I remember back in 1987, I was so excited to get home from school and chores to be able to watch Don Mattingly's eight game home run streak continue. He was a symbol of hard work and perseverence and came to be my favorite Yankee of all time. Night after night he would come through under immense pressure. It was so amazing to watch and those memories have provided me the motivation to persevere in day to day issues affecting my very own life. I will forever be a Yankee fan and will ensure my future kids are the same.
