Why I Like the Yankees
Two words: Derek Jeter. This is how I want my kids to play the game, whether it's baseball or life.
Yes we need to keep both those things (baseball and life) in perspective - after all, neither means anything apart from the context of a relationship with God. I just think that this is the type of thing Paul had in mind when he told Timothy to consider the example of the faithful soldier, the hardworking farmer, and the athlete who competes according to the rules (2 Tim 2:3-7).
Jeter is a great athlete, and he plays the game the way it was meant to be played - humbly, and all out. He's the reason why I like the Yankees.
