    I struggled with it when I moved back here. The people I worked with had a problem being held responsible for their positions. They apparently thought I was too rough with them.

    I replied by smiling broadly when I fired them.

    I get the bit but I honestly don't understand where this comes from. You would think the entire state is filled with morning news anchors and that just hasn't been my experience (and I've lived here my whole life).

    At least firing people isn't passive.

    I did it as passively as I could. Then talked **** about them for a week.

    I think it's a Jesse Ventura reference.

    I can only imagine some of the internet comments about him right now.

    I am going to be glass half full and hope it is just a normal back spasm triggered by an erratic week of playing and then three quick games in cold weather and that it is nothing than a minor inconvenience for a day or two.

    This team does seem to have something they have not have had in a few years. Not talent necessarily, but able to do more with what they have. And more determination to stay in the game when things go wrong.

    I've lived here for most of my life too, and I see it everywhere. Even my neighbors, we all get together for a cook-out or a party, and everyone are such close friends. You see them one on one and they are slagging someone over some minor issue.

    Quit being such a coward, and just tell me your issues with me. I'll more often than not comply.

    Maybe they like your cooking too much to make an issue of anything right then.

    I heard somewhere that he makes $23 million a year. If true, this would have some bearing on back spasms.
