Hey Jonesy, I'm paying your salary

    Got a thing in the mail today from Esquire, offering me a special research rate of $5.98 for a year's worth of the magazine.
    So dammit, I expect to get my money's worth... That's U.S. dollars, too, pal... none of this loonie-toonie shtuff....

    I'd pay double if they got rid of Klosterman and Junod.

    $5.98 for a year?! You ain't paying Jones' salary, you're stealing from him.

    Frank, I think Junod is the one thing we vehemently disagree about on this board. Which is about 17 fewer things than I vehemently disagree with most about on here. (what a terrible sentence. I apologize)

    It's also $10.98 for 2 years... is that like second prize is two weeks in Philadelphia?

    Yeah, you said I was dead to you. What, are you holding a seance now?

    Ha. There are few people ACTUALLY dead to me. I just vehemently disagree with you. However, that's the joy of writing...so subjective. I mean, shit. My boss actually thinks I don't suck.

    I'd kind of like to be a poltergeist.

    Hmmm...that movie freaked me out. So I can't say I'd be a big fan of that.

    But if that's what you want, then go for it!

    The insert comes with jokes and tips...

    "A chicken and an egg are laying in bed. The chicken is smoking a cigarette with a very satisfying smile on his face. The egg is frowning and looking frustrated..
    The egg says, "Guess we answered that question."

    "One night, a man rolls over in bed, giving his wife a big grin. She says, 'Not tonight, honey. I have a gynecologists appointment tomorrow. I want to stay fresh and clean. The man, feeling rejected, rolls over and tries to go to sleep. A few minutes later, he rolls over again and asks his wife, 'Do you have a dentist's appointment tomorrow?'"

    Quit your bitching, I'm paying $7.99 per year!

    But if Jones buys me a beer at one of the SportsJournalists.com outings, I'll not file a lawsuit against Esquire.
