Eli and C.C.

As a New York Yankees and football Giants fan, I've had great sports memories, most recently the Giants two Super Bowl-winning seasons and the Yankees' 2009 championship.

The 2019 season sees the official end of Eli Manning's run as starting quarterback and C.C. Sabathia's retirement. Playing sports is grueling, demanding the same high-level performance year in, year out, as all bodies wear down.

As hard as it is to see the end, I've always appreciated Eli and C.C.'s leadership qualities and clutch performances. You can ask more of an athlete than to vault his team to a title. I thank them both.
