It’s the weekend! While all you 95ers were waking up early all week and texting and driving and rockin’ out and singing Call Me Maybe on your daily commutes, the I-95 crew was tweeting and blogging and reading and drinking coffee! Don’t worry, we do work too...sometimes...promise. You don’t believe us? We came up with this idea while we were working, ha!
Since launching I-95 SportsBiz last month, we’ve learned that we tweet a lot and drink too much coffee...and we’re proud of it! We’ve also learned that each week we have some sports stuff that we wanted to share, but didn’t have the chance in our weekly columns. So, we’re starting a new weekendly (possibly not a word, but we’ve already decided we’re sticking with it) post to share what we think are must reads from the work week!
With no further adieu, (insert pounding-your-hands-on-a-desk drumroll here) Here’s some quick hits to get you through the weekend! Enjoy!
