We got Cal in D.C. … and the Orioles legend told us that having to sit after 2,632 STRAIGHT GAMES really didn’t even register — ’cause all he cared about was playing baseball.
“I don’t look at it that way — that you’re extending a streak or ending a streak,” Ripken told Source Sports. “It never was something that I thought of as beginning or ending.”
Eli’s situation is a little different ’cause he didn’t get to make the call himself like Cal … but even so, Ripken thinks he’ll be alright now that he’s back under center.
