Good morning, everyone! As I write this, it is 6:30am CST and I am getting ready to head to the office shortly as we begin our summer hours. That translates to four 10-hour days instead of five 8-hour days, leaving Fridays open for a nice, long weekend.
Summer hours will also, hopefully, mean that I will start posting in the mornings instead of late at night! Oh, I know, this is 2014 and the Internet being what it is means that "time" doesn't really matter much, but I know some folks like to check things out in the morning and it will be nice to have fresh content for you that wasn't from the night before. Yeah, I'm weird like that.
Since we had a GREAT pack break yesterday, let's see if we can score some hits this morning.

Holy Cannoli! For those that don't know, I post these packs as I open them and all comments are made "live." I never would have guessed that we would actually pull ANOTHER relic, let alone that Bo Rosny would would walk away with FOUR hits in one pack! I don't have any proof, but I bet that is a record for any single Tribecards giveaway pack. That is awesome! Congratulations, Bo. I also have to tip my hat to the other managers who grabbed players during this break as well, seeing as how the odds were certainly not in your favor here! I mean, heck, Rosny took 1/3 of the cards and another 1/3 were free agents. Just, wow!
