"No One On Their Death Bed Ever Wished They'd Gotten a Few More No-Show Jobs"

Tony Soprano's words to Phil in the season finale came back to me when I read about a recently-busted scheme by a trash magnate/minor league hockey owner to circumvent his league's salary cap by giving several players no-show construction jobs. Team owner James Galante, of Connecticut, was indicted as part of a far-reaching takedown of mob influence in that state's waste management industry.

If baseball had a salary cap, you just know Steinbrenner would try something like that, wouldn't he?
