to give the final keynote.
I'm not a fan of either player really, as a Celtics fan I hated Kobe (sports hate of course), and as a non-Yankees fan I never hated Jeter, just thought he was a good player, but that was the extent of it.
anyway, the keynote was fascinating. it was more interview than keynote, where the SAP CEO Bill McDermott asked them each pretty interesting questions and (obviously) tried to relate their success on the court in the respective sports to the corporate world.
normally keynotes I'm out in 5 minutes, but I stuck around for this entire interview.
Kobe was pretty funny (unintentionally sometimes) Jeter as you'd expect more straight laced and serious.
one crappy picture, I was in the back.
the moral of the story is check the agenda beforehand (how did I not know this was going to happen?) and even if you're up til the bars close drinking, sometimes forcing yourself to get up and get over to the convention center pays off.
