This has to be kind of like being told you’re not going to be paid buckets of money to be kicked in the groin repeatedly, or being paid a million dollars to spend a 162 game season confined at Guantanamo Bay, or maybe even showered with gold but you have to listen to The O’Reilly Factor for 8 months straight.
