Blue Monday - Derek Jeter's Kayak

Hello! Welcome to Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Please leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments. If it's too much for one day, come back later in the week. Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!

Happy Fall Y'all!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My Blue today is Yankee Navy Blue .

Even though he plays baseball for the New York Yankees, shortstop Derek Jeter has made Tampa Bay his home for over twenty years. He's retiring from baseball and plans to remain in the area. This past week, the Tampa Bay Rays had a nice way of saying "goodbye" while saying at the same time, "it's good you're sticking around."




They presented him with several gifts, one of which was a tricked-out kayak, "complete with Navy Blue pinstripes and his iconic number 2. The Yankee's logo also adorns the front." (Josh Cascio, FOX 13 News) You can click on the picture to enlarge it so that you can see the details.

I'm sure the kayak moves along in the water more swiftly with the blue than if it had no blue at all! ;)

Derek Jeter is such a great baseball player and a real gentleman. He will be missed by the Yankees, Sally. This is a really nice gift by Tampa to Derek!

Good morning Sally, We are in Raleigh this week for Senior Games competition. Fun times. We compete in bowling today and tomorrow.

Derek Jeter is very smart staying in the beautiful city of Tampa. The area is awesome. Maybe you will run in to him one day. Lol. His gift of a personalized kayak is awesome.

Happy Blue Monday
Love, Jeanne

PS: The Biotin is working!!!

I have heard of this fellow, but I am not a baseball fan. You find some of the most interesting and different blue presentations. I like your new header too.

What a beautiful gift to Derek Jeter and a lovely way to remind him that his presence is still appreciated! I have never been to a pro-baseball game, but did love to play 3rd base when I was a kid. I wonder if you attend the games. Thanks for hosting, Sally. Always love your variety of blues!

Hannah said...

The photo of the scoreboard with Derek is great. How interesting to give him a kayak.

Love Sally! My English is not very good. But I hope you understand me anyway. A love idea to say goodbye and give a Jajak. Kayaking is very exciting and it's great fun! I've tried it many times.
Greetings
