Following his emotional sendoff in the 2014 MLB All-Star Game, Derek Jeter will be getting back to work on the second half of his final season with the New York Yankees. Inevitably, Jeter will go down as one of the greatest players to ever play the game for many reasons. I take a look at the five reasons why he can be labeled the "ultimate athlete" of all time and recipient of worldwide male envy.
Known for her roles in the Fast and Furious movies, Brewster and Jeter dated briefly between 2002 and 2003.
Not much is known about the rumored relationship between Johansson and the Captain in 2004. Despite very little public appearances together, rumors circulated that this fling was short and unmemorable.
2006 was quite the memorable year for Jeter as he dated both Jessica Biel and the No. 1 on this top-five list. For a time that year, Biel and Jeter provided the tabloids with many photo ops. She might not top MVP awards or World Series Championships, but she was yet another reason men envied Jeter in his prime.
This was one of Jeter's longest relationships as a Yankee (at least to public knowledge), dating from 2008 through 2011. The "Friday Night Lights" star was said to have tamed the Captain in his older years before their breakup in 2011. Named 2010's "Sexiest Woman Alive", Kelly was a fan favorite with Jeter (and everyone knows his dating life is popular among fans).
How do you become most envied athlete of all time in the eyes of men? You date one of the most famous Victoria Secret models of all time. Dating briefly in 2006 (along with Jessica Biel -- separately, of course), Jeter and Lima became sensations among fans and tabloids alike. Lima also helped Jeter secure the title of "most envied athlete of all time".
