The Derek Jeter gift basket is one of the greatest urban legends in the history of sports. And the best part about it is that, no matter how many times he denies it—like he did back in November—people are still going to believe the legend because they want to believe it. They want to believe that, whenever Yankees legend Derek Jeter hooked up with a chick, he sent her home in a limo the next morning with a gift basket full of Derek Jeter memorabilia.
The folks at 105.3 The Fan in Dallas? They certainly don’t want the legend to die. That’s why, when Jeter financée Hannah Davis phoned in to talk about her new gig as host of Project Runway Junior, they made sure to ask her about the gift baskets.
Her reply? Have a listen:
Of course, just because Hannah Davis says she didn’t receive a gift basket, that doesn’t mean they weren’t real. Maybe Jeter was just out of stock when they first hooked up. Or, for you romantics out there, maybe Jeter knew right away that she was “the one.” All I know for sure is that, when it comes to the Derek Jeter gift basket, I’m like Fox Mulder.
