A Brief and Obvious Point about Gifts To Retiring Players Who Did Not Play For Your Team

Take This and GTFO
In road games, the player getting the farewell did not play for your laundry.

So if he is ostenta- tious enough to announce his retire- ment plans in advance, you owe him, well, nothing.

And giving him thoughtful gifts is silly at best and pathetic at worst, since it basically means that you are buying into the idea that some players and teams are more important than others, and by extension, more important than yours.

So, if you really want to give Derek Jeter what he deserves, when he comes to your town?

The hosting team gives him a check, the same as they do every other member of his team.

The hosting fans boo him if they care, and ignore him if they don't.

Moving on.
