The New Elchapo

Usually when Shannon is on the misery of his New York Giants is on full display. I missed that today. However, the Sinalo Cartel having a Union that was straight comedy! Can you write a book of everything you say during the elavator music break, I think the entire listening audience wants to hear that.

Thanks for the laughs, it’s much appreciated!
