Phillies fans might not have been interested in hearing a pep talk about teamwork last night from Derek Jeter, but at least the Yankees shortstop popped up on the right show - NBC's "The Biggest Loser."
Jeter was scheduled to be a celebrity guest on the "reality" show, where contestants are vying to lose weight. His role: To stoke up the players in a challenge involving baseball.
The episode was filmed, of course, long before producers could have known for sure that Jeter's Yanks would be in the World Series.
"That worked out nicely, eh?" an NBC spokeswoman said.
