron
