I was in this very meeting with our manager trying to motivate us with all manner of sports related inspiration.”It’s the ninth inning, people, and the bases are loaded with sales! It’s fourth and inches! They’re on the ropes! Time for a slam dunk!”
Not being a sports guy, I didn’t find it particularly moving, but it did make for a good cartoon.
