Wow, I've never seen that soccer pic of Jeter! Serious looking kid.
Great hair! I think he wishes he had it still.
Go Baseball! I kind of dig all the crazy hats.
Phew, made it home. I hate it when your plane has to abort the take off. And the turbulence for most all of the flight
 Sounds like the Yankees' first half.
Not pastadivingjeter, but still safe.
Holy shit! Almost.
Ah, Bob Shepard intro.
Nice ovation. Reality is so much better than advertising. That somber Nike Ad is horseshit.
And now…A DOUBLE!
 Missed that, is it a Jeter tribute?
 Two-bagger! I'm late again..think Waingro grooved one to him?
And now a run scored!
Wow, so much nasty snark about Jeter on Twitter..so lame. Rob Neyer is such a Yankee-hating d#ick
Robbie, for shame!
10) It is and you'll see it. It's so somber it verges on parody. It features of host of celebrities--jocks and entertainers--and some regular folk. When they cut to Billy Crystal, I was like, CHECK PLEASE.
I prefer to appreciate Jeter the player, Jeter the Yankee on the field. Not in the name of selling fucking sneakers.
 The ad made my mom cry, so shut up.
Me likey. My last high school hit was a triple with a head first slide. : )
14) This isn't a good age to be revered because right behind it is a backlash. Both are exaggerated.
Miggy will do that.
Adam Wainwright is feeling very thankful that he pitches in the National League.
What a nightmare. You've coughed up three runs in the first inning, and now you're pitching to Jose Bautista.
 I didn't like the ad either. The best part of Jeter's retirement will be less Billy Crystal.
 I agree on all that. Billy Crystal..yikes..
Meanwhile in South Florida, A-Rod sits polishing his Silver-Slugger awards, muttering 'it was a loosey-goosey time..loosey-goosey..they were just like tic-tacs..' as a local GLOW starlet rubs his shoulders..
 I read your post last night but it was late. I only heard Hamilton's Homer Derby on the Radio. Whoever it was went nuts and I loved every minute of it. I watched the highlights when I got home. I didn't see too much of last night other than seeing Stanton nearly hit one OUT of the Stadium.
Hey, I get to root for Lester!
When it's all said and done, Jeter is a great player whose had a remarkable career--playing in NYC, as a sex symbol in the Internet Era without ever fucking up (so far). He might be the logical successor to Michael Jordan as a corporate pitchman (Tiger, Kobe, Lance, all marred by scandal). And he's a complete mystery. Nobody in the public knows shit about him.
BUT…we've had the pleasure of watching him play. And he has been fun to watch.
That's what we get. Getting to appreciate a consummate pro. All the rest, all his marketing and image, is just as mind-numbingly dull as the next guy.
After Jeter's hit down the line, and Trout hitting a triple, I rememberd something I saw on TV earlier. Check out this video from 2:10
Aw, gawd, Lestah!
Don't really mind seeing Lester get banged around. Fuck him.
 Trout's built like a bull.
Felix out already??
 Free agent at 28..maybe he'll come back East?? Good Jersey boy, I hear..
 They have 14 or 15 pitchers.
 Yeah, he's going to be a quadrillionaire.
He'll make 33million when he's 28..could be first 40mil a year player.
Damn, now Jetes may not get another AB.
Fox chooses stupid promos over showing the end of that replay. Stupid.
 I know. Ten WAR in each of his first two seasons. That is unfathomable.
 30 hrs and 49SB as a 20-year old! I'm getting all warm and tingly at his BR page..
Looks like the Trout-Harper battle is pretty one-sided so far..
Gameday is showing what looks like a nasty slider by Darvish to strike out Puig..
Man. Dudes are hitting rockets tonight.
Another AB after all.
Of course! : )
Single for Jetes!
Eyeshadow Miggy, don't want a broken arm in an exhibition game.
Um, eyeshadow = easy. ah, it's yeesh.
We'll I got up at three thirty in the morning, night all.
Why can't we get pitchers like Clippard?
G.Holland vs J.Harrison, feel that All-Star shine!
Question: Why to ball players and fans have to stand and take their hat off during the singing of "God Bless America." It's not out national anthem. In fact there is nothing official about the song at all.
Why not do it for "Imagine" or "Turkey In The Straw" or "Yankee Doodle Dandy" or "Fuck The Police."
I don't get it. But taking off your had and standing at attention is about as far from patriotism as you can get, IMHO.
ooops: "our [or America's] national anthem" "taking off your hat"
Playing God Bless America during the 7th inning was only a reaction to 9/11.
Now it strands as a symbol - and in the words of George Carlin, symbols are for the symbol-minded.
 I like it! Thanks for clarifying. The Japanese do a lot of symbolic quasi-religious stuff, too. I'm always fighting with my wife about it.
Now my daughter bows before going under the tori (huge gate) into the shrine grounds (next door), which are big and beautiful enough to be our badminton court. I have stopped telling her it's bullshit. She'll find out some day on her own.
Of course, I still say "God bless you" when some one sneezes. Probably because no one else in this country does.
 Dude, I always clap and bow when entering a shrine. You ever seen what angry Japanese shrine ghosts can do to non-believers? They'll 'eff your shiz up, man!
 I take a whiz against the tori. Kind of like a baptism. Does that count?
 I'm sure you're aware that one of the ancient rituals for the Emperor at Itsukushima-Shrine was to purify the grounds by spreading his urine..and one other male bodily function...but let's not go there, the Uyoku Trolls may attack us.
Aaaah, so that's how they white-wash the fences.
