The Last Opening Day for Derek Jeter

I took my son, Jack, on a roadtrip to see the Yankees play the Astros for the last opening day for Derek Jeter.

It was a much different atmosphere from the final three games of last season when the Yankees closed things out in Houston.

This time around, the Houston fans showed up, and they were excited.

It didn’t hurt for them that CC Sabathia got lit up and it was 6-0 after the second inning.

At first, I was bummed, but then I figured it’s a long season, so let’s enjoy the game, and that’s what we did.

The Yankees did have a couple potential rallies and at the end of the day, it was a nice experience to be there together with my son for a little bit of history.

Plus, he got to have a lot of junk food.

I’m looking forward to seeing Jeter in Arlington, TX later in the season, and I’ll see at least one home game when I’m in NYC for business in August.

And maybe the very last home game!
