I love you, Derek Jeter. I always have, and I always will.
That being said, I didn’t take the news of your retirement very well. I understand you’re getting older, but I just never thought this day would come. However, this announcement has given me the perfect opportunity to reflect on what makes you (in my opinion) one of the greatest people in the entire world.
There’s less than 2 months until Opening Day, and just the thought of Derek leaving my TV screen makes me tear up. Consider becoming one of those athletes turned actors so I could see your pretty face all the time? Or a manager so I can still see you in your uniform? I know you want to own a team, but I just don’t think that’s enough screen time.
