Derek Jeter started the game needing three hits to tie Lou Gehrig’s record of hits-as-a-Yankee.
He got the three hits during the game (and he was a class act as he did it), plus he got his 300th stolen base, and then Jorge Posada hit a splendid three-run homer to top it all off.
I have my priorities. It mattered much more to see all that than to hear Obama say what I’ve heard him say before.
Tepid political theater is no match for a good ballgame. And if I have a choice between looking at Nancy Pelosi or looking at Derek Jeter, who do you think I’m going to choose?
