Who’s ready to take a wild ride on the loves train? Well, that’s not quite how things went at Wrestlemania. But there was love in the air as John Cena proposed to his girl. There was more happening in Orlando as Jimmy Fallon visited his Universal Attraction. Fallon & Cena made a fantasy ride in Orlando seem surreal.

The new ‘Ride Through New York’ at Universal is getting major reviews. Fallon told the NY Press that “It’s an idea I had seven years ago. I pitched it to the Universal Theme Park folks and they politely passed.” Now the ride is here, proving how a dollar, a dream and a destiny need good timing to come together.

After getting a ‘no’ from park execs on his proposal he went on doing other things. As the Tonight Show became his main thing, Fallon says he got a call back saying they were ready to rethink the idea. Three years have passed since and now Fallon has a show and his own ride as a ‘life-imitates-art attraction.’

While that happened in one part of Orlando, Cena had another kind of proposal for his long-time girlfriend after winning their Wrestlemania match. Thankfully he got a ‘yes’ on his first try. It felt like destiny as his mother was there to see him perform and propose. His good friend Fallon was also in the audience.

They know in pursuing a personal relationship or a professional dream that when you dig deeper and think outside of the box good things can happen. Maybe Fallon’s idea at the time seemed premature or presumptuous. But the ‘gods’ had it come together after a while with the right biz players and life partner.

Ready to take ride on loves train? Well let’s just make it plain. Saying how it went down. At Wrestlemania meltdown. With fresh love in the air. John Cena gives girlfriend a stare. Proposing on Orlando stage. Hit social media page. Fallon did a little thing too. Opening new attraction so folks come on thru.

Like a ride through NYC. As a Universal magical spree. Getting major buzz and reviews. Fly, but no need to take off shoes. Idea he had seven years ago. Now it’s real and a go. Pitched to those who call the shots. The answer was no space on the lots. Now peeps set for priming. Dollar, dream & destiny’s timing.

Moving from a ‘no’ by park execs. His passion muscles he would flex. Doing other things meantime. As Tonight Show became his dime. Says he got a call back. So his vision he would unpack. As the idea got reset for another round. Look at what they done found. For a ‘life-imitates-art’ fun-filled compound.

That happened in one part of town. As Cena was throwing down. Making another proposal thing. By putting on the ring. After winning event match. He had a full house to watch. With ‘yes’ right there on her mind. He knew she was the best find. Felt like destiny couldn’t hide. Mother & friends there on the side.

Whether love interest or pure dream. Gotta dig deeper for the winning team. Thinking outside of the box too. Then good things happen for you. Maybe Fallon idea seemed premature. But now more than money-making dujour.  The ‘gods’ had it come together. The right players, partner and life’s pleasure.

The ‘big diesel’ is talking stuff again. Shaquille O’Neal is saying he’s in the top 3 of all-time NBA centers. On a list of his all-time greats he puts Bill Russell at #1, Kareem Abdul Jabbar at #2 and Patrick Ewing at #7. Shaq and Ewing might not have been the most elegant in the paint, but probably the most dominant.

At a recent statue unveiling event, Shaq told Sports Illustrated and other media “There’s two things that made a crowd go crazy: a deep, contested three and a dunk. I always tried to dunk to intimidate my opponents and to make the crowd go crazy.” Everyone has different reasons that put them in ‘drive.’

During their NBA careers Shaq and Ewing brought something different to the game. Ewing had a medium range shot while guarding Shaq in the paint was a hassle. They know whether in college or beyond, the key to improving their game as athletes or industry leaders is to discover strengths.

Ewing would probably love to see the Knicks do better. Shaq’s happy for the Lakers’ honor as a go-getter. As the Final Four squads have been set, they and others hope their team gets to cut down the net. It will be about how stars and role players deliver the goods on the court with hunger and hustle.

Some think Ewing’s in the running to be Georgetown head coach. He got major props from Detroit Piston’s head coach Stan Gundy. Even though Shaq & Ewing had issues with aspects of their game that people might debate over, the real ones bring extra heart that put them in the winner’s circle.

The ‘big diesel’ back at it. Gonna put some fans in a fit. Saying he’s among top 3 all-timers. As NBA center ballers. Giving Bill Russell #1 spot. And Jabbar #2 in the lot. Ewing takes #7 place. Others filling-out the space. They not the most elegant. But probably for some most dominant.

