You Could Live in Derek Jeter’s Castle in New York (For a Price)

Iconic Yankee, Derek Jeter, is selling his “single family” home in Greenwood Lake, New York, for $14,750,000.

Apparently in Derek Jeter language, “single family” means six bedrooms, seven full baths, and five half-baths. So, if you’re a mega-fan of No. 2, have a thing for old colonial style (the house was built in 1915), or define “single family” by the same ludicrous terms, this could be your new digs.

Locals around the neighborhood in Warwick Town know Jeter’s house as Tiedemann Castle because it’s a big damn house. A gate allows entry beyond the 6-foot stone wall where the restored castle is divided into two parcels that make up the estate, including a main house, guest house, pool house, infinity pool, magnificent gardens, lagoon, boat house, and more.

I repeat: “single family.” Which I guess makes sense, considering there’s only one elevator.

There are, however, four indoor kitchens, perhaps that way you, your partner, and two kids can have their own cooking spaces. (Pork chops in one and monkey bread in another!) The outdoor kitchen with rustic wood-burning fireplace can be shared by everyone.

The total 4.01 acres of Derek Jeter’s New York castle stretches down to views of Greenwood Lake, within eyeshot of the New Jersey border. Climb a turret stairway for access to the roof and the views intensify ten-fold.

Of course, if you end up living in the home of Mr. November, you’re required to come in clutch for your friends and throw a weekly barbecue in the summer. Entertain your rowdy mates at the pool house, complete with expansive patio space. There’s also a game room and “Great Room” which sounds … great?

And with a property this massive, you better believe there’s a handful of escape dens that offer peace and quiet from your massive “single family.” Sorry, we just can’t get over that.

Tiedemann Castle was listed by Diane Mitchell with Wright Brothers Real Estate in early July, and believe me if we had $15 million we’d sprint to buy it.

Did you not hear, this was Derek Jeter’s house. You know, the man who’s dated Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Minka Kelly, Jordana Brewster, Hannah Davis, and Adriana Lima. The legend that since his rookie year on the Yankees in 1996 through to his Captain days of 2003-2014 embodied all that is magical about the sport of baseball.

Hell yeah, we want to live in Jeter’s castle, park in Jeter’s garage, and pee in Jeter’s toilet.

And, for just that pesky little sum of $14.8 million, we can.

The best Stephen King movies made from Stephen King books (and where to watch them)
If you're scared of clowns or haunted cars, this isn't the list for you


The only thing more thrilling than a Stephen King book is a film adapted from one of his novels. The long-time author is one of the most successful writers of his generation, and his spooky, cinematic settings have served as inspiration for some of Hollywood's most esteemed creatives. The best Stephen King movies often use the source material as a basis for the film, and then the directors put their own twist on the story to pull the audience in even more. From Stanley Kubrick to Rob Reiner, famous filmmakers have operated within their own framework to turn otherwise forgotten Stephen King books into some of the most beloved of the last 40 years. These are the best Stephen King movies made from the best Stephen King books. These pictures range from coming-of-age stories to horrifying science fiction classics.

"Most guys don't think about what bar of soap they use when they are washing their body. Let's face it, they're probably still using the soap your mommy bought for her little man. Is that what you want? To smell like mommy's little man?"

The opening of many of the advertisements from Dr. Squatch feels less like a commercial and more like a skit that you would actually stay and pay attention to. It reminds us of 20 years ago when Geico introduced the cavemen and kept us watching commercials instead of taking the opportunity to go to the bathroom. It is a soap made for men, according to them, "men who build things, men who open the pickle jar on the first try, and men who catch foul balls without spilling their beer."

Laundry Sauce detergent pods for divine-scented laundry.

Most laundry detergents come in the same boring scents, the same uninspired packaging, and the same goopy, unpleasant format – seriously, what do they put in these bottles? Take a quick stroll down any detergent aisle, and you’ll see and smell a spring breeze, crisp linen, or intense fresh, whatever that means. They use a lot of the same aromas and just slap different names on the labels, too. Sure, doing laundry is a necessity, but surely there’s a way to make it more fun. There must be something better than an “intense” or “crisp” aroma.
