“I’m like okay and then Pedroia walks by, flexes and then says ‘Hey Murph check out these guns, man.’ The guy has the biceps of a six-year-old, he has no business wearing a shirt with cut-off sleeves and I’m getting blinded by the shine from the head of a college freshman that’s going bald; then he just proceeded to go out and make every play.” —Did You Hear the Story About Pedroia?

I’m at Brad Inman’s Real Estate Connect conference in San Francisco this week, my third year in a row at this event. Always a good time. Best part of this year’s conference, though, was the keynote this morning by GapingVoid‘s Hugh MacLeod. Hugh told me it’s the first keynote he’s done, which I find nearly impossible to believe. Memo to conference organizers: hire this man.
