Watching ESPN this morning, I saw Rays manager Joe Maddon being interviewed about the distractions that come along with going to the World Series, stuff like a barrage phone messages and texts and ticket requests. He was smiling, not complaining.
Amid all this, he says, "A lotta folks back at the pad."
I love it. To translate for those of you unfamiliar with Beat-era hipster slang, that means: A lot of people are staying at my house."
"Back at the pad." Beautiful. Keep 'em coming, Joe.
