I was worried that Michael Pineda would get in trouble for getting caught with gunk on his hand the other night. Apparently, I don’t know shit about baseball because this happens all the time and players don’t really consider it cheating.
The worst part is: this isn’t changing anytime soon.
Want to spend more time with your family? Maybe you’d like to take a vacation and show Junior the Baseball Hall of Fame? Move to France, you hippie! I’m sure your kids will love the Baguette Hall of Fame! You’ll stop working when you’re dead! It’s the American way!
This is a little depressing but interesting if you consider how these things are handled in other countries. It seems it would make sense that the average hours we put in every week at work would lessen as productivity has increased thanks to advancements in technology. Definitely not the case even though Americans have been predicting as much for the last 100 years or so.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to get back to work.
