- Not everyone in Japan knows who Derek Jeter is. Some think he’s a catcher. Others have no idea who he is. That must be refreshing for him.
- John Sterling unfortunately lost everything in an apartment fire. He lost all of his World Series rings in the blaze, except for 2009 (which he was wearing). Alex Rodriguez even offered him a place to stay.
- Hannaah Davis landed the cover of Sports Illustrated’s 2015 Swimsuit Issue. I met her at the “Swim City” event in Manhattan and I got a chance to meet her. She was absolutely beautiful. I even asked her to take a selfie with me and she gladly did. She’s got my approval (not that she needs it).
- Joe Torre wants everyone to keep quiet about A-Rod and let him play. Mr. T stated, “Obviously, what Alex did was wrong. He admits that. There’s nothing left for him to do but play baseball.”
- Mitchell & Ness put together a map showing their best selling vintage jersey sales by state. Mickey Mantle’s 1951 Yankees jersey lead Idaho. Lou Gehrig’s 1932 Yankees jersey took Wyoming.
- Alex Rodriguez enrolled in a marketing class (Marketing 644) and scored a 44 on a test.
- Reggie Jackson is selling the old Yankee Stadium letters in Sotheby’s auction house.
- Derek Jeter went to Japan to assist Hideki Matsui in an effort to raise money for the 2011 tsunami and earthquake relief that hit the Tohoku area.

In just three short weeks, the Yankees will take the field in the Bronx for Opening Day. They’ll be opening up the season at home against the Toronto Blue Jays on April 6th (1:05PM ET). After this brutally cold winter, there’s nothing I want more than a beer in my hand, a sunny day and a seat at the ballpark. See-ya then!

As it stands now, the New York Rangers are up 2-0 in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Montreal Canadiens. They’re just two wins away from advancing to the Stanley Cup. For all of you who were old enough to appreciate the 1993-1994 Stanley Cup Rangers, here’s a trip down memory lane as the champs take “The Cup” to Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.

The 2014 NHL Coors Light Stadium Series is coming up at the end of the month, and it looks like Henrik Lundqvist will be making a new fashion statement. On the right side of his new mask, Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio and Lou Gehrig are pictured. It’s only fitting because the two games will take place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. It looks as if Henrik’s custom crown logo (from the Crown Collection) will be on the front of the mask.
Update: 7:00PM ET: Here is a full shot of the complete mask in all it’s glory:
The Henrik Lundqvist Blog also pointed out some interesting pinstriped goalie pads (made by Bauer) that he might be using in the upcoming series. This isn’t set in stone, but these could be the pads he wears:

On September 23rd, 2001, Bette Midler took the stage at Yankee Stadium in “A Prayer for America,” a tribute to those who lost their lives in the September 11th attacks. Bette sang her biggest hit, “Wind Beneath My Wings.”

Last week, Derek Jeter held a pregame press conference with the media prior to the team’s game against the Blue Jays. This was the first time he addressed the media after reinjuring his left ankle. When asked if he’d return to the ball club this season, his response was, “no doubt.” He seemed to answer a lot of questions with that same answer. He went onto say, “when you have doubt, that’s when you’re in trouble.” He didn’t want to make any promises on when he would exactly return, but the general consensus is that it will be after the all-star break.
Derek was upbeat throughout the entire interview. He was cracking smiles and making jokes, so it was nice to see him in good spirits. A media member brought up Derek’s “Advanced Age” and said that maybe that’s why this injury occurred, but Jeter insisted it was just a freak thing. If there’s a player out there that hates sitting on the bench, it’s Derek Jeter. We all know about his great work ethic, his dedication to the team and his will to win. There was another question asking whether he would be able to return to form prior to the injury. Derek responded that he fully expects to play at the same level as he did before. At this point, Jeter is still in a walking boot and remains months away from his return. There wasn’t any real groundbreaking news throughout the conference, but the most important thing you saw was that Derek was very positive about his return.

Update: 10:20AM ET: The video has been removed from Youtube, but the guys over at Deadspin still have the footage.
Update: 1:37AM ET (9/17): (There’s a video. Click here) NSFW! Best video comment so far: “Cc got a white ass..”
Ummmm…I wonder how CC feels about all of this.

“The attacks of September 11th were intended to break our spirit. Instead we have emerged stronger and more unified. We feel renewed devotion to the principles of political, economic, and religious freedom, the rule of law and respect for human life. We are more determined than ever to live our lives in freedom.” –Rudolph Giuliani
