Hump Day Thoughts on Sports – 7/18/12


by Steve Farace

Loyalty – that’s a strong word isn’t it? It can be meant to describe many things in life. Maybe you are referring to your loyal pooch, Hammer. Maybe you are referring to your loyal and devoted husband or wife. What about being loyal to your job? Have you guys read the story about Marissa Mayer? She had worked with Google since 1999 – in fact she was their 20th employee. She has been working there for 13 years and it was just announced that she was leaving Google to become the new CEO of Yahoo! Now, Yahoo used to be one of Google’s main competitors, but is struggling, so I guess Mayer is looking to revive them. It makes you think, though, which side of the fence was the lack of loyalty? Google or Mayer? Holy Johnny Damon, Batman! Let’s get to it:

Hump Day Thoughts on Sports – 6/13/12


By Steve Farace

So, I’m having a discussion with someone today that has worked at both Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts. We were talking about the difference in the customer base and according to her, there is a rather large gap in customers of each company. She told me that Starbucks customers are more stuck up (I think we all knew that part) and that they are quicker to get irate if their coffee is not made perfectly so. Dunkin customers (again, according to a former employee of both) will still get upset when their coffee isn’t made perfectly, but they are more the “don’t worry it’s not a big deal” kind of customer as opposed to Starbucks “can you just have someone else make my drink” customer. I thought it was interesting – I’m a Dunkin man myself…how about you?

Coaches Corner – 5/7/12


By Yankee Todd

For one day, all is right in the world of basketball.

The Knicks defeated the Heat in a playoff game.

The Knicks ended a horrible drought of consecutive losses in playoff games.

NL Rookie of the Year Preview


by Aaron Rife

Last year a closer won the Jackie Robinson Award (yeah, that’s what the ROY award is called; I bet you didn’t realize that) for the first time in NL history. Craig Kimbrel took home the award after posting a monster stat line: 4-3, 47 Saves, 2.10ERA, 1.08WHIP, and an amazing 127 Ks in only 77 innings. He now holds the record for most saves by a rookie; breaking Neftali Feliz’s 1-year old record of 40. That’s an impressive rookie season.
