Cincinnati.com: Photos: Mallory as ‘Undercover Boss’

I watched the show last night and came away with a few things:

  1. Mark Mallory in disguise pretty much looks like Mark Mallory.  It’s his distinctive faces and glasses.  Occasionally he’d slip and speak to clearly.
  2. City Workers are definitely under-appreciated for the work they do.  Who knew that there was only ONE person that picks up all the dead animals in the city.
  3. The Undercover Boss ending where the boss helps his employees doesn’t quite feel right for public employees.  It just seemed a little off when the Mayor is giving gifts donated by corporations to the specific employees.  
  4. Mark Mallory is an excellent spokesperson for the city.  You can tell his love and passion for the city and its people.

Overall, it was entertaining and a good thing for the nation to see a mayor who cares about the city and its employees.

You can watch the episode at CBS.com.

AARP Card

I’m turning 41 this month so to AARP this must mean “fresh meat”!

AARPCard.jpgSeeing this, I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.  I’m sure AARP is a fine organization, but this is the last card I’m thinking about carrying around right now.

ESPN.com: Jets cut Damien Woody, Kris Jenkins

ESPN.com: Jets cut Damien Woody, Kris Jenkins

Also cut was Vernon Gholston the sixth overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft from Ohio State.

In three years, Gholston played in 45 games, including five starts, producing only 32 total tackles. He made $21 million in guarantees from his rookie contract, which breaks down to $636,000 per tackle.

Gholston had a $9 million escalator clause in his contract for one sack or forced fumble or fumble recovery, but never got it.

The guy is a physical specimen, but couldn’t get just one sack to make 9 million more dollars.
