Derek Jeter: part owner of a company that sells high-tech men’s underwear that refrigerates your genitals

Derek Jeter’s business interests aren’t limited to children’s books. He’s also into underwear referred to as “Tempur-Pedic banana hammocks.” From Page Six, of course:

Move over, Victoria, Derek Jeter has an even bigger “secret.”

The Yankee slugger’s retirement plan includes becoming an underwear mogul, Page Six has learned.

The slugger is a secret owner of Frigo RevolutionWear — a customized men’s underwear brand that sells skivvies more colloquially known as “Tempur-Pedic banana hammocks.” The high-tech undies sell for $100 a pair and include a “soft lock adjustment system” plus a “patented pouch” dubbed the “Frigo Zone.” (We’ll leave the zone’s location to your imagination.)

The guy who runs the company has said that the product “separates your genitals from the rest of your body . . . It lifts a little bit so [guys] feel the comfort.”

$100 for that? Hasn’t anyone ever heard of Gold Bond?

And while I know it’s a cliche to note this every single time this kind of thing comes up, I really do wonder how this would be received if A-Rod was an investor.

Yesterday the New York Yankees got Aaron Judge back. Today they activated closer Aroldis Chapman.

Chapman has been on the disabled list since August 22 with left knee tendinitis. Before going down the 30-year-old fireballer registered a 2.11 ERA and 31 saves with an 84/27 K/BB ratio in 47 innings of work.

In his absence David Robertson, Dellin Betances and Zach Britton have all been bumped an inning back to decidedly mixed results. Now Chapman is back in the mix.
