As a Boston girl, I'm a Red Sox fan, through and through.
But, my father-in-law is all about the Bronx Bombers, so, we recently had a meeting of the minds: a family get-together at Fenway Park in Boston for Derek Jeter's last baseball game.
As a mom of an 11 year old who loves sports, I have to say, I get extremely frustrated that high-paid athletes don't take their positions as "role models" more seriously. My son can't turn on ESPN without hearing about the latest controversy, involving drugs or violence, ie: the Ray Rice scandal.
But, Jeter is a gentleman. An earnest, hard worker, he always played the game with quiet confidence, showing respect...
