Small liberal arts school, no big sports, so relating to jock-sales culture has been a journey for me lol

...but can I get some love for my tiny NAIA school?? 😂

I may know them, I played ball at a liberal arts school before realizing 50k a year was aggressive and they messed up my scholarship so I was out after a year for a pretty rad community college.

Totally, most of my sales team is from the nearby state school- which provides all the necessary ingredients to turn a work lunch into a diet frat party
