An inter-office softball game was held every year between the Marketing Department and support staff of one company.
The day of the game, as hard as the Marketers tried, the support staff whipped the Marketing Department soundly.
In their best tradition, the Marketing Department decided to find the best “spin” they could on the dismal result. They showed exactly how they earn their keep by posting this memo on the company intranet after the game:
“The Marketing Department is pleased to announce that for the recently-completed Softball Season, we came in 2nd place, having lost just one game all year.
The Support Department, however, had a rather dismal season, as they won only one game all year.”
