“He’s like Derek Jeter. Very calm”

That’s Yankees President Randy Levine. Talking about one of his show dogs:

Meet sweet Mitch, a 5-year-old yellow Labrador retriever. He’s a rookie at America’s top dog show, yet he comes with a pinstripe pedigree — his co-owner is New York Yankees President Randy Levine.

“He’s like Derek Jeter. Very calm,” Levine said.

So on the week baseball spring training begins for pitchers and catchers, Levine will be among the pinschers and cockers. The Westminster Kennel Club show starts Monday, with Mitch set to walk the show ring on Tuesday morning.

Mitch: a true Yankee. Unlike that A-Rod.

In other news, after all of the things I’ve heard said and reported about Levine, I thought it would be impossible to humanize the guy. This helps a lot, though.
