Emotional Tribute To OUR Derek Jeter

by Kim Brixton

It may bring a tear to your eye or a chill to your spine.

For me....I didn't just get misty...I started to sob....started actually getting misty at the start, then at :30 a full boo hoo when his parents, sister and nephew tipped their hat. Ten seconds later, the tears turned into chuckles after seeing a pair of Boston Red Sox fans reluctantly tipping their lids.

The extended NIKE ad honoring Kalamazoo Central Grad Derek Jeter will air during tonight's All Star Game.

You can watch it now---
