BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Holy ****.... I work in logistics, specifically in pallet tracking software management.... so that has an extra level of humor for me.

I now have a story for any conference, meeting, interview, or sales proposal that can NEVER be beaten.

Well, there's nothing in the CBA that prevents trading for beer.

That is Leon from the Budwieser commercials. The I aint playing unless someone is paying ones. Kind of ironic when you think about it.

He's absolute crap. He has one pitch, a fastball, and it tops out around 83 mph. I did meet him at a game though. Nice guy.

I'm sure Boston would consider a sixer of Beast for Zhamnov a steal at this point.

A few years ago in the WHL a player was once traded for a 20 year old bus. I am sure one of you Western Cdn boys can dig out the story.

I still love Malefic's post where a player was traded for a used bus...

But the 60 cases of Budweiser is pretty dang funny. Great find!

There was a Finnish team or Swedish team a few years back that traded a player for his weight in shrimp.

My guess is a team would have to pony up a whole brewery to get Ovechkin

What kind of pallet is that? Because a regular sized pallet, 60 cases is nothing.

I bet the Panthers wish they could redo the Rhett Warrener trade to Buffalo for a pallete of Genessee Cream Ale instead of the pylon formerly known as Mike Wilson.

Columbus got Derron Quint for $1cnd from NJ. Not sure they were even able to spend that dollar anywhere in Jersey.
