Get it Together, Doug

C’mon Doug. I mean, what are you doing? How can you not see a man doing a remote right in front of you? I mean, you walked by him like ten times. Do you know who Ken Rosenthal is? He’s a big deal. And I’m sure he’s on like two hours of sleep, so it’s in your best interest to get out of his damn way. Ugh. Just … try and pay more attention OK?

Look, I know you’re still rattled from when Walt Jocketty yelled at you today. But that was hours ago, and you need to put it behind you. Remember, I’m only doing this as a favor because you’re married to my sister. I know you’re having trouble finding work, and I’m trying to help you out here. Getting another media pass to the Winter Meetings wasn’t easy. But you need to stay out of the way, like we talked about. If you do a good job, I can try and recommend you to my boss when something opens up, but now your face is on TV looking like a dope. You just better hope that some dumb blogger doesn’t find it and make some shitty jokes about you.

OK, OK. Calm down. It’s fine. Let’s go grab a drink at the bar. I need to find Jon Heyman anyway. If we see him, though, remember — let me do the talking. Gammons already thinks you have some sort of brain damage or something.
