This was absolutely hilarious. My Dad sent me a link to an article from the Onion Sports Network on Friday. It was one of the funniest pieces of writing I’ve laid my eyes on in a while. Before you have a look be warned that it’s about baseball, and though the humor in the article is universal, that it does reference a very famous baseball player that some of you may not have heard of.

You should also be warned that it is definitely not safe for work (NSFW), so before you click on the link be warned that it has a ton of swearing in it… but it will crack you up.

“Derek Jeter Rejects Move to Outfield by Reminding Yankees That He’s Derek ________ Jeter”

It’s funny to me because it’s such a great commentary on how our society is so into the next new thing that they can forget to show some dignity and respect to the heroes (be they sports heroes, entertainment heroes, business heroes, political her….. er…. um… let’s just say heroes of all shapes and sizes). I love that the Onion got Jeter’s back… even though I seriously hate the Yankees (in that good healthy way that only a true sports fan can hate a team).
