Derek Jeter orders Italian, gets a side order of extra attention

derek-jeter-gordon-beckham.JPGIt's no secret that the ladies love New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter.

Currently affixed to the arm of "Friday Night Lights" star Minka Kelly, the captain has racked up a pretty impressive list of love interests during his time in Manhattan.  And it seems that some girls are willing to try anything to get an audience with Mr. Jeter.

This includes trying to piggyback on a food delivery to his apartment, causing a scene in the lobby and crying to the doorman that you're his No. 1 fan.

A hostess from Nino's Positano at 47th and Second invited herself along on a food run to Jeter's pad Sunday night because she wanted to meet the Sportsman of the Year, who is a regular costumer of the eatery.

After grabbing the food from the deliveryman, she tried in vain to get access to Jeter's place, causing a brouhaha in the lobby as other building tenants look on.

It turns out that the plan didn't work so well for the self-described superfan.

Nino himself (not a New Yorker, but the Daily News paints him as a big shot) evidently fired the hostess when he learned of the behavior.

"I'll take Jeter over that bimbo any day," he said.
