Marlins staff heading back to school

The Marlins once again give back to the community.  This time it is some members of the front office.

Marlins employees will head back to school on Friday to take part in a Junior Achievement Day.
The event is taking place at Parkway Elementary School in Miami. In all, 26 team employees will be teaching 20 classes. From 8:30-9:30 a.m. ET...

So far, so good.  But what in the world did the kids do to deserve this:

team president David Samson will be acting as "Principal for the Morning." Among his tasks will be reading the morning announcements on the in-house TV channel.

Then, accompanied by administrators, Samson will tour the school and visit the designated classes where Marlins employees will be teaching.

I guess the upside to this is that, while Samson is scarring the poor children for life, he won't be alienating any local politicians and messing up any potential stadium deal.
