So last time we met here was the week of the whole Emily Austen debacle where the PC police dragged her across the coals just because she made racialy disparaging comments against Mexicans, Asians, and Jews. Fortunately for her, my ombudsman column really put the fire out on that one before things got out of hand. Took the last week off as I was moving up to NYC since I had to choose between affording toilet paper and internet for the week and we stopped in Cincy for some Skyline on the drive up- so obvously had to go with wet wipes over wifi. But now we’re back, the mailpail has piled up so its time to take some questions:
Hey PFT got a question, and for the female readers sup?Once everyone makes the big move to the New York office are things going to be a little bit too cozy? figure you might want to lead by example and teach them about true workplace GRIT. Here is some workplace ideas to really set the tone.1. Instead of an office chair sit on a bench with 135 on the bar at all times. (anything more or less is showboating, or humiliating)2 Once a day play Mike Alstott highlights to show the advantage of the deceptively fast north south running style.3 When everyone brings in some Starbucks to drink make sure to show them that you only drink a pot of coffee (black) or lemon lime Gatorade since you never know when someone might challenge you in a 40.4 Set your desk 1 inch below everyone else in the office. Pad Level is everything.Hope this helps.
Hey, I was recently informed by my daughter and her husband that I’m going to be a grandfather. They then asked me what I wanted to be called by my first grandchild. In my opinion the choice is obvious: tombrady. My daughter is pretty cool with it. My wife on the other hand thinks I’m pathetic. I really respect your opinion. Any interest in weighing in.Thanks, Kevin.
Ombudsman,I was confused earlier this week when I saw ads for the Bill Simmons HBO show on barstool. I figured this was a dangerous game of chicken between two heavy weights.
Now after hearing (was never going to watch it) that Ben affleck went all “Artie Lange on the Joe Buck HBO show” on the bill Simmons HBO show, and seeing the new promos for pmt, it’s clear that barstool won the game.I am still confused though. Was this a stroke of strategic genius by barstool? Or is it just a case of reckless abandon on daves ‘s part?Also, does this mean Ben affleck will stab himself next year?
Sincerely,Confused in Minnesota
