If you're at the office today, I offer my condolences.
What could possibly be worse than working in between Christmas and New Year's Eve? Think about it: Earlier this week, you probably stuffed your face with delicious food and drank yourself into a merry state. You got to spend time with people you love. And now, you're bloated, hungover and depressed at the office. Loved ones have been replaced by the guy from IT with the sweaty palms. It's a raw deal.
Making matters worse is that New Year's Eve is right around the corner, meaning that while you wait to soak your liver in liquor, the clock seems soaked in molasses, ticking ever-so-slowly towards the holiday.
But fret not, cube monkey. Week 17 of the NFL is right around the corner, and it's the very best Sunday of games all year. Thirteen of the 16 games have playoff or seeding implications, meaning the entertainment value with be through the roof.
So put down that TPS report and tell the guy from IT with the sweaty palms that you aren't interested in hearing how much eggnog he drank this week, and feast your eyes on the Friday clock-watcher's guide to NFL Week 17.
