Maybe this time it’s really real? The New York Yankees’ Derek Jeter and actress Minka Kelly have a November wedding date reserved at New York’s posh Oheka Castke, according to the New York Post, which says it did undercover snooping in bride’s clothing to get the info.

[Updated at 9:39 a.m., Jan. 11: Click here to check out the Big League Stew rundown of conflicting reports. A guy at NBC Sports calls foul, saying the date is for Jeter’s sister. A guy at Sports Illustrated says yes. The Ministry? We’re really more concerned with the whole Pete Carroll situation.]

Their engagement had been reported and denied in August; back then, however, the rumor did mention a fall wedding date, after baseball season was over.

So Derek and Minka may very well be engaged. Or maybe Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have cleverly booked the joint under the name ‘Jeter.’


If it’s neither, can we charge someone with an error?
