A lot of you are closet pro football fans. Sure, sure. Some of you complain about the amount of sports comparisons I draw when talking about HR and Talent. But then again. a lot of you watched the NFL on Sunday, which featured Ray Lewis in his last game in Baltimore (he's retiring after the upcoming loss to the Patriots in the next round of the playoffs)
Which brings me to the point of the post. If I could talk like Ray Lewis does at work, I'd have the following vocabulary:
get some @@@@#!
What would you add? What Ray Lewis smack talk would you like to shout in your HR role? "Get some <insert noun>" is probably my choice. "All day" is a nice runner up if you're not into the descriptive noun thing. Hit me in the comments with yours.
Is anyone else getting tired of seeing the pre-game rituals of Ray Lewis every single week? Anyone else tired of the dance? Here's a video taste below (email subscribers click through for video):
For my money, the perfect linebacker is, was, and always will be Terry Tate - office linebacker (click through for video, some NSFW pronouns). Any chance these workplace commercial spots get remade with a retired Ray Lewis starring in them? That would actually freshen up the Ray Lewis routine nicely in my eyes...
