When I say “small,” I don’t mean insignificant. Not by any means. Quite the opposite, actually. And when I say “Giant fan,” I don’t mean of us. No, no, no. I simply mean that a fan of the Baseball team from San Francisco, ARPsmith from ARPSmith’s Sportscard Obsession, sent over some smaller sized items in [...]
I actually have a little time to write up a post tonight! Before the ghost of Community Break Present sweeps us off on our journey tomorrow, the ghost of Community Break Past is here. This ghost isn’t going to tell us what things would be like if gimmicks and SPs never existed. He’s not smart [...]
Finally, the answer to the question that’s been burning a whole in your unrelenting hearts is here.
When you heard the news that Ryan Dempster was traded to the Braves Dodgers Yankees??? Rangers, I’m sure the first thing that popped into your head was “What’s this going to mean for Jon’s Ryan Dempster collection? Doesn’t [...]

So, how did you all do in your office cubicle mini-golf tournament?
What’s that? You mean you guys didn’t have an in-the-office putt-putt course set up for Employee Appreciation Day a couple Friday’s ago? What?? You haven’t heard of Employee Appreciation Day?
Truthfully, neither had I. I’ve been with that company for 7 years now, [...]
