But not while you’re in the middle of a game boys!
Sources said Josh Beckett, John Lackey, and Jon Lester (left to right) were joined at times by Clay Buchholz in the practice of ordering take-out fried chicken and biscuits, drinking beer and playing video games in the clubhouse during games. The practice began late in 2010, and the pitchers not only continued the routine this year, sources said, but they joined a number of teammates in cutting back on their exercise regimens despite appeals from the team's strength and conditioning coach.
What the heck? What would happen to you in the middle of work if you started ordering fried chicken, drink beer and played video games?
You'd be insanely happy and content with your job?

I'd be going "Yippee, I made it to the I.T. department!"
(last place I worked they had a special game room with old-skool video games, a fuzbol table, big-screen t.v. etc - it was exclusively used by i.t., unless they gave you a special invite - they also ordered in food regularly - on the company tab)
My husband worked for a place like that too - but it was one of those IT start up places. They certainly don't do that here where I work - besides 90% of our IT is from India or are weird contractors (except jespah of course).
Ha, thanks for the shoutout! There was actually pizza here today.
At the startup, there was Red Bull by the case.
Jeepers - lucky you - but I bet no alcohol and the red bull was for their benefit to keep you working rather than napping.
I'm fortunate in that I got started at my current job when it was pretty new and worked my way up to executive fairly quickly. I wouldn't be happy to walk into one of my areas and find pizza boxes and video games scattered all about, that's for sure.
However, I frequently buy pizza, tequila/beer, and set up an xbox on the projector from time to time for the employees after a particularly difficult job is done.
Good to be the boss.
