The greatest intro blog ever written, my own (check it out), went up on the site this afternoon and I was excited for everyone at Branded to get a good idea of what I’m all about. And low and behold Kevin Messina was the first man to take notice. A great follow on twitter by the way. Check him out at @kmess22.
It turns out that my new boss and colleague wasn’t a big fan. Kevin was unimpressed with my physique and how I related to being a blogger. I said the fact that I was fat made me a perfect fit to be a blogger. I stand by that. But since Kevin is one of those ‘I work out, drink protein and eat my eggs raw’ type of guys he needed to remind everyone that not all bloggers are overweight…
…as if his arm flex in his Yankees dry-fit in his twitter pic wasn’t a good enough reminder.
But that wasn’t his real gripe with me, so he says.
Branded Sports “Now onto your worst quality. The Red Sox. I mean there’s not much more to say. I hate you, you hate me, we scream and yell you pahk the cah in hahvahd yahd. Yeah.. I know the Sox are on fire but you just wait until October baby!!”
First off, the Sox aren’t on fire, they’re just that good and have been all year.
What I think is really going on is Kevin’s Yankees are sliding and are currently closer to the second wild card spot than the AL East lead. He is getting antsy and a little nervous that his big bad Yankee team isn’t as good as he originally thought. The prospect of having Severino’s soft ass stepping onto the mound in a one game playoff is less and less appealing with every shelling their “ace” receives.
Kevin is on edge, for good reason, and he’s taking it out on the new guy.
Me, on the other hand, am happy as a clam. I’m just here for some good ole’ fun and jokes and maybe to talk about some sports every now and then.
I couldn’t be more elated to be a part of the Branded team and, as much as Kevin may always hate me, I think we could be friends someday.
That’s it for me. I have to go get Kevin his coffee now.
