Today’s music selection is Howlin’ For You by The Black Keys.
Everybody wants something today. Right?
Today is a national holiday for those of us who follow this great sport Trade Deadline Day. Wouldn’t you know it, I have meetings clogging up my late morning, afternoon, and a softball game this evening. Why, why, why won’t people take notice and allow me to just sit and wait for all the deals to be done? Rest assured that if there is any major transaction or even minor, the Rat Pack crew of myself, Dave or Josh will give you the details at some point today. As well as our main site Too Many Men On The Site.
If however you take the day off from work or school and need an excuse, please see me as I’ll give you what you need. Trust me, you’re in good hands. This coming from a guy whose Dad wrote a note in sixth grade telling my teacher that Frank was absent yesterday so I could take him to the Cubs home opener. Yea, my Dad was a pretty cool guy.
