ICYMI, Derek Jeter announced the start of his new athlete-to-fan website The Players' Tribune today, a website made for athletes to connect with fans with "no filter." Jeter's goal with the endeavor is to bring the athletes to the people without any media personalities or sports writers getting in the way, offering the purest form of their personal stories. It's ironic considering Jeter was one of the most famously guarded athletes ever, but, hey, we're not here to judge.
After announcing the news, though, Jeter took to Twitter this afternoon to address any questions fan had about the project. The hashtag used to bring questions his way was #AskJeter.
We all know how this was going to go, right?
Like any Twitter event featuring a #Ask label, there were more than a few Tweeters ready to fire off some absolutely ridiculous questions for Jeter. Touching on anything from Jeter's sex life to Alex Rodgriguez to Inception, Twitter found a way to cover all the bases during their conversation with Jeets. Of course, every single one of these questions went unanswered, but Jeter's silence doesn't mean we should just forget about them. Who knows? Maybe he'll respond to them on The Players' Tribune.
#AskJeter Did Mariah Carey ever try to bite your dick off? She seems like the type of gal that would try in an arguement

This question is about nothing.
The public needs to know.
He'll never tell.
Did you really expect DJ to answer that?
Do you have herpes? #AskJeter

This conversation just got really real really fast.
You're asking the wrong person.
He probably doesn't like to play favorites.
We don't want to know.
Still doesn't beat Wilt, tho.
*Hits blunt* Whoa. That's really deep, man.
There's no way he was touching that one.
Any answer to this would be TMI.
*Deeply contemplates answer*
Are you talking about sunflower seeds?
No, but he can definitely call the police.
Do you still have a pair of Minka Kelly's panties? If so can I have them? #AskJeter
