It's Tuesday here in McDonough and the warmer temperatures the last couple of days have gone a long way toward raising the spirits of many here in the office. Not only does it mean there can be many more sockless days, but it also signifies the start of the baseball season - and more importantly the San Francisco Giants defense of their 2010 World Series Championship.
First off, every day is a good day to be a Hoya - but, there have been a lot of great days to be a Hoya lately. Our women's team is on a six-game win streak while our men's team is on a seven-game win streak. If you had a chance to catch our women's game, you saw a performance by a team who that night could simply be called "Sugar and the Hilltop Gang" ... when you listen to the Sugarhill Gang as often as our office does, these things just come to you.
It's a Monday in the office and while the women are out for lunch - Barbara Barnes is no doubt still reveling in her Green Bay Packers winning the Super Bowl last night - a few of the guys here are around the television watching the 1997 Major League Baseball Home Run Hitting Contest. Ryan Sakamoto was in his cube doing some work, but when he heard that former Baltimore Oriole Brady Anderson was up to bat, that stopped pretty quickly.
