Love him or hate him, he is one of the best to ever play the game. Maybe he hurt you and your team in the past, but this night will be a night to honor the Captain. If you thought Mo's send off at Citi Field last year was raucous, just wait until Jeter comes out on the field.

Who are you kidding? There really is nothing else to do or watch on a Tuesday night. Yes it's an exhibition game. But seriously there are no other sports to watch that night and the only alternative to staying home to watch it is going out...and ending up in front of a T.V. showing the game.
