What’s your favorite Derek Jeter tribute? Gatorade v. Nike Jordan

Derek Jeter is No. 2 on your New York Yankess roster, but which commercial salute to the Captain’s retirement next weekend is No. 1 in your heart?

Nike’s Jordan brand earlier this season released “RE2PECT,” a star-studded spot no one thought could be topped, with luminaries from Michael, Tiger, Joe Torre and Rudy to Melo, Phi — even Boston’s Jon Lester and a trio of Mets:

Today Gatorade took its own swing.

Its ad agency roped off a section around Yankee Stadium and let The Captain roam free.

Jeter asked that it be about him thanking fans. He even suggested the accompanying tune (If you guessed “New York, New York” you’re close….).

The looks on peoples’ faces were genuine, the commercial’s producers said.:

Gatorade is following with a full-page print ad written by Jeter in the New York Daily News and Sports Illustrated on Sept. 28-29, the weekend of his final game — at Boston.
