RE2PECT for the man, the myth, the legend!

Aretha Franklin sang about it, many preach for it but only a few truly earn it, 
R-E-S-P-E-C-T ... Derek Jeter is one of them!

Have you seen the new Jordan commercial honoring #2? Check it out here if you haven’t seen it yet. It’s one minute and forty second of pure respect for a man and an athlete that will go down in the history books. 

When the 2014 MLB season comes to an end, the game will hang up the jersey of another great. Now I may be a bit more biased because #2 wears pinstripes and I’m a Yankee fan, but the respect he receives from athletes, actors, public figures and dignitaries alike is how you know he’s a true "mench.”

Kids need more athletes like Jeter in the game to look up to. What these athletes don’t always keep in mind is that kids are hanging on their every move (good, bad, disrespectful, etc.) and they need to wear their role model hats a bit more seriously.

Since his first day in the big leagues Jeter has done this. The Yankees will not only be loosing a great baseball player, but an all around great guy. 

Thank you for the memories #2
