Where did people hear about the cracked knee cap? I can’t find it.
BTW, here’s the official press release about it from the Bravos:
Chipper Jones Undergoes Right Knee Surgery
Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones underwent successful arthroscopic surgery today to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. The procedure was performed by Dr. Marvin Royster in Atlanta, Ga.
Jones is expected to return to the playing field in approximately two to three weeks.
Thanks for posting that. I just repeated what he said while watching the game on Fox.
Another subject….Congrats to Jeter for 3,000th hit today. Pretty neat it was a HR. Question for all…. if you had caught the ball, would you had done what the fan did? Rumor is the ball would have gotten him 250,000 cash.
Yeah congrats to Derek Jeter. I was reading an article about him and it makes one really interesting point. Derek Jeter is probably the most watched baseball player or athlete in history. And the writer is probably right. He’s played for the most popular sports franchise in history. He plays every night in front of huge crowds. He’s played in the playoffs every year in front of national audiences. He’s played in an era with MLB satellite tv packages and mlb.tv. He also was hilarious on the Other Guys. “Biracial Jesus” LOL.Everyone knows who Derek Jeter is, even people who don’t watch baseball at all. Interesting.
I know the fan was trying to be nice but cmon. Derek Jeter has made over 200 million dollars in his career. Yet this guy who said he works at a cell phone store probably making 35,000 dollars a year won’t even hold out for half a million dollars which Jeter or someone else would have for sure paid him. Very stupid.
Comment on Saturday’s TV: Best thing for fans would be for the network to turn up the fan noise at the park so we can turn down the commentators. They never shut up with their worthless comments!! Better yet, fire them and save some money. Do they really believe that the more the announcers talk, the more people watch?
