We're another week closer to Christmas and we're talking about the playoffs rather than the draft lottery. How will we ever suffer through this wait to see whether or not they make it or not? Luckily, the Mailbag is here to answer all of life's important questions and help us all kill a little bit of time. Can the wisdom given in this week's mailbag apply to your life? Maybe. I feel pretty good about it. If you have something you'd like to ask, email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or hit me up on Twitter at @jsbmbaggedmilk. Now sit back, relax, and waste as much company time as possible. Have a good week, everybody.
