I applied to be the general manager for the cubs in the early 2000s. I cited turning an expansion fantasy baseball team into a playoff team in 3 years.
Still convinced I would have done a better job.

How much do you need? The old man buys old barns and factories to strip the wood out of them for flooring. Then has it milled in Guatemala and shipped back in prefabricated flooring.
He usually only sells containers at a time but he has a warehouse full of loose ends....

I am assuming this is directed toward our diehard students? I don't get worked up about when/why people leave the stadium early but the number of students that were gone by halftime was very surprising.
I would guesstimate that a solid 60-70% of the student section was empty by halftime. Bunc...

Tbe Maya calendar used lunar cycles as it's basis and is more accurate than the Gregorian. We had to add the leap year to correct our calendar.
So long story short, the Maya calendar doesn't have to account for leap years because it is inherently more accurate. And we will all be dying in Decem...

Another MAJOR issue is that he likely promotes people regardless of skill or qualification because it lines his pockets in the greatest way. So he is not only profiting from his salary, kickbacks from workers but he is likely harming the company in the process.
To me that is three strikes.

Basically, this guy is scum. As you stated he has been canned before for the same racket. If not against the law it is at the very least highly unethical. He is abusing his position of power that is given to him by the company and profiting from it personally. If the company was receiving the ki...
