Off the field, my attention has totally switched to my son. It's been great
for us, because Ginny's parents are still around to help out with A.J. and
they're going to stay indefinitely. They help us out a lot. It's always nice
to come home and see his face, see him smiling at you. You can tell by all
his pictures that he loves to smile, that's all he does.
No matter what's
going on, seeing him lifts your day. That's nice.
Things have changed a lot for Ginny and me. We don't go out a lot at all. In
the past, we'd go out three or four nights a week to various events and
social gatherings. Now we spend a lot of time at home, enjoying the company
of each other and the company of our baby.
I still do a lot, but nowhere near as much as in the past. I'm still doing my
radio show - it's on ESPN radio (1050) instead of WFAN. I do a weekly TV show
that I film every week on my off day for the YES Network. That's a lot of
fun. Bob Papa's the host and we have fun filming that up in Stamford, Conn.
still do my luncheon for All-American Collectibles every other Tuesday, and
that's about it. Other than that, I'm pretty much home. It's nice.
We really didn't even do anything this off-season because Ginny was pregnant.
We didn't want to leave the country or really travel anywhere with her being
pregnant so we just relaxed. A lot of people asked me to do a lot of things
this year and I had an excuse to say no. I've been on the go for basically
three years straight.
I did a few off-season things like a commercial with my
brother for Visa, which is going to start running soon. I also did a few
national ad campaigns, like one for Reebok.
But everything's about my baby. All I do is worry about my kid. Everything I
do is focused around A.J. When I went on CBS during the bye week I took him
on air with me. He's the light of my life now. It's not about me or Ginny
anymore. It's about this little kid we're trying to make into a responsible
human being. It's fun.
