    You think he was just sweeping floors? He was the janitor. Empty the trash cans, vacuum and mop the floors, clean and scrub all toilets, etc. They were paying him, it was a job.

    I saw him in there twice in the evening, both times when the blinds were open because he was cleaning them. Both times he was wearing those big blue rubber gloves. :lol:

    If he is working to clean up perhaps it is mostly a hobby. I really don't see him blowing all that money he made. Of course I have no inside information and could be totally incorrect.

        I think some of these people think we're serious about Zook being a janitor.

            Good. If you're not on board with it, Swamp Gas is accepting applications. I'm sure they love themselves some Ron Zook over there. You can go fawn with them.

              I think Johnny sold his first bagel company to Einstein's so he's probably loaded. Zooker, I have no idea.

              4 20 game winners in a single season. That will never happen again. Palmer, Cueller, McNally and Dobson.

                  When I was in high school I worked at a car wash. Palmer would come through occasionally. He was always nice to folks.

                  Great rotation. That was a special season.

                  Zook is what it is. I think he wanted to succeed but it's like hoping you wake up in time to get to the toilet before you piss in your jammies. Loser mentality.

                  1969 I caught a home run from Boog Powell over the right field fence at the old Municipal Stadium in WPB. That Orioles team was loaded. Spent many an afternoon at that ballpark and got to know many of the Atlanta Braves who were our home team. Met nearly all of them including Hank and Tommy Aaron but actually got to know Rico Carty the best. He always gave us the broken bats after games and treated us to whatever we wanted at the concession stand.

                  Those were good times.

                    Zooker owns (or owned) part of the bank, Also owns part of Eaton's beach restaurant on Lake Weir near Weirsdale, And they're opening a new place near Venetian Gardens in Leesburg. I wish I had his Lake Weir home, It's about 3/4 mile from mine but his is lake front.

                        Zook will end up where McCarthy gets a job. Mike loves him some Zooker. As a Packer fan I been saying zook should have been fired years ago.

                        That’s all just corporate lingo to make people feel better. The guy was knee deep in garbage, reeked of Windex and spent hours each night disinfecting those pens attached to the counter with a chain.

                        He gave it his all here and had some really good wins, so I’ll give him that. But he and his approach had an expiration date the moment he began and we were fortunate to make a move before he took us completely off the rails.

                        I’d have no problem with him doing some recruiting for us but that’s about it. And if he is coming back, and has access to those lollipops they give out at the bank, I’ll take a red.

                          I gotta real problem having to sign a credit card authorization when the guy in front of me was sneezing up a storm. I can buy $200.00 of organic chips at Whole Foods and never touch a pen dipped in mucus.
