It’s been a crazy past few days in sports. Things began with news that Tony Romo would retire from football. He’s played with the Cowboys for over a decade and will quickly move to the broadcast booth. Meanwhile, Russell Westbrook and Sergio Garcia score big points and reach high marks in a tight game.

Talking with the NY Times Magazine, Thunder’s coach Mo Cheeks said of Westbrook “He’s a driven man, he’s a very disciplined person, never late, always on time. I don’t know many with that explosiveness.” Cheeks might know 3 goals that Westbrook set to light a fuse under his dreams and shine like a star.

It’s a case of shooting for those first-time goals. It’s the first time that an NBA player has averaged a triple-double since Oscar Robinson. For Garcia, not only was it his first time winning the Masters but also winning one of golf’s major events. This time he dug-in to win in an exciting 18th-hole playoff.

When Robinson set the record in the 1961-1962 season it was the last time a player had a triple-double season average. The last time someone from Spain won the Masters was in 1999. So they may have had a goal where the ‘last time’ a thing’s been done got them to a point this season of really feeling it boy.

With Westbrook and Garcia playing the games they love, it’s not hard to find times of ups and downs. Some thought Westbrook would slump after Durant left for the Warriors. But with the days as a pro moving along, having the sense of a ‘last chance’ to do something can get folks going to be at their best.

Been a crazy past few days. With sports moves and breakout plays. Began with Romo to retire. Then going to work as TV hire. Was a Cowboy over a decade. Now finding different way to get paid. Meanwhile Westbrook and Garcia score big points in game. Reaching high marks in career and fame.

In NY Times Magazine story. Telling how they shoot for glory. Thunder’s coach Mo Cheeks saying. How Westbrook is driven in practice and playing. Disciplined, never late. Always on time at departure gate. Explosive on the court in many roles. Light a fuse in his dreams and star goals.

Case of first-time goals it seems. How he stands-out from other teams. Averaging tripled-double since Oscar did. Now he’s on the all-time grid. For Garcia a first-time Masters win. Can feel the happiness in their grin. Westbrook a first-time in his prime. Garcia winning 18th-hole playoff in primetime.

When Oscar set record back in the day. Didn’t know who would come this way. Last time of triple-double average season. Gave Westbrook a hunch and a reason. Masters win last time by Spain. Was 1999 to make it plain. This last-time thing got them to a point. Where they were feeling it boy in the joint.

With both playing the games they love. Something came over them like a dove. Not hard to find those ups and downs. Thinking Westbrook would slump was word around towns. Their days as a pro moving along. They wanted to have a fresh song. Maybe ‘last chance’ before they rest. To do something at their best.


Tip: Sometimes it takes first-time, last-time or last-chance goals to fire-up dreams or shine in careers.

Where Love Beats Fear in Upping Our Game This Year” (Old-School Flava)

The fashionistas are working overtime. Many are studying what sizzles and what fizzles. With a few adjustments, some will draw-up the next season’s designs. Before you know it we’ll be hearing about the new spring look. Well, Daymond John became a fashion guru before urban wear was even cool.

Things started out when John was looking for a certain style hat. He couldn’t find one for a good price. So he used his sewing skills to make one. The hat caught-on in his Queens NY hometown so he decided to launch FUBU with a few friends. He turned a personal need into a product line by creating market value.

His business took-off as word spread. John sized-up the market, going from a startup company to a brand that captured additional market value. He knew he was on to something after doing $800 worth of sales in a few hours. He expanded into other clothing apparel. He even convinced LL Cool J to wear FUBU gear.

Now, John launched an entrepreneur academy to bring branding to the masses. He’s sharing tools of the trade along with lessons learned. By teaching what he knows John is reinvesting his success to circulate market value. It’s like going from 45 to LP to CD. He’s shifted from startup to street corner to superstar.

John can be seen each week on the Reality TV show Shark Tank. The show features a few business moguls and allows entrepreneurs to pitch their ideas to them as potential partner investors. John believes it’s going to take a rush of entrepreneurship ventures to bring about sustained recovery in the economy.

Now John launched biz ‘homie-school.’ Teaching others the cash-flow rule. Bringing brand training to the masses. With tools of the trade and expert-led classes. Reinvesting his success to circulate. More market value so others duplicate. Like going from 45 to LP to CD. Startup to street corner to superstar BD.
