Okay, okay, say what you will about Derek Jeter and the New York Yankees in general -- especially if you're a Boston Red Sox fan -- but you have to admit, this latest commercial in Jeter's honor in a new Jordan Brand commercial is pretty fantastic. A bunch of really famous people, from former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani to Jay Z to Michael Jordan to Tiger Woods, gives Derek Jeter a hat tip in anticipation of his last All-Star Game as a player. Ex-teammates and "Core Four" members Andy Pettitte, Mariano Rivera, and Jorge Posada make an appearance as well. So does Billy Crystal.
Even Red Sox fans and New York Mets players (and their mascot) with their faces blurred were in on the commercial.
You can't help but respect the man who's played Major League Baseball for the past two decades. The full-length commercial will play on Tuesday night before Jeter goes to bat during the All-Star Game.
