And, hey, can you blame him? After spending 20 years playing the most important position on the biggest stage in the country, he's earned himself a break. Now that Jeter no longer has playing obligations, he can work on cultivating a strong relationship with his significant other. What a concept!
Jeter's love life has long been a source of news among the New York media, and that will definitely continue with this announcement. Hopefully, once Jeter and Davis tie the knot, that will go away and he'll be able to happily enjoy life out of the spotlight as a married man.
Good for Jeter, we say. He ought to be able to finally enjoy his private life. We just wish the news didn't come as the Mets were playing in Game 1 of the World Series. Let the Mets have their moment, Jeter!
