Overrated? Fuhgeddaboutit. Derek Jeter has five rings, a track record of hitting the baddest chicks (no C-Breezy), a huge castle on the beach, and a crazy amount of endorsement cake, so hate if you want—the Captain doesn't care. He's accomplished all this while under the New York media microscope, and has managed to elude major controversy the whole time; Jeter is all class. Unlike some MLB superstars (ahem, A-Rod), the Yankee captain isn't some cornball, either. The sports icon has made a cameo on Seinfeld, appeared in skits and commercials with award-winning actors, and even received a lyrical shout-out from Foxy Brown. So, as he approaches the exclusive 3,000 hit club (only 14 12 11 10 9 7 6 4 3 2 to go CONGRATS TO THE CAPTAIN!), we take a look at Derek Jeter's Best Pop Culture Moments.
