Derek Jeter's farewell tour is leaving Cleveland with a few cool gifts.
The New York Yankees captain is doing the ol' farewell tour thing as he inches closer toward retirement. As is custom now after Mariano Rivera's send-off last season, opposing teams aren't letting Jeter leave town without a little something extra in his suitcase.
The gifts have varied in coolness — the A's gave him some wine (meh) but the Angels gave him a huge surfboard (bodacious!) Good luck fitting that surfboard in your overheard compartment on the team plate, Jeets.
Both gifts Jeter received Thursday from the Indians need to be handled gently too. They gave him a personalized guitar (since Cleveland is the home of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame) and a portrait of himself made out of Lego. It depicts a homer he hit against the Indians in 1996.
Important question: Can Derek Jeter play guitar? In addition to all the wonderful Derek Jeter things he already does? If so, he needs to stop making regular dudes look so bad.
