Do you Job Search like Bill Buckner?



Are you Bill Buckner?




Ok…I admit it. I am a huge baseball guy. You may even call me a baseball geek. It’s early February and I’m already wondering how close we are to having pitchers and catchers report to MLB training camp. (Seven days or so in case you are wondering).

So Happy Holidays to everyone.
