Last week, CareerBuilder.com released its survey of the most common workplace productivity killers. Three of the top four were cell phones, the internet, and social media. In Wednesday night’s game against the Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox third baseman Pablo “Kung Fu Panda” Sandoval hit all three of those.
During a mid-game trip to the bathroom, Panda grabbed his cell phone and “liked” a few pictures of a woman on Instagram.
A sports blogger caught the in-game “like” and exposed Panda on Twitter. Panda later admitted his faux-pas (although, he claims that he meant to like other photos — bruh!). Either way, cell phone use within 30 minutes before game time is against Major League Baseball’s policy. So, Panda rode the pine last night, serving a one-game suspension.
I could on with this story, but, I’ll defer to the PTI guys, Michael Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser, and this amusing exchange.
