Maxim's Hot 100 List comes out soon, but word has already leaked that Derek Jeter has dated six of the ladies who crack the all-important roster. While we were reading this, we couldn't help but wonder who has the better resume: Jeter or John Mayer? Jeter comes to the table with Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel, Mariah Carey, Gabrielle Union, Jessica Alba and Vanessa Minillo. Mayer counters with Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jessica Simpson, Minka Kelly and Cameron Diaz. We hate to admit it, but we'd have to say, advantage Mayer. More on this below...
UPDATE: 11:28 a.m.: OK, we hit a major nerve. Our inbox is getting flooded with missives about how off base we are. Brian Wallace, of Hanover, Pa., writes: "Are you insane? Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel and Jessica Alba trumps any FIFTY girls Mayer may have had. That's a murderer's row. That's like having LeBron, KG AND Kobe on your team." Jamie Goodman, of Toronto, says: "Are you guys insane?? Mayers roster over Jeters? I come to this site every day, but you just lost serious credibility!" Hollywood, of New York (we'll guess that's a fake name) wrote: "Dude, seriously, No one and def not John Mayer has a better roster than Jeter! No one on Mayer's list comes close to Alba and Biel." Jon, of Baltimore, added: "Dude, any list with Alba, Biel and Scarlett wins." Our explanation: We can't argue Biel, Alba and Johasson. Nor would we. But we've always had soft spots for Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Minka Kelly, so that colored our decision. Plus, looney Mariah Carey is just a huge negative on Jeter's ledger. We appreciate the passionate e-mails, though. It's definitely an important subject, and it needs to be discussed!
