Yankees manager, Joe Girardi took moment away from baseball Monday afternoon and headed up to Oxnard, California to spend some time with America’s team, the Dallas Cowboys. Girardi watched and spoke to the team for a few minutes after practice. Like most guest, Girardi had words of encouragement, almost mimicking Cowboy coach, Jason Garrett, mentions Cowboys All-Pro tight-end, Jason Whitten.
According to Clarence Hill of Star-Telegram:
“It was a great lesson,” tight end Jason Witten said. “He talked about we all know what your goals are but the way you get there is to be great today, kind of the Jason slogan. Be your best today and worry about tomorrow because if you take care of today all that stuff will work out as an athlete. I think it’s great. Those guys play 162 games. It’s great or guys like us in the middle of camp to realize it’s all about better now. You can’t worry about week 17 now. You got to get there. Hopefully we are better cause of what we are doing right now.”
Hopefully, Girardi’s visit will inspire a team that has plenty of talent despite their mediocre play. Then again, visiting the Dallas Cowboys was probably more refreshing than dealing with the daily drama he faces everyday in Yankeeland!
