NY Yankees Shortstop Derek Jeter will be in the hall of fame. He is very active in charities and helps out young kids. The last thing Jeter should do is break the Jordan rule and become vocal on politics.
In a surprise move, Derek Jeter was spotted in Davos, Switzerland. He was not there to raise money for charities or to hook up with foreign exotic women. Jeter was there to discuss, Climate Change. A Baseball Shortstop is now an expert on Climate Change! Even funnier, Pepsi is sponsoring him at Davos!
DAVOS, Switzerland — As global political and business leaders gather here for the World Economic Forum this week, New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter hopes climate change is addressed.
“I was in New York for Hurricane Sandy,” Jeter told The Dispatch this morning, following a private function in Davos, Switzerland. Jeter is here for the Forum this week with Pepsi.
“It’s just something that’s gotten so much attention,” Jeter said of climate change. “Regardless of how you feel about it, it’s something that needs to be addressed because we’re seeing more and more natural disasters each year, it seems like. Something has to be causing it.”
Derek Jeter may soon become Charles Johnson’s favorite baseball player, but this hurts his image with others. When I first read this article I was laughing. But this publicity stunt is very effective. Progressives get these athletes and entertainers to become spokes people for their pet causes. Do not dismiss Derek Jeter becoming a Climate Change spokes person. This could be very effective with low information voters.
As a NY Yankee fan, I am disappointed in Derek Jeter becoming a propagandist on AGW. Even worse is Pepsi promoting his new found activism. I wish athletes would just do their jobs and corporations not focus on making profits.
Maybe the Republicans can get Alex Rodriquez to discuss Sequester and the debt limit!
