One can never understate the importance of one Derek Jeter, who is now in Davos, Switzerland rubbing elbows with heads of state, hobnobbing with elite financiers, and descending upon Illuminati-grade crudite platters with the world’s most powerful at the world’s most influential global policy forum.
The topic on his mind? Lance Armstrong, of course:
In what may be a Davos first, this year’s event sees the arrival of a Major League Baseball star with the rumored presence of Derek Jeter. Both Reuters and Fox Business were reporting that the Yankees legend will be a guest Wednesday at a luncheon sponsored by Pepsi, which owns Gatorade. Jeter endorses Gatorade. See the logic?
On Twitter, The Daily Beast and Newsweek editor-in-chief Tina Brown tweeted: “Derek Jeter on @lancearmstrong, ‘Should have admitted mistake and moved on.’ He fooled everyone‘ @davos.”
2 to 1 German Chancellor Angela Merkel gets tipsy and asks Jeter to sign her boob.
