LOL Tube – Got Funny? (Or Just Fun!)

What’s better, to be the star of the game or the star of the show? What if it’s a game and a show? That’s what fans might debate when watching their favorite TV game show or ball player. It’s what we see with the MLB All-Star Game and Judge Judy on deck. Judge & Judy bring more face time to their game time.

Judy just launched a new TV game show. According to the Queens Courier she said “So thrilled to embark on a new adventure with such fabulous partners; iWitness is a compelling game for those from 5 through 95.” Judge & Judy show-off their power to WOW as something coming from their sweet spot.

The premise of the show is based on the magic of memory and observation from watching a video clip. The goal is to match as best as possible what really stands-out in the video moment. The idea probably comes from Judy’s years of experience in hearing people give eye witness accounts from an event.

Meantime, there’s no confusing what happened at the MLB Homerun Derby with Judge taking the prize. His performance was so telling and compelling that the Baseball Commissioner said he could become the face of the game. As any sports writer might say, the dude is young, gifted and stacked (and that’s a fact).

Yea, everything is everything and when asked about the game or show folks were happy. But it seems the WOW factor is a kind of addictive quality their presence/essence has to offer. She’s been on the TV show for 20+ years and maybe he’s ready to take a long walk or let homeruns fly like cranes in the sky.

Which is better, be star of the game? Or star of show the same? Whether in a game or show. It’s about hustle and flow. What fans might debate at the bar. Or watching ballers from afar. As seen at MLB All-Star fair. With homeruns flying in the air. More face time to the scene. More game time for the green.

Judge Judy launching game show. Aaron Judge about to rake in the dough. Judy so thrilled to take. New adventure for winner’s sake. With such fabulous biz sponsors. And TV industry watchers. Seen as compelling game at best. For those 9 to 95 at the fest. Power to stir the pot. And WOW the sweet spot.

Premise of the show is this. A way for memory hit or miss. From observation of video clip. To giving  a scoop or incident tip. Goal is to match what you see. To what stands-out not so much A to Z. An idea from evidence gathering trenches. As seen by Judy from the courtroom benches.

No confusing the homerun watch. Judge hit them beyond the catch. Taking top prize among the sluggers. Female fans among his list of huggers. A performance in range so telling. Soon to be a pitchman for things he’s selling. MLB Commish says he’s new face. Even before this year’s pennant race.

Yea, everything is everything. Don’t wait to see if fat lady sings. When asked about the game or show. Folks shared their happiness, you know. But seems WOW factor in their presence. Is addictive quality of their essence. For 20+ years she on TV screen. He ready for long walk or homerun’s gangsta lean.


Tip: The power to WOW is something winner’s deliver between their sweet spot and high point.

Derek Jeter’s Retirement Letter: A Case Study for Rallying the Job Market Blues


Theme:– Operation J.U.M.P. For Jobs, Justice & Unsung Dreams

It was another day at Yankees spring training. But this one will be remembered for Derek Jeter’s retirement press conference. The throngs of media that were there was stifling. Jeter has been a Yankee for his entire career. His retirement letter on Facebook is a case study for rallying the job market blues.

He answered questions on the thinking leading up to his decision. He was asked about his health and if that played a factor. Some in the room wanted to know how Jeter sees his legacy. He went on to talk about winning and that he was living his dream. He said “being a NY Yankee is good enough for me.”

The case study comes in when you consider the key points in his retirement letter. It was more about the team with family, friends and fans as a supporting cast. But it’s also in the attention given by the media to covering the story. What would happen if long-term joblessness were to get similar full-court press?

Think about those who’re fans, family or friends who’ve been cut-off from unemployment benefits? They also have a story to tell of wanting to live their dreams. It’s just that they’re not sports pros so maybe people don’t care as much. If asked they might say “earning a paycheck again is good enough for me!”

Jeter didn’t call his agent or PR rep before writing the letter. He simply spoke from the heart. Maybe this can spark a social reset moment for dealing with the drag of long-term joblessness. He wants to experience new things in life and that’s true for those looking to bounce back, get ahead or dream bigger.

Footnote: Operation J.U.M.P. is joining in unity to motivate progress so that working professionals who’re unemployed, underemployed or emerging self-employed can be appreciated for wanting to have the best life experience just like pros on the field of dreams.

David Ortiz Leads Red Sox as The New ‘Mr. October’ in Baseball


Theme:–The Year of ‘Growmance’
Where Love Beats Fear in Upping Our Game This Year” (Old-School Flava)

Does David Ortiz remind us of anyone? Well, former NY Yankee Reggie Jackson comes to mind. Back in the day he was the one who often pulled-off big scores during the MLB World Series. Just days ago Ortiz did the same thing for the Boston Red Sox. He led his team as the new ‘Mr. October’ in baseball.

The stage was set in game four with the St. Louis Cardinals being up 2-1 in the series. Ortiz went to bat and got on base with a double. From second base he turned to his dugout and yelled “Let’s go!” with animated hand-clapping. At the end of the inning he gave an impromptu pep talk in the dugout.

The huddle could be seen on TV but not heard. So what might Ortiz have said to the guys to get them fired-up? Well, reports are that he told them to relax and make it happen. But Ortiz might have hinted that cream rises to the top. The next inning Jonny Gomes hit a 3-run homer to put them in the lead.

Some say that was a turning point in the game and probably in the series. The Red Sox went on to win that game. We saw a game-changing turnaround that Ortiz says wasn’t planned. This might be another example of how consciousness rises to the top. The team became more aware of the power within.

‘Big Papi’ Ortiz knows that the end of his playing days is not too far off. At age 37, he’s been in the league for some time and reached the pinnacle once or twice. He’s highly regarded by his teammates as someone who walks the talk. Maybe his example has shown them that ‘class’ also rises to the top.

World Series Cardinals Red Sox Baseball

The Year of ‘Growmance’
Where Love Beats Fear in Upping Our Game This Year” (New-School Flava)

David Ortiz a flashback to anyone? Well Reggie Jackson could be that someone. Back in the day having the hot bat. Hitting homeruns and big scores down pat. Days ago Ortiz did the same thing. To earn himself another World Series ring. Led his team as new ‘Mr. October.’ With another season to remember.

Stage was set in game four. Cardinals ahead, Red Sox knocking at the door. Ortiz went to bat getting a double. Cardinals Manager knew they were in trouble. Ortiz yelled from second base “Let’s go!” With animated hand-clapping to show. Then giving a dugout pep talk. Time to get on base with hits or a walk.

Huddle could be seen but not heard. Teammates locked-in to his every word. What did he say to get them fired-up? Telling them to relax and suck-it-up. Reports are he kept things cool. Cream rises to the top as a rule. Next inning Jonny Gomes’ 3-run homer. That ball sailed like a goner.

Some say a turning point in the game. A reason for adding MVP to his name. Red Sox went on to win. Pouring champagne and sipping on gin. Ortiz used pep talk as motivating tool. Others say it was like baseball old-school. It’s how consciousness can move you to the top. Whether in MLB, R&B or Hip-Hop.

‘Big Papi’ knows his playing days could soon end. Might not be too far around the bend. At age 37 he’s no spring chicken. Still hoping for a few more tricks with his mitten. Reaching the pinnacle once or twice is steep. Highly regarded as a man who sows and reap. Showing ‘class’ rises to the top of the heap.

Tip: Upping your game is in knowing when to move and when to motivate others to make that move for the betterment of yourself, team, organization, community or country.

Talkback: How does ‘Big Papi’ compare to some of baseball’s best ever?
