The New York Giants play the Washington Redskins Thursday night. We know that. There is something else going on tonight on the New York sports scene, however, and it can't be ignored. New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter plays the final Yankee Stadium game of his illustrious 20-year career Thursday. Use this as a Jeter Appreciation Thread.

I know many of you will be torn tonight, possibly flipping back and forth between the Giants game and the Jeter farewell. I know some of you are tired of the Jeter love that has been coming from everywhere except maybe Keith Olbermann lately.

Reality is Jeter's finale at the Stadium is on the minds of many New York sports fans. So, you might as well discuss it here with your friends at Big Blue View. Our friends at SB Nation's Pinstripe Alley, a place some of you might recall that yours truly ran once upon a time, have a wide range of Jeter coverage today. Stop by over there, as well.
