Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter lost bet and legally changes his name

Funny story written by Alvin Taveras

STUPIDVILLE - It was an unfortunate bet on a fortunate player. New York Yankees shortstop, Derek Jeter found himself in a bad bet likened to O.J. Simpson trouble.

Jeter embarrassed by the bet was hoping that he would be forgiven, yet to no avail, the Yankee shortstop, reportedly, was told that his money was no good because his career was going to expire soon.

Further investigation tells us that the exchanged text messages detailing the nature of the bet and its consequences, ironically, did not involve third baseman Alex Rodriguez.

However, that didn't stop Yankee fans for blaming him. Yankee fanatic Charles Ridger commented via Twitter and said about Rodriguez, "Another lack of effort is not surprising when it comes to A-SNOB."

The bet's wager: Jeter would have to convince MLB commissioner Bud Selig to give the New York Yankees another chance to play for the 2011 World Series ring or force third baseman Alex Rodriguez to admit he needs HGH to perform. In fact, there even was a bonus of ten million dollars and Hugh Hefner's bathrobe.

Jeter would have owned fifty-one percent of the Dallas Mavericks if he pulled it off. Apparently, a particular sports owner, who we won't name based on the condition of anonymity in this story, has nothing better to do.

Skipper Joe Giraradi made no official comment because he refuses to work on his summers off.

But no one was more thrilled than Mr. Metta World Peace, formerly known as NBA player Ron Artest. When we ask Ron for comments, he grabbed the microphone from our hands and said, "I want to meet that Jeter dude." He then dropped the microphone and ran away.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
