Also thought it would be Glengarry Glen Ross. Great, great movie.

I could have went with The Goods as well. Figured our situation is more Tommy Boy-centric though. New guy comes in, has to scramble to save the company, then when all looks lost he pulls a big fish into the boat and things get better.

If my original post didn't make you laugh, this might. The Panthers website is broadcasting the App State Pro Day today. Live at 12:30. Over at 12:32.

I've never even seen Glengarry Glen Ross, just that scene. Tommy Boy is a classic though.

I was expecting a Glengarry Glen Ross reference.

I love me some Tommy Boy. But, too call it one of the best sales movies is laughable.

Glengarry Glen Ross is definitely the best. Was actually used in one of my MBA courses to demonstrate specific topics.

I think SCP has watched one Bob Ross episode too many.

Ill have to admit, the situation the team I love is in right now has me wanting to chop down some pretty little trees. The Hurney incompetence has me a lot more fired up than I would normally be.

I'd watch Biodome 2 before I'd ever watch Glengarry again.

Gettleman: Hey, what's your name?
Panthro: Helen.
Gettleman: That's nice, you look like a Helen. Helen, we're both in sales. Let me tell you why I suck as a GM. Let's say I go into a free agents office, let's say he's even remotely interested in playing for the Panthers in a half empty stadium filled with khakis and sweater vests and opposing fans. Well then I get all excited. I'm like Jojo the idiot circus boy with a pretty new pet. Now the pet is my possible RG or DT solution. Hello there pretty little pet, I love you. And then I stoke it, and I pet it, and I massage it. Hehe I love it, I love my little naughty pet. You're naughty! And then I take my naughty pet and I go...phaaaaaaap here is a one year deal for less money than anybody else is offering because Mary Hurney f*cking sucked and JR perpetuated it! Uuuuuuh! I killed it! I killed my free agent signing!!!!!!! And that's when I blow it. That's when people like us have gotta forge ahead, Helen. Am I right?



God, you're sick. Tell ya what, I'll go turn the fryers back on and throw on some defensive tackles for you.

People wear sweater vests in North Carolina? And khakis by choice?

I can get a good look at a QB by sticking my head up Cam's ass, but I'd rather take Jimmy Clausen's word for it.
