Two Maryland state troopers reportedly asked Jeter, Swisher for autographs during game

License, registration, gift basket, I ain’t got none.

The top of the ninth inning was pretty action-packed in the Yankees dugout Sunday night. Not only were the Bronx Bombers putting a five-spot on the board—pulling away for an eventual 7-2 victory—but two police officers asked Derek Jeter and Nick Swisher for autographs, according to the New York Post.

From the Post:

  “Swish was livid,’’ said a person who witnessed the stupid request.

  Asked if that ever happened before, Jeter said, “What do you think?”

OK, the libertarians are right. Police powers have gone too far.

Jeter, I can understand. But Swisher? Really? He's a good player, but come on.

Well this is one time where they didn't have the pull the "Do you know who I am?" card with police.

You have to do more than ask to earn a Derek Jeter gift basket.

I'd hate to ask what Jeter asks in return for a signed ball?

There are still Maryland State Troopers? Based on my experience their jobs seem to have been outsourced to speed-trap camera robots.

These fools don't know that you get a hot chick to ask on your behalf? I thought every guy knew that.

Covering up the top of the page for the old "murder confession" trick. Kudos to those Orioles fans for a good try.

Public officials in Maryland are corrupt. What else is new?
   10. Barnaby Jones Posted: October 09, 2012 at 04:01 AM (#4260177)
Why is this a thing?
   11. Lassus Posted: October 09, 2012 at 07:48 AM (#4260196)
Because:

A. Sell papers
B. Swisher and Jeter appeared to be babies about it.

Why is this a thing?


Maybe because the troopers' job is to keep fans from bugging the players, rather than to bug the players themselves?

Well robot controlled cars then - I travel the I-95 corridor quite frequently and it seems like the state police are everywhere.

Also - you are one deductive mother ######. Bunk!

Yep, I get hit by a speed trap camera robot in MD on my way back from Philly a few years ago. My last ticket.
