My CNBC colleague, Darren Rovell, who writes the always-entertaining Sports Biz blog on CNBC.com, directed me to a Murray Chass piece that appears in the Sports section of the New York Times. It features an interview with Warren Buffett about one of his favorite subjects: baseball.
Included are Buffett's prediction that the Yankee's Alex Rodriguez will eventually top Barry Bonds' newly created career home-run record ("I’m going to be 77 in a few weeks, and I hope I’m here when he breaks it.") Buffett talks about meeting A-Rod after the slugger asked if he could "come in and talk." "We hit it off very well," says Buffett, who is a long-time fan and part-owner of a minor-league team in Omaha.
