Derek Jeter Wants Me to Switch from Haterade to His Sports Drink

Little does Derek know that no other drink restores my electrolytes after a long, hard day of writing obnoxious blog posts about celebrities in quite the same way, so his efforts are fruitless.

Derek Jeter, Yankees shortstop, headed down to hang out with the youngun’s over at MTV’s TRL, promoting the launch of Gatorade’s G2, set to run major advertising during the Super Bowl. The drink is being billed as a low-calorie beverage and apparently tastes best with saltine crackers, as I’m surmising from the pictures. Awesome, another sports drink that overweight couch potatoes can wear in their track suits and tennis shoes while watching TV so they can pretend they’re doing something athletic. At least be kind and throw some caffeine in there, Derek.
