Last night on "The Late Show," David Letterman expressed his own yearning-- and the desire of millions of New York women-- to have dinner and catch a flick with New York Yankees star Derek Jeter.
While interviewing Jeter's ex-girlfriend Minka Kelly, Letterman-- a die-hard Yankees fan-- gushed about the shortstop and said, "I've always wanted to date Derek Jeter."
To which Kelly laughed and said, "I know."
Letterman was only joking, but that segment of the interview seemed to make the actress a little uncomfortable.
Jeter, New York's favorite son, and Kelly broke up a few weeks after the Yankees' "Captain" got his milestone 3,000th hit. It was later reported-- but not confirmed-- that she was involved with a co-star.
It was only a matter of time before Letterman veered from Kelly's real reason for appearing-- to promote her new TV show, "Charlie's Angels," and ask the sexy actress about her three-and-a-half year relationship with Jeter.
"I know you were in a romantic relationship with Derek Jeter," prodded the host. "It must have been great fun."
"He's a tremendous guy," Kelly shyly replied.
That's when Letterman jokingly made the great reveal.
Kelly was a good sport for appearing in a city where Jeter can basically do no wrong then face one of the Yankees' biggest fans on TV.
The Yankees, meanwhile, had just won the AL East division title earlier in the night after sweeping the Tampa Bay Rays.
I'm sure Jeter was too busy celebrating to watch.
