Fallon and The Roots Audition For Derek Jeter
  • FRIDAY, AUGUST 09, 2013

New York Yankees longtime shortstop and beloved icon Derek Jeter stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night to talk with the booming talk show host. While Fallon has notably played a Red Sox fan on the big screen, he expressed his undying love for the Yankees and their captain, and he even provided Jeter with a few walk-up songs for his next plate appearance. Jimmy, backed by his house band, The Roots, auditioned his first song to Mr. November only to be laughed aside. But Jimmy had another song up his sleeve: a hardcore rampage that Jeter kindly dismissed as "not really my genre." Finally, Fallon stepped out of the third chance to give The Roots their full-fledged attempt, which got the future Hall of Famer grinning with delight. The Roots may have just made a sale.
Hopefully Jeter makes his way off the DL soon (and this time stays healthy). And don't be surprised to see him walking out to The Roots' new personalized masterpiece next time Bob Sheppard's voice emits from the loud stadium speakers.
