End of an Era

In yet another sign that no matter how young I feel I'm getting older by the day, Jason Varitek will retire this Thursday.
He came in what may be one of the most lopsided trades in history and leaves with 2 World Series championships, caught 4 no hitters and wore the Captain's C with pride. He also glove punched Slappy in the game that many feel sort of got that '04 team back on track and his Jersey is the only Red Sox jersey I own.
So long, Captain.
Job well done.
