Bye Bye Herm and Lack of posting!
The Jets traded their coach for a 4th round draft pick. A 4th round draft pick. Is losing Herman Edwards a loss? Yes, it is. However, I think it is more of a loss because there is no one worthwhile to replace him with than I do because he was some kind of fantastic coach. He was a very positive motivational guy, but when it came to in game management, especially clock management he absolutely sucked. There were so many times that the Jets would blow an opportunity because they couldn’t get a play in from the sideline. It reeks of poor decision making skills. It routinely got to the point that I would scream at the television. Now, in the interest of full disclosure, I like yelling at the TV, but only when something good happens. I scream like a madman because for some reason my screaming is helping them win. When they screw up my screaming penetrates the television, heads into space by satellite, shoots down from the satellite into the camera and shoots Herm while the guy holding the parabolic microphone has his head explode from the sheer force of my wrath. Bye Bye Herm! We hardly knew ya.
Sorry for not posting more regularly this week, but I have been away at a sales conference and have spent a couple of days catching up. I work with a great team of people at my job. All are bright, energetic and have passion for the company. It is hard not to have passion for the company I work for. We do some pretty amazing things. I gave a fantastic presentation and it scored big across the board. We work with some of the top companies in the world and really have become the darling of our space. I had a small technical problem during my presentation and later in the evening I kind of gave an impromptu lecture about what I was going to cover and how it related to our business model. I briefly talked about how my company can affect the global marketplace and how free trade is good. I am pretty passionate about it and apparently the CEO of my company overheard me. The last night of the conference he singled me out at dinner and had me give the same mini lecture. It was very cool and was a big hit. The end result of the sales conference and the emotionally draining visit from No Mom of Consequence is sheer exhaustion. I have my first link post written. It will be on the site soon.
