No sick days: The Cubs' GM managed to close the deal to sign a new player for the team while undergoing an angioplasty-related procedure. Wow. Now, that shows dedication to the job. From Sports Illustrated:

Chicago Cubs general manager Jim Hendry underwent an angioplasty at an Orlando-area hospital and was recovering Thursday. He closed the deal for left-hander Ted Lilly from the hospital Wednesday night while undergoing a procedure.

"Ted had no idea where (Hendry) was, or anything," said Gary Hughes, a special assistant to Hendry. "It was business as usual."
