Derek Jeter is no longer the Prince of New York. He’s the Hit King.

The shortstop passed Lou Gehrig on the Yankees‘ all-time hits list on Friday night, singling against Orioles rookie Chris Tillman in the third inning.

Jeter was the center of attention from the moment the Yankees took the field, as the crowd waited out an 87-minute rain delay in order to witness history. Jeter received a loud ovation after catching a pop up to end the top of the first, then fans went crazy when he emerged from the dugout in between innings to prepare for his first at-bat.

Flahsbulbs popped continuously from the second he stepped into the batters box, as the crowd buzzed with anticipation. Jeter took Tillman’s first pitch for a called strike, then took a big hack at his second offering, falling into an 0-2 count.

Jeter took a ball, then fouled one back to the backstop, but Tillman caught him off-guard with a curveball, striking him out.

Jeter led off the third inning for his second at-bat, as Tillman started him off with a pair of balls. Jeter lined the 2-0 pitch past first baseman Luke Scott to move past Gehrig, a hit virtually identical to the one that tied Gehrig’s mark in the seventh inning on Wednesday.

The entire Yankees dugout emptied on to the field to congratulate Jeter, with Alex Rodriguez reaching him first, giving him a big hug. Each of Jeter’s teammates took their turn to show their support for him, then he acknowledged the crowd with a few tips of his helmet. Orioles players stood on the top step of their dugout, applauding Jeter for his accomplishment….

ACORN – it’s hard out there for a pimp…

Absolutely sickening. ACORN needs to be indicted under RICO. Our Justice Dept is busy getting Andrew ‘birth truther’ Sullivan off his pot possession arrest. Who’s politicizing JUSTICE? Team TOTUS that’s who.

By Alfred, Lord Tennyson

STRONG Son of God, immortal Love,
Whom we, that have not seen thy face,
By faith, and faith alone, embrace,
Believing where we cannot prove;
Thine are these orbs of light and shade;
Thou madest Life in man and brute;
Thou madest Death; and lo, thy foot
Is on the skull which thou hast made.
Thou wilt not leave us in the dust:
Thou madest man, he knows not why,
He thinks he was not made to die;
And thou hast made him: thou art just.
Thou seemest human and divine,
The highest, holiest manhood, thou:
Our wills are ours, we know not how;
Our wills are ours, to make them thine.
Our little systems have their day;
They have their day and cease to be:
They are but broken lights of thee,
And thou, O Lord, art more than they.
We have but faith: we cannot know;
For knowledge is of things we see;
And yet we trust it comes from thee,
A beam in darkness: let it grow.
Let knowledge grow from more to more,
But more of reverence in us dwell;
That mind and soul, according well,
May make one music as before,
But vaster. We are fools and slight;
We mock thee when we do not fear:
But help thy foolish ones to bear;
Help thy vain worlds to bear thy light.
Forgive what seem’d my sin in me;
What seem’d my worth since I began;
For merit lives from man to man,
And not from man, O Lord, to thee.
Forgive my grief for one removed,
Thy creature, whom I found so fair.
I trust he lives in thee, and there
I find him worthier to be loved.
Forgive these wild and wandering cries,
Confusions of a wasted youth;
Forgive them where they fail in truth,
And in thy wisdom make me wise.
