What Jeter Did

by Christopher Paul on July 10, 2011

From the best (in IMHO) and only sports blog I subscribe to, American McCarver:

“He had faced a moment of intense pressure, an opportunity for historic heroics, and came through in the most perfect conceivable way. He thanked the crowd. He acknowledged David Price with a respectful gesture. (No pitcher wants to be the answer to this sort of future trivia question.) He pointed to his parents and girlfriend in the stands. He exalted in the moment.

The game went on.”

For my generation, Jeter defines the Yankees. Like Joe DiMaggio or Lou Gehrig from years ago, all three embody something special about spending their entire career in New York and being a great but humble player while doing it.
