ARod and Jeter now have ring in common

For once in his life, Alex Rodriguez does not care about being cool. He's going to wear his ring no matter what his teammates or anyone else says. And why not? If I had a ring like that, I'd be rocking it all day, every day.

ARod used to tell a story about how Derek Jeter once mailed him his 1996 World Series ring just to rub in the fact that he had one and ARod didn't. But the Yankee Captain can't tease him anymore about not having a ring. ARod finally has the ring he so long wished for in his hands and knowing that he played a tremendous part in getting it must make it even sweeter.

ARod will never catch up to Jeter's number of championships. Nor will he ever match Jeter in being on the receiving end of the undying affection of New York Yankees fans. But he and Jeter do have something in common: they are both World Series champs with the jewelry to prove it. And that's something ARod will have forever, no matter how the rest of his career plays out.

I guess Jeter will have to mess with someone else now that ARod has his ring. Curtis Granderson, perhaps?
