A Jeter fan

My wife Eva and I were with friends at Yankee Stadium to see Derek Jeter hit a home run after being out with another injury. What was remarkable was that he did it on his first swing.

The Yankees won as Jeter set the tone for the rest of the game. Jeter brought us all to our feet, cheering a great player who will not quit. The icing on the cake was that this happened on my wife’s birthday. I could not have bought her a better present if I tried. The magic is back. Kudos, Derek Jeter for bringing hope back to the Yankees!
