I come here not to hate Derek Jeter, but to praise him on this day of his retirement announcement. And show this picture that perfectly captures his intangible grace, calmness, and winningness. (The hate is reserved for the media-industrial complex that built a very good player into a flawless immortal with gilded loins, perfect manners and unblemished awesomeness.)
As a Red Sox fan, I always respected and feared Jeter. The game will miss him, though I can't say that I'll be upset when #2 isn't in the Yankee lineup.
