it just makes you wanna hug something fuzzy
a story of friendship, from the blog of friendship:
What happens to the Yankees' defense?
You've heard it a hundred times by now: Rodriguez is willing to move to third base to accommodate his old pal Derek Jeter. Don't believe the hype.
A-Rod and Jeter are smart guys. For one thing, you can bet they've already discussed who would play where if they were ever on the same team. Here's how I think it shakes out, given the PR-savvy people involved.
A-Rod: "I'd be more than happy to play third so my pal can play shortstop."
Jeter: "Oh, you rascal! Sure, I'm a great defensive presence and a Yankees stalwart, but you're a Gold Glove winner. You should play there."
A-Rod: "That's so kind of you, I don't know if I could impose..."
Jeter: "It's no imposition. Please. Allow me to make the sacrifice."
A-Rod: "If you insist."
Jeter: "I insist."
So they both get to offer to sacrifice their egos for the good of the team. It's Jeter who volunteers to give up his position, which calms the press and the fans. That's how I see it happening.
i suggest a fuzzy navel.
