The local newspaper declared it a “hit” with not only the fans, but the opposing team. “The jersey is really cool,” remarked one player from the Wisconsin Woodchucks. So cool. Read More

Looks like LinkedIn cofounder Reid Hoffman is just using any excuse to get shitfaced. In honor of the company’s tenth birthday, he created “Cinco de LinkedIn,” a real company event celebrated by its 3,700 employees.
