Which current player would you elect for president?
Now when I searched the words Jeter president on twitter the number of tweets was honestly overwhelming.
And fans are already campaigning for the Captain for 2016, as the twitter hashtag #jeter2016 is starting to generate some buzz on the social network too.
There is also an entire separate Facebook page called Derek Jeter for President in 2012, which is a tad ridiculous, I guess.
Now MLB Network was not alone, as ESPN’s Sportsnationalso ran a presidential poll but nominees where pro-athletes from all different
sports, and sadly Jeter came in a far-off second to Broncos QB Peyton Manning. Manning dominated the election as almost every state in the country is in pink (please refer to picture at right).
And lucky for him that Peyton Manning – Derek Jeter wasn’t on the other side of the ticket….but more like this is possibly the dumbest thing I have ever actually have had to to write about.
VOTE JETER 2016 – A President in pinstripes.
That does have a nice ring to it.
