Ten Stray Thoughts On A Friday

New York Yankees v Toronto Blue JaysFor many, Friday represents the end of a long work week that’s filled with heavy doses of drudging, sludging and other words that don’t actually exist but rhyme with “udging” and connote menial and tedious tasks that are ultimately distasteful.
