The daily Jeter

These smartphone things are amazing. If you’re a reporter, you can use them to record people like Derek Jeter, who was having a news conference after Derek Jeter Day at Yankee Stadium.

“Sometimes for any of us, it’s the captain’s world, and we’re just living in it,” she wrote in her column today.
