New York Yankees: Jeter Infection Spreads to Super Bowl

The Yankees captain Derek Jeter has always been quite the heartthrob, and not with just the ladies.

It seems that the Jeter bug has hit Indianapolis this week, as not one but both Super Bowl XLVI quarterbacks admitted to having a serious man-crush on El Capitan.

Yes, that would be one Patriots Tom Brady and one Giants Eli Manning.

The two QB’s took time to slip in some words of absolute admiration for Jeter during their media day this past Tuesday.

Both Super Bowl bound guys are taken; Manning is married to his very attractive college girlfriend; and Brady goes home to Gisele…need I say more?

The New York Daily News quoted Brady, just two days ago, as saying:

“You see someone who plays the game the way you think it needs to be played, like Derek Jeter. I love the way he plays the game.”

Boston fans must have thrown up; and than swallowed it rehashing Brady’s Yankee hat wearing days and further proof that it was no accident.

Manning on the other hand shared a sweet phone moment he had with the Captain back in his first season with the Giants, as reported by ESPN’s Dan Graziano.

According to Graziano, Jeter called Manning after his first few loses to lend some words of wisdom:

“Keep your head up, keep doing what you’re doing and it’ll get better.”

Wow! I bet Eli wasn’t told that by anyone else like his football superstar brother or father.

Regardless, it seems that anytime people think the Jeter virus has gone dormant, his infection comes back banging. And I mean literally.

Well, my bet is if either Eli or Tom want to receive the signature “been there, done that” signed baseball from Derek, winning the Super Bowl would definitely help.

Brady has three rings to Manning’s one, so they have some work to do to catch up with Jeter’s five rings, and what could very likely be a sixth after this season. At least that is the plan.

It is a safe bet that the Captain probably would not tune in on Sunday anyway, considering he couldn’t find the time to watch his own Yankees when he was on the DL last season. He said he didn’t have the package.

Well, that excuse won’t fly this time but at the very least Jeter has to cheer for Big Blue just out of pure respect.

Still it would be nice to know his pick for Super Bowl XLVI, even if does break some hearts along the way.
