Derek Jeter revealed more about himself in 45 minutes Wednesday afternoon then he did throughout his entire 20-year career with the New York Yankees.
The former Yankees captain took some time out for a Twitter Q&A just hours after launching his new website, the Players’ Tribune. Jeter promised that the online publication would provide unique access to athletes, showing a side of them the fans might not see in the media every day, and it appears that unique access begins with The Captain.
Some of the mystery surrounding Jeter faded away as he opened up on a variety of topics, including his favorite soap opera, his hopes about one day becoming an owner of a team, and we also learned that No. 2 orders off the Starbucks secret menu. We saved the best for last, though, as the 39-year-old shared that he’s scared of cats.
Oh, Jeets, you’ve been holding out on us all these years.
