It’s Called ‘The Weather’

Posted by on Jan 26, 2013 at 7:23 am

Apparently while rehabbing his broken ankle New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has been studying to be an amateur climatologist.

Derek Jeter interrupted his rehab work on his surgically repaired left ankle to rub shoulders with the world’s most powerful at the Davos Economic Forum. Jeter — invited by Pepsi — said he hopes climate change would be discussed: “I was in New York for Hurricane Sandy . . . 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.”

Clearly he’s concerned about the planet. Meanwhile, his mansion uses enough energy to power a small country.

Perhaps he can team with Tom Brady to lecture us about Earth Hour this year.

    Whatever happened to the unabashedly decadent rich? Shutup and enjoy the spoils already!

    Declining star at end of career and coming off a knee injury trying to figure out how to remain relevant to the NY media after his career is over. Parroting a Mike Lupica political screed is one way to do it, I guess. Up next will probably be A-Rod’s tome on why we need an assault weapons ban.

    Imagine the sports fan who listens to this self-serving drivel and works it into his opinions.

    The classic definition of “Low-Information”.

    Here’s an idea- baseball can go back to day games and save millions of tons of CO2 from all those lights.

    Oh- the decreased revenue ($$$ for Jeter) will make huge contracts unlikely.

    Looks like that home might be impacting a wetland, too. Is the Army Corps of Engineers aware?

    It’s not even low information. That statement is completely false.

    “Invited by Pepsi”. Time to go after the big corporations. Eliminate copyright and patent. Destroy them.

    Look real close and you can you see the stain on his shirt from sucking Al Gores Testicles?

    My theory, backed by impeccable scientific evidence provided by Dr. Michael Mann, is that the energy consumption of that house and the carbon emitted was enough to throw our world environment out of whack and that gave birth to, nurtured, and fed Hurricane Sandy.
