Letitia Wright Is Pitching Wakandan Technology to Tom Holland: “Tell Your People to Call My People”

We all knew Princess Shuri was a genius inventor, but it turns out she’s also a hell of an entrepreneur.

As a former Girl Scout who learned her salesmanship from the most ruthless marketing machine in the Western world, I had to shout out this glorious Twitter exchange. Always be closing. Wright started out the sales pitch right, complimenting her potential customer’s taste. She tweeted at Holland to compliment him on his new suit from the Infinity War trailer. Holland… Read More

How are you handling unsigned free agents in fantasy baseball, which fantasy-relevant player yet to sign worries you most? Tristan H. Cockcroft: The Hot Stove season is officially upon us. Wait, what, it’s mid-February?! We are now 18 days away from the first of the League of Alternative Baseball Reality (LABR) "only"-league drafts, and the realization has dawned upon all of us: We’re highly likely to commence those drafts, in which free agents are eligible but must be instantly released to the league free-agent pool if they sign in the other league, with at least one fantasy-relevant — or let’s say "unquestionably roster-worthy in fantasy" — player still seeking employment… Read More
