Pac-12 is supposed to have a football schedule announcement at ~ 1 PM. Last minute wrangling over timing of some of the rivalry games and even whether it will start the last weekend of Sept. or the first weekend of October appears to be going on at the highest levels. Not that anything actually hinges on any of this!
My friend is a software engineer at a tech company. Her manager asked if she'd be interested in joining another team, saying, "It would be good for you to get some exposure to what they work on."
She isn't sure if her manager really thinks this would be good for her career development, or if her manager just wants to get rid of her.
Any thoughts on what she should do? Should she ask her manager about her performance on her current team? Should she just join the other team?
Reminder: DBD Zoom tonight at 6:30 Pacific!!!!! Let me know if you need the info. Cugel, just join us on your phone!!!

Watched Cal's 2007 game against Oregon on Pac-12 networks last night. Marcus Ezeff with the jarring hit causing the fumble at the goal line. Ah, those were the days and that was probably the apogee of Cal football in modern history. Next week was the horrific loss to Oregon State that doomed Cal's hope of being No. 1 in the polls. The Riley game.
This week in pop culture literacy: my wife’s birthday was earlier this week and she wanted to have a family film night so we ended up watching Footloose because she was the only one who had seen it. My older daughter couldn’t quite get over the fact that Lori Singer was 27 and John Lithgow 39 when it was filmed. Apparently that was almost too much disbelief to willingly suspend.
