Hello, everyone. The Infamous Tatiana here. Ya know, the Derek Jeter obsessed gal? Yeah, well I have a bit of a confession to make. Since saturday, I have received numerous Jeter cards in the mail, both from trades and Ebay purchases. Cards including classics such as Flair Showcase to amazing pieces of history such as my very first printing plate. Some of you may be wondering why I haven’t scanned the cards like I normally do; some of you may already be thinking I am too lazy, but the truth is, that ever since Friday’s game, I lost a bit of interest in Jeter. I never expected him to be the way that he was. Hell, part of the reason I liked him was because of who he was as a person (at least how he portrayed himself on television), and after seeing him in the flesh, my image of him was severely tarnished. I don’t know what I expected, I guess not really an auto or a friendly conversation, but the jerk could have at least turned around and waved when his numerous fans yelled out his name. There were children pleading with him to sign a ball, or their favorite baseball card, and once they were turned away, they looked that their parents with tears in their eyes and asked why ‘Mr. Jeter’ paid them no attention. One parent actually said, “Because he is a New York Yankee, son. You’ll understand when your older.” Well Hell, I’m not a naive 9 year old and I still don’t understand why these guys have to be such pr*cks.
Having said all that, seeing Jeter in person has left a bad taste in my mouth. So, for now, just bear with me on the lack of Jeter scans… maybe in a couple of days I’ll get over how poorly he acted and I’ll scan my cards….
Boo for Jeter! 😦
