Actors, Not NY Mets Players in NIKE Tribute Ad to Derek Jeter

Nike/Jordan Brand will air a tribute ad tonight during the MLB All-Star game for Derek Jeter. In baseball a tip of the cap to the opposing team\player is a sign of respect.

From Red Sox fans, Jon Lester to Spike Lee and Michael Jordan the ad shows the level of respect Jeter has garnered over 20 seasons. And even in this moment of the New York Mets come off as clowns.

For the record I don’t know what’s involved in getting the rights to show players images in a commercial like this, but I have to believe there could have been a better way to handle this. Derek Jeter is ‘The Captain’ of the Yankees and David Wright is ‘The Captain’ of the Mets; it would have been great to see Wright tip his cap to Jeter. Instead we have actors with blurred faces/numbers and a blurred faced Mr Met.

Maybe the Mets had nothing to do with the blurring, but as any Mets’ fan knows this has the Wilpons written all over this.

As always….

If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
