But I was a little tired of hearing how all the haters were saying that he was too old or the worst-fielding shortstop in the majors before the season started. So Gia and I decided that we were going to root for Derek Jeter this year. We always rooted for him, but we were going to root for him like he was our favorite player.
And he delivered. At 35 he had one of the best offensive seasons of his career while playing outstanding defense at shortstop. And then he passed Lou Gehrig as the all-time hits leader for the Yankees. Lou fucking Gehrig!
He ain't done. Not by a long shot.
UPDATE: Yankees win the first game 7-2. Rock and fucking roll!
Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. And a quick "fuck you" to Red Sox while I'm at it. Not to their fans (Candy), but just the team. Okay?
