For the record, I’m not gay (not that there’s anything wrong with that). And another for the record. I am 100% secure in my masculinity that I can call a man handsome, applaud his phenomenal feats, and compliment him to the point where it may in fact look like I’m in love with him. As such I feel it appropriate to run a series of “Man Crush” articles a few times a month.
Who better to start with than Derek Jeter?
We all know Derek’s accomplishments on the field. I’ll cite “The Dive,” his record 150 postseason hits, and World Series MVP award as being pretty significant. Clearly he has a ton more and this wikipedia profile does no justice. In addition to his baseball prowess this guy clearly embodies what us guys want to be off the field.
Pictures and reasons after the jump
First of all, the guy dated Jessica Alba. That in itself will get anyone on this esteemed list of Man Crushes. But let’s go over ten things about Derek Jeter that make this guy crushable.
1. Jessica Alba 2. The guy can rake. 3. Good looking guy. 4. Adriana Lima 5. He wanted to play baseball because of Dave Winfield, my all time favorite baseball player 6. Scarlett Johannson 7. Jessica Biel 8. Jordan Brewster 9. Lara Dutta 10. The other 500 girls we don’t know about
Despite them being unnecessary to prove my point, these picture exemplify all that is Jeter. By the way, notice I slipped in a David Wright picture in there. Does D. Wright have what it takes to be the next Mr. Manhattan? I think he’s got the tools but only time will tell.
