This is Nike’s official salute to Jeter, whose legacy with the company is second only to its titular namesake.
the Nike demographic isn't limited to inner city kids.
Is there any more loathsome business model than Nike?
I used to support this company when I was buying cleats. They made quality products and refused to pay for athletic endorsements. I only stopped once they focused on softball exclusively.
I turned to soccer cleats a while back (because baseball shoes don't exist in the UK). In 30 years I'd never worn a baseball shoe that felt comfortable, but ever soccer shoe I've ever worn felt great! So it's going to be soccer shoes for me from here on out.
made it through baseball’s most turbulent era without an arrest or a PED scandal.
Of course, the universe never existed before Nike came along
Do you keep them in the same bucket as your socks?
It’s a moving tribute for a guy who made it through baseball’s most turbulent era without an arrest or a PED scandal.
Yet if Nike wasn't successful among inner city kids, I bet most of the rest of their "fashion" demographic goes away too.
Is this really that big of an achievement? Where were the moving tributes for Mike Mussina, Kenny Lofton, Bernie Williams, Johnny Damon, Jeff Kent, John Smoltz, Andres Galarraga, John Olerud, Chuck Finley, Marquis Grisson, Edgar Renteria, Javier Vazquez, Robin Ventura, etc.?
It seems a bit odd for Jeter to film a scene for his own tribute commercial.
It was generally tiresome, but was that Adam Horowitz showing up there in the middle? I thought so, and I may have gotten misty at that one, given recent events.
Too much singing in german.
rep in the game isn't as high as Jeter's?
Regarding Jeter, can we make the some criticism about him that we made about Jordan in that he didn't use his fame to voice his opinions like Ali did?
P.S. You know the easiest way to avoid all these over-the-top tributes? Don't watch them. I've yet to see a single one, and I doubt if I've missed much.

Why is Jeter so much more revered than players like Chipper Jones and Craig Biggio?
It was easy to avoid the Astros ceremony for Jeter but avoiding the countless tributes on MLBN, ESPN, Fox Sports, etc. is like trying to navigate a German minefield without the map....
