Snakebytes 9/9: I Suck At My Job

Along with the Front Office of the Diamondbacks, I failed once again.

First An Apology

No, this is not for Diamondhacks. You’re still wrong brother. :P But glad we can have these lively discussions.

This apology is to everyone on the AzSnakepit staff and it’s readers. There have been 4 times this season I have failed to open my browser to the Googliewebs and do a search on the Arizona Diamondbacks for news of the past 24 hours. Yes, I know this has been highly impactful to all of you and will probably eliminate me from getting this job. The fact I didn’t apply is not germane.

The reasons for my lapse in content pleonasm (yes it’s a word, look it up) are vast and intriguing. However since this is not a forum for story telling, I’ll just let your imaginations run wild as to why this 37 year old, married, white male with no kids would be unavailable between the hours of 8 and 10 am on holidays. Have fun with that.

Anyway, onward toward the news!
