Shortly after my posting last week about trying to keep a clean sheet (http://www.1640thechamp.com/almost-great-scoring/), I was sent a memo from the head-honcho at A.G.S.
To: All Almost Great Employees;
As a new season begins here for Almost Great Scoring, I cannot wait for the new lows we will set. I am absolutely confident in my staff’s ability to completely screw up every little task we are given. From Kyle’s inability to pronounce players names, Trey’s unmatched determination to play the wrong song at the wrong time, Zos’ inability to see if the pitch was a ball or strike from his obstructed-view seat, or my unwillingness to hit “send stats” when necessary, I know we are destined for the truly greatest lows of Almost Great Scoring’s two-year existence.
Any man who says he totally understands what we do is a fool. Because they are un-understandable. There’s a wishing fountain at the mall. And I threw a coin in for every one in the world who thinks they understand what we do. I wished for them to understand how difficult our task really is. I also wished for a plasma TV….. but that’s another topic for another day. I also wished for Trey to gain courage. I wished for Kyle a heart, and for Zos a brain. “Jeff, how can you appreciate your staff so much when they’re obviously so inept?” You mean, how can I be so illogical and unpredictable? Well, maybe I learned something from my staff after all.
So, for those who say “this is stupid”……You don’t even know what stupid is. It’s about to get all stupid up in here! Enjoy the season, and don’t count our mistakes, that’s our job to screw up so you don’t have to!

…And then he wrote on what was going to be a clean sheet? The quest continues I guess.
