Did anyone else watch this game? I dislike the Yanks as much as the next guy, but I have to take issue with Chip Caray's serious man-crush on Derek Jeter. Every other sentence out of his mouth made me think of that line from Wayne's World.
"Excuse me Russel, but I believe I ordered the handjob."
One time, he gushed over Jeter catching a screaming line drive right at him by saying, "Derek Jeter in perfect position to take care of Michael Cuddyer." Really, Chip? 'Cuz he was at shortstop. You know, where he usually plays? Between 3rd and 2nd? You know, where most shortstops play?
There were no less than 4 graphics prepared to show how great Derek Jeter is, we had to watch the replay of that play where he threw out Jeremy Giambi at home by being in a totally strange place on the field and redirecting a relay throw. The guy just had to go 2-for-2 with 2 walks too, just to give Chip more to talk about.
All this, and almost no mention of Joe Mauer, who is the likely MVP this year.
