Derek Jeter, a man of honor and integrity. After the game, anyway.

So Jete admitted, in a post-game interview, what everybody in the world knew except the ump – the pitch hit the bat instead of him. Nonetheless, he hammed it up like an Argentinian striker taking fire from the Grassy Knoll. Fakes his way on base, and later scores.

Since then, I’ve heard all kinds of sports pundits saying good on him, that’s exactly what you do to help your team, etc. (I wanted to choke Mark Schlereth this morning – normally I love the guy, but this was a full-throated opus in praise of foul play). Blah blah blah. I don’t recall any of these folks praising all the divers in last summer’s World Cup, though.
But I guess that’s different, huh? Because it’s not cheating if America’s Icon of Fair Play does it.

    Ik heb een nieuw huis gekocht en daarvoor had
    ik een nieuwe keuken nodig.
    Het is een een hele mooie Amerikaanse keuken geworden, met een kookeiland, een grote koelkast
    en een kookeiland waar we ook kunnen eten en ontbijten.
    Mijn trost zijn de mooie design eetkamerstoelen kopen die
    daaraan staan. Ik heb ze in een goede eetkamerstoelen webshop gehaald, waarna de
    stoelen al snel werden bezorgd!

    And the threats within the digital world mirror the threats inside the physical world.

    Some MPs fill the judges have got to be three weeks, for
    instance, by becoming too attached to ordering litigants to
    speak nobody regarding the case. On the world
    wide web privacy are unable to just be breached by hackers and cyber criminals, but also
    by careless internet usage.
