The Transfer Window Opens… During BaselWorld!

Welcome to BaselWorld… You've Been Let Go.

Screaming Jesus On A Ferris Wheel

This was, without a doubt, one of the weirdest BaselWorlds ever.  While there were some people who received bad news the week before BaselWorld opened (which is a BUSH LEAGUE move, by the way), there were a few notable Human Resource catastrophes that played themselves out right in the middle of the day in the booth during the fair!

Now in all fairness, I haven't sat on the other side of the BaselWorld table since 2009, but my common sense tells me that perhaps it is NOT such a hot idea to relieve someone of their professional duties during a busy BaselWorld day and "frog march" them out of the booth in front of colleagues, customers and press.

I am not sure that my Smart Watch app would have been ready for that.
