A-Rod or Derek Jeter: Who Would You Rather ...
... you know.
The Hollywood Gossip staff is proud to bring you Tale of the Tape, in which we break down prospective matchups within the celebrity world. The following battle has been brewing for years - and not just because of an on-field rivalry.
Since his trade to the Yankees in 2004, Alex Rodriguez has been a lightning rod (haha) for controversy, choking in the playoffs and boinking manly strippers. Star teammate Derek Jeter, meanwhile, just quietly does his (play) thing(s).
The mystery guy spotted slinking around the Empire Hotel with the gorgeous Friday Night Lights actress Minka Kelly this week was ... Derek Jeter?
While Kelly's publicist has been quiet regarding the male suitor, rumors are flying that Kelly and Jeter dined at Kobe Club on Monday night.
Yankees superstar Derek Jeter will need a hot bat if New York is to surpass the upstart Cleveland Indians in this week's American League Division Series.
But no matter what, he has a hot girlfriend in Gabrielle Union!
Apologies to Derek Jeter for lumping him in with these two. It was just for laughs. Derek Jeter has dated the likes of Jordanna Brewster, Mariah Carey and Jessica Biel - and won four World Series rings. He is in a (hunky) league of his own.
To be most fair, we should just say that three of the richest, handsomest, most talked about men in sports got together yesterday.
Yes, if Justin Timberlake and Scarlett Johansson are a couple, it's big news.
But these two might not even be the hottest new couple making headlines. As fans of attractive women and baseball, The Hollywood Gossip staff probably gives that honor to Jessica Biel and Derek Jeter.
Jessica Biel has a history of walking canines.
When it comes to dating, however, the sultry star hangs around with anything but dogs. The latest case in point? Yankees shortstop, Derek Jeter.
Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo are one happy couple - and that doesn't sit well with one controlling father.
