Print paper copies of the article and trade them for discounted tattoos?

Thanks for the feedback, Ibuck. I may have some bitter co-workers, but I honestly couldn't be happier. I have to work long hours (14-16 hr shifts) and 2 weekends per month, but the work-life balance is awesome because it translates to 180 days off/year without even using PTO. By contrast, my last employer had me traveling out of state 40 weeks/year, which is what brought me here in the first place.

Lot of good stuff in this article, but I have to say my favorite part was this:

How bad would Mark Titus beat you in a game of 1-on-1? - Bucknut1994

JL: “I think Titus is really washed up, and I don't think it would be very close. In his prime, I bet it would be a little bit of a closer game, but I still would beat him. But right now, I mean, I was with him in Minneapolis at the Final Four, and he just doesn't stand a chance.”

It literally made me L out L, which was weird because I'm at work on a holiday weekend and the majority of my co-workers are bitter and joyless about being at work on a holiday weekend and no less than 3 of them have asked my why in the hell I'm so happy to be here on a holiday thanks for that, I guess.

It’s been a very frustrating start, to say the least. They practically need a winning streak just to match the abysmal 3-18 start from last year, but I’m still hopeful.

They’ve had a month’s worth of 1-run losses in the past week which has been really ugly, but those games are essentially coin flips. Early injuries (Wood, Gennett, Senzel- even though he isn’t with the big club anyway) doing them no favors. I just hope they don’t completely bury themselves in April. Need to turn it around ASAP if they want to keep any remaining momentum gained during the offseason.

From the main page, I involuntarily read the title "The Power of Craft" in Huey Lewis's voice (because of my inherent 80s-tasticness) and thought to myself "this must be a Ginter". After hovering the mouse over the article before clicking, I noticed the "they can go b-b-back in time" and my suspicions were immediately proven correct*. 

*In case any of this is unclear, it's awesome to read a Ginter article because he references all the same pop culture nostalgia that I hold dear!

Yanks sent a pitching prospect, Reiver Sanmartin, in the deal as well. Kid has potential to be more than just a throw-in. I like this sudden bout of competence from the Reds FO. It’s weird though. Lol
