Thanks Captain 6/?

Derek’s been a leader from day one. He’s been the head of his class in every way, both on the field and in terms of character. … That’s hard to do. Being undefeated for 20 years? In New York City? That’s remarkable. When you realize, an hour before the game, 50,000 people are in their seats, ready to go, excited, energetic. When you see Michael Jordan andCal Ripken, two of the biggest icons of my lifetime — I thought it was a great day. I’m sorry I wasn’t there.
