Last Call

The World series began tonight and for me this is always a time to focus on my favorite sport, baseball. This year however is a little different, not because my omnipresent team is not participating, but because I know there will be forever someone missing from this event in the future. Allow me to digress…

My daughter called me out on an experience that we were supposed to have and failed to during the summer. We were supposed to see Derek Jeter play for one last time. Realizing my failure I quickly dashed to the computer in a desperate attempt to see if I could redeem myself. Luckily the Yankees were playing a weekday game and it coincided with a short day respectfully at school and work for my daughter and I. Without hesitation I purchased the tickets to give my daughter the opportunity to say she watched Derek Jeter play in one of his last games ever at Yankee Stadium. I realize this probably means more to me now than it does to her, but one day she will remember and one day she will tell her children and her friends about our afternoon together watching a legend do what he did best and enjoying every minute of it!

Thanks Derek, for the memories, the championships, but most of all for being a Yankee!
