Friday's A.M. Hot Clicks: Derek Jeter is an Underwear Mogul
The LeBron James uncertainty tour continued yesterday as the Cavs waited by the phone for a call that never came. Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that James and Dwyane Wade were hanging together in Las Vegas while Chris Bosh continued the #boshfamilyworldtour in Ghana. As all this was happening, Tide laundry detergent and Riddick Bowe (of all people) decided to get in on the LeBron-mania.
Derek Jeter: Underwear Mogul
What's the only thing better than Derek Jeter secretly owning an underwear company? When that underwear theat company sells is jokingly referred to as “Tempur-Pedic banana hammocks.” According to the New York Post, Jeter is a part-owner of Frigo RevolutionWear, which sells customized men’s underwear (whatever that means) for $100 a pair. In a related story, people spend $100 for a pair of underwear.

From the SI Vault
On this day in 1989, one of the more memorable MLB All-Star games took place in Anaheim Stadium. The game may best be remembered for Bo Jackson's leadoff bomb as he became just the second player to hit a home run and steal a base in an All-Star game. Also of note, former U.S. President Ronald Reagan joined Vin Scully in the NBC broadcast booth to call the first inning.
