Derek Jeter? Yes. Mike Francesca? Evidently. Eli Manning? Of course. Henrik Lundqvist? Sure. Giambi? Absolutely.
The New York Daily News ran a People’s Choice poll concurrently with the actual list (which contained many feasible names such as Jeter (duh), Manning, Goodell and so on), so this is basically for poops and giggles. But still, a guy who hasn’t played for the Yankees in six years getting this kind of rub seems shocking in this era where the 24/7 news cycle. Yesterday’s news in just that in a matter of minutes these days.
Yet, there he is; right behind the Rangers’ All-World goalie and ahead of Jay-Z. Your guess is as good as mine.
