Greetings fellow citizens! It's been a while, or should I say, a 'minute' since I updated yinz. In recent news, the east coast is getting smashed by snow and bitter cold. In the 'Hawaii of Pennsylvania', the home of many employees at Team, the temperature is 10 degrees today. In other news, it seems as if the U.S. economy is accelerating forward. The Federal Reserve has started to taper off their huge stimulus program, and the unemployment rate has continued to fall to a level now below 7%. In the sports world, the 49ers ruined many bay area residents night plans on Sunday. But on the real, does San Francisco really deserve another winning team? Major League Baseball hit the headlines last week when it was announced that Alex Rodriguez is suspended for the next 162 games and the 2014 postseason. The decision was based on Rodgiuez's use of performance enhancing drugs, but I also see it as a punishment for being an asshole in general. However, here at Team, we've been gripped by news of more a intellectual substance, namely the new wave of 'Bieber fever'. The 19 year old celebrity is back at it again, this time egging neighbors homes, gettin raided by 'jakes', and makin it rain at Miami nightclubs. Were all about this kid! Shit, he's only 19 and already worth 130 million dollars! If that doesn't say hard work, passion, and creativity, then we hear at Team are just a bunch of slackoffs. If you support Canada's foremost pop singer and feel like showing it, check out our Bieber shirt here. Valentine's day is just around the corner. Can you feel love in the air? I can't, because after all, love is for assholes. We just printed these Valentines cards, and as of now they are up on the web store. If you'd rather not pay for shipping, a few stores in the bay area have been nice enough to carry them. They are Pegasus Book Store up by Rockridge, Marion and Rose in Old Oakland, and Needles & Pens in the Mission District.
