In his time off it appears that New York Yankees superstar Derek Jeter likes to troll the local Starbucks for free coffee whenever someone doesn't answer the call when their name is announced. Don't laugh. That crap is expensive (and so damn good). You know I'm just kidding, right? Apparently Jeter thinks that if he goes into Starbucks and says his name is something other than what it is--like Phillip--that no one will recognize him and harass him for autographs or ask when he's going to play again. I bet the conversation behind the counter went something like this: Barista1: Dude! That's Derek Jeter with the venti caramel machiato with non-fat and extra whip! I alway pictured him as a frapucino kind of guy. Barista2: Nah man. That ain't Derek Jeter. That's Phillip. Check the name on the cup. Barista1: (after checking name) Whoops. My bad! Good thing I didn't say anything and embarrass myself. I wonder when Jeter is going to play again...  Barista2: I don't
PLAYERS: Derek Jeter
