He’s Back, Almost: Derek Jeter To Star In ‘Reborn On The Fourth Of July’

Word on the street is that after a couple of Double-A rehab games on Saturday and Sunday, Derek Jeter, who has been out since straining his calf on June 13th, will make his triumphant return to the New York Yankees on Monday when the Bronx Bombers take on the Cleveland Indians, which also just so happens to be the 4th of July. Crap, Oliver Stone couldn’t have scripted Jeter’s return from injury any better, mainly because he’s terrible, just terrible.

Via FOX Sports:

”I feel good now,” Jeter said after working out at the Yankees’ minor league complex. ”I feel a lot better. I’m ready to get out of here.”

Funny, I believe that’s the same way Tom Cruise’s character in Born on the Fourth of July, Vietnam War veteran Ron Kovic, felt just before he was critically wounded in a firefight. I hope things go a bit better for Jeter. We don’t need to see him strolling up to the plate in a wheelchair all crazy-looking.
