Whatever you do, please don't ask "What do you do in the offseason?" or "How was your time off while the team was gone?"

Either of hose two questions will irritate anyone who works front office in sports. It's my absolute least favorite question to answer. Do you think promotions just happen? Do you think outfield signs just appear?  Tickets sell themselves? We have to plan every little bit of the game, aside from the actual play. We work in the offseason. Either compiling proof that all of the necessary and sponsored events happened or finding someone to sponsor something similar next year.

We don't get days off because the team does. We don't have all of this leisure time. It's a labor of love. It's a work intensive labor of love.
