Who Am I?


Derek J

Do you know who I am? If you don't you are really missing out. I truly am a rare gem. I draw spectators like Vegas does losers. People would swim the Great Lakes, climb Mt. Kilamanjaro, and run a marathon just to catch a glimpse of me. Onlookers can't seem to take their eyes off me. The oooohh's and aaaaahh's are plentiful; I am a worldwide household name. Rumor has it I'm one of a kind. My value is unparalleled. Put me in a crowd of superstars and everyone else looks common. 

But I'm not just another pretty face. My accomplishments are written all over me. I am a goal getter, record smasher, and crowd pleaser. Don't ever mistake me for a counterfeit; I'm an original all the way. No one can handle me. I'm untouchable. I will change my entire era of life solely because of my existence. There is constant bickering over who is the best: me or Jordan, me or Tiger. Yet I always seem to prevail. An investment in me would be a no risk situation. I am already destined to go down in history as one of the greatest ever. Every time I reach a new plateau people look and say "he's done." But I just keep on going. So am I Derek Jaeger from Tucson, AZ, or a 1952 Topps Baseball Mickey Mantle Rookie Card? Both fit the description respectively. Though there is one difference. Where the Mantle has peaked, I'm just getting started.
