I waited forever for Barbara Walters’ “10 Most Fascinating People” Special tonight. I suffered through Simon Cowell, who has to be the most insufferable man on earth. I stuck it out through the Kardashians, who have to be the most bizarre human beings in the solar system. I even stuck it out through the promos for Donald Trump, who….Well, never mind.
Finally, there was the segment with Jeter and I nearly passed out with excitement. I’d been so starved for Yankees anything that I screamed when they showed the clips of every Jeter play we’ve all seen a zillion times.
I wish he’d let his hair grow a little. I wish he’d say something other than, “I just want to win games.” I wish he wasn’t always so coy. But what I really wish is that ABC had shown us out here on the West Coast the entire interview. All we got was an abbreviated version for some reason, and it really pissed me off.
The whole thing made me miss baseball all the more, but getting a glimpse of The Captain was better than nothing.
P.S. Here’s the picture ladyjane sent me of her and The Captain. Enjoy!
