#2 Now and Forever – My Review of Derek Jeter’s Monument Park Ceremony

I’m a lifelong Yankee fan and Derek Jeter is far and away my favorite Yankee. He, for 20 years was the heart and soul of the New York Yankees. Yesterday the organization honored Jeter by giving him a plaque in Monument Park and retiring his #2 jersey.

As expected the Yankees did a great tribute to Derek and he gave a classy speech.

I watched the whole thing and really enjoyed it. Derek became the Yankee shortstop while I was in high school and retired when I was a full grown man. Thinking about his career made me think about my life through those years. My life changed in so many ways over those years but the Yankees and Derek Jeter were always a constant. It was special to see.

Now onto the negatives:

  • It would have been nice to sweep the doubleheader yesterday. The best way to pull that off would have been for Tanaka to not get shelled in the 1st inning.
  • Then there is the matter of the Derek Jeter plaque, it looks nothing like him. It just looks like a fat guy in a Yankee hat.
  • Michael Kay and John Sterling have no business near the field. They should have hired Ryan Seacrest.
  • I was hoping that during the video montage Jeter would get butt naked, lay down on a couch and watch it while screaming: “YEAH JEETS!” That unfortunately did not happen.

All in all though it was a real good ceremony. Congrats #2 and thank you for the memories.
