I know what happened to Derek Jeter. I watched it, live, on television, as it was happening. And, I got all the details as I stayed up to watch the post-game coverage on YES.
And, my 8-year old son knows that happened. I told him as soon as he woke-up this morning. And, he then quickly ran to his iPod to watch the video replay.
But, that’s it. This morning, we’re both going about our business, taking care of what we need to get done, etc. And, we’re not talking about Jeter, or the Yankees, at all. And, that’s strange – given our passion for the team and the fact that they have a playoff game to play today.
Shock? Denial? Our brains and emotions overtaken by the somber event? Some combination of all that?
Are we the only Yankees fans feeling this way, the morning after?
