Derek Jeter: My Final Yankee Stadium Game Was 'Like You're At Your Own Funeral'

Amid the celebrations of his career, a somewhat morbid thought crossed Derek Jeter's mind during his unforgettable final game at Yankee Stadium.

While visiting the "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Thursday, Jeter offered some details on his experience of that dramatic night in the Bronx. The All-Star shortstop admitted that he was holding back tears throughout the game, and that he even prayed for "one more magical moment," right before he delivered just that, in the form of a 9th inning walk-off single. But Jeter also revealed that he found the video montage tributes to him a little unsettling, saying "[it's] almost like you're at your own funeral."
