Babe Ruth had a beard like this once, too.
Maybe he could be productive on the Disney company softball team.

Next let's see Gingerbread Pro Player Stadium!
Showing up to a Jets game like this can't help his case for a big contract.
Derek Jeter's trophy case got a little more crowded today.
After winning his fifth Gold Glove yesterday, baseball writers awarded the Yankees shortstop his first Cy Young award today by unanimous vote.
"I play this game for team rewards, but it is always a great honor to receive individual recognition, as well," Jeter said in a statement. "I am humbled to win the Cy Young Award, yet at the same time I feel it is as deserved as my Gold Gloves."
Jeter, who last pitched in relief in Little League, received 32 of 32 first-place votesfrom members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America. In the press release announcing the results, the BBWAA noted Jeter's 0.00 ERA, 0.00 WHIP and undefeated record.
But it wasn't just statistics, said voter Mel Antonen of USA Today.
Yankees part owner Hal Steinbrenner stated this week in an interview that while the team wants to bring the living Yankee legend back, it does not want to break the bank to do so. Jeter is coming off of his worst season in the majors. Jeter's agent, Casey Close, then countered in the media that his client's value to the team "cannot be overstated."
That led the way to today's latest, in which Close has reportedly decided to put an exact, tangible dollar figure on his client's supposed value, demanding $1 million for each Jeter intangible.
"His leadership is definitely one intangible," said Close. "Getting that for $1 million is a huge bargain. His grit, his moxie, his general clutchness. Those are just three more. His musk. He has a natural scent of a champion. That's a big one. What are we at $5 million already? The Yankees better stop me because I could quickly and easily get to $100 million a year. He gets a lot of hot chicks to come to the game. $6 million."
Note: You'll have to go dumpster diving to get it.
If this guy is this emotional, let's hope he's not a Knicks fan.
