Forget Davos; the summit we care about happened two weeks ago in Tampa. The Boss and A-Rod. “(Steinbrenner) wants me to lead and lead by example and not to try to fit in,” A-Rod told ESPN’s Bob Klapisch. “With my talent people will follow naturally.”
One place he chose not to fit in: Derek’s charity golf tourney, held in Tampa last week. Instead of tee-ing up with His Airness, Reggie, LT, the Rocket, and Gretzky [cast for The Apprentice 4?], A-Rod stayed home and hit the gym.
And one more thing: he’s not apologizing for slapping Bronson’s glove: “Jim Joyce told me, ‘if you’d knocked the crap out of (Arroyo) it would’ve been legal because he was in your way.’ So if I had a chance to do it again, I would’ve tried to run him over.”
