Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock and his business partner Dany Garcia just acquired The XFL. I find this fascinating on many levels, one, Dany Garcia is the Rock’s ex-wife and they are still business partners, two, Dany is now the first Woman to own a sports franchise, third, the Rock had a show on HBO called Ballers which pretty much mapped out the Rock’s masterplan on our tv screen every Sunday night. If you know anything about the Rock and his business and production teams, they don’t half ass anything, I can’t wait to see the promotion of their new product, I wish them nothing but the best, I’m beyond excited!
It truly feels like we are in a movie right now but we can’t panic, we must remain calm. From time to time I like to bring sports analogies into my conversations to drive my point home, so bare with me. In the mid 80s I played 8th grade basketball with one of South Carolina’s greatest basketball player’s, Gerald Daise(google him), he was a phenomenal human being as well. To start, football season always started first, so we all decided to tryout for the team, but we soon found out that we didn’t have enough players to put on the field so our football season was forfeited. We took that extra time to build chemistry amongst us players and when the basketball season started we was like the Showtime Lakers. We had a great season, ended our playoff drought but we got knocked out in the 2nd round but I still considered that season a success. We took a failed football season and turned it into great basketball season. We didn’t let fear stop us, we kept pushing forward. Our goal was to make the playoffs and we did! The COVID 19 Pandemic is our opponent right now, we can’t let fear overwhelm us, we must keep our head in the game. We must stay calm during this storm and we must keep the faith, failure is not an option, this is our season for victory, this is our true awakening!
