Is Jason Varitek the new Derek Zoolander

We all know that Jason Varitek can do just about anything and get away with it. Maybe I overstated that just a little but it's no secret that he's beloved by all in Red Sox Nation and, by extension, New England. Yet it still came as a shock when I saw The Captain strutting his stuff down a fashion runway this week on

Varitek was a "model" in Bill Brett's Boston party and showed the fashion world that he's not only a baseball player but an "ambi-turner" as well. Here's the former Red Sox catcher in all his fabulous glory walking down the runway for the fine people of Beantown and beyond.

Next up for the Red Sox Renaissance man is the grand opening of the Jason Varitek "School for Catchers Who Can't Catch Good and Stuff." Sign me up!
