Jeter could act arrogant or do and say whatever he wants, but he always kept true to his laurels. People wonder what lies beneath his cool and constructed facade. Jeter’s teammates simply say that he puts on no facade and does not want the fame or money to change him. (White) Jeter claims that he played for respect, “This year, a lot of kind things have been said to me,” Jeter said. “That’s what you play for, that’s what you try so hard to earn — respect. From everyone.” (“Derek Jeter Has Earned Universal Respect during His Hall of Fame Career”). In his last year, Jeter 's campaign slogan created by his fans was “Re2pect” and it payed homage to all the incredible things he has done and the respect he has shown others. Jeter has inspired many generations by the way he lives his daily life, which makes him a cultural icon. His sportsmanship inspired kids to do the classic Jeter move at shortstop or coin the phrase of “play the field like Jeter.” Kids of all ages aspire to play the game of baseball like him. Adults, especially yankee fans, also wish they were like and respectfully look…

    I noticed in the Yankees game how their was a well balanced mix of men, women, and children, as well as a balanced mix of races; however the race mix was not as evenly spread as the gender mix.

Relating race to socioeconomic status, I noticed how the black and hispanic population also increased as you rose higher within the stadium.…

    separated to be properly disposed of later on. From the amount of trash that I picked up I learned that the trash disposed on the ground was a collective effort. In the span of ten hours I managed to fill two bags with trash, one bag with recyclables, and pick up about ten cardboard boxes.

    thoughts on the second half of the game. However, despite the second half disappointment, the trip was a success. Not only did my grandson who is a big LSU fan get to see the campus and attend a game in Tiger Stadium, I had a whole day and night to pick on and aggravate my beautiful granddaughter. Life does not get much better than that! Our seats in the stadium were located just above cloud level. My acrophobia, which usually kicks into high gear on the first wrung of a ladder, never…
