Okay, so call me a selfish little brat, but if there was ever anyone out in this world that deserved to meet, participate in a batting clinic, have lunch with and be photographed with Derek Jeter, it would be me. I have always been a fan of Jeter. It all started out in the 8th grade when I saw his photograph on the cover of a magazine on my teacher’s desk. Back then it was just teenage lust, but now I admire him in every shape, way, and form.
If I had known about the UD1 Scoreboard Challenge promotion cards starting last year, and if I was seven… I could have won this contest, but instead some girl and a few other rug rats won.
I can’t even afford a damned Jeter auto on Ebay and these lucky little kids get to spend the day with the guy! It’s just not fair, I tell you!
Excuse the rant, but I have never been so jealous! At least I get to see him play against the Marlins. Maybe I’ll get to meet him there, right? 🙂
Anyhow, congrats to the kids that won this awesome prize. It’s a blessing, an honor, and definitely a privilege to be able to spend the day with Derek Jeter. I hope that they really enjoyed it.
I should have been one of those kids!
