Derek Jeter rooting for U.S. Olympic women's soccer team
The U.S. women's soccer team can count Derek Jeter among its fans.
The Yankees shortstop was following the women's Olympic match on TV in the visitors' dining room at Comerica Park in Detroit -- until he had to go for batting practice before playing the Tigers Monday night.
"It's 3-3, can someone get the game on up there?" Jeter asked, motioning toward the video board that looms over the leftfield wall.
Alas, the game wasn't put up.
At least the U.S. women pulled out a 4-3 win at the last minute and avoided having to go to penalty kicks.-- AP
