Afternoon Timekiller

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NN3laPfNDJo Need to waste twenty minutes? How about four hours? Can I interest you in snap-to-snap edits of multiple 2010 games? There’s a YouTube channel for that. Don’t pretend like you don’t want to relive Gregg Robinson‘s Greatest Hits. Afternoon work ethic is overrated, anyway.