At recent statue unveiling. Shaq rising to the ceiling. With lots of media in the house. Not expecting him to be a mouse. Things that made crowd cheer. Was three-pointer or dunk in the air. How he’d use it to intimidate. And make crowds go crazy mate. Different reasons to have drive. Watching them come alive.

During career in their prime. Various skills brought at the time. Ewing with medium range shot. Shaq in the paint, hassle opponent got. Whether in college or beyond. Working with team players to bond. Key to taking game to new heights and lengths. As athletes and leaders is to discover strengths.

Ewing hoping Knicks could do better. Shaq’s happy for Laker’s honor as go-getter. Season after season, day after day. Doing the best in their own way. As Final Four squads have been set. They and others hope their team cuts down net. Stars and role players deliver more. With hunger and hustle for the score.

Some think Ewing’s in the mix. For Georgetown University head coach pick. Got major props from coaches old and new. From his days of Hoya’s blue. Even with issues in their game. Not much debating over their fame. The real ones bring that extra heart. To reach the winner’s circle from playing smart.

A New Way to Shine with Highlights, Insights and Media-bites that’s Exciting (Old-School Flava)

Shaq O’Neal brought the house down at the recent Basketball Hall of Fame induction ceremony. He had folks rollin’ in their seats. T.D. Jakes showed up at AOL’s Build Forum to talk about his new daytime Talk Show. Shaq went from good to great while Oprah hopes Jakes can go from God to reaching His greatest.

Jakes said his Oprah takeaway on success in biz is to “Surround yourself with a team that accessorizes your talents and who use their gifts not to compete with you but to complete the mission of what you’re trying to do.” It’s why some people make it big in the game and others make it bigger than folks expected.

Since retiring from the NBA Shaq has gone on to become a major branding icon. He’s seen on TV in ads and on TNTs basketball pre-game coverage. One thing for sure about Shaq is that he’s got a secure personality. He’s played on a few teams over his career, even joining with those who were once his rivals.

Many know how Oprah reigned as Queen of daytime TV for 25 years. She left that gig to launch her OWN cable network. It’s not surprising then that Jakes would be a fit for her channel. Beyond preacher insights, he’s done many things in uplifting entertainment. Now he’s ready to push a new door of possibility.

No matter where he played, teammates say Shaq kept things loose. For Jakes, one of his breakouts was “Woman Thou Art Loosed.” Shaq getting inducted and Jakes continuing to be a factor is a testament to their ingenuity. Maybe it’s these optimistic rules of the game that make us gracious and catch greatness.

They say Shaq brought the house down. Doesn’t take much for him to clown. Hall of Fame fans rollin’ in their seats. Another scoop of Shaqtin-A-Fool treats. T.D. Jakes makes launch of new show. Doing it in the Oprah flow. Shaq went from good to great. Oprah hopes Jakes puts fresh greatness on his plate.

Jakes giving his Oprah takeaway. On what it takes to win at biz play. Surround yourself with a team. That can accessorize your dream. In using their gifts for the making. To complete the mission for the taking. What you’re trying to do. Is raise it big with your crew. Even bigger than what some folks can chew.

Since calling it quits from the court. Shaq’s gone on to be a good sport. As major branding icon reel. Seen on TV ads and TNT’s man of steel. One thing for sure he brings. A secure personality that zings. Having played on a few teams in his career. Joining with those who were rivals to bear.

Many know Oprah as once daytime queen. Now she’s got OWN as her new scene. Left gig going on to next chapter. Of her Talk Show ever after. Not a surprise for Jakes being a fit. On her channel where insights get spit. Beyond preacher and all the way up-lifter. To embrace new door of possibility muster.

No matter where he’s played. Teammates would have loved if he stayed. Saying he always kept things loose. As if sipping on grey goose. For Jakes a breakout moment was his. When “Woman Thou Art Loosed” did fizz. Being inducted & staying connected. Testament to optimistic ingenuity of the respected.

Tip: Making it big might take being connected, but making it great takes some ingenuity of the respected.

Talkback: Was Shaq calling-out Kobe in his speech just another way of keeping things loose?

With Higher Hopes, Bolder Dreams and Greater Teams (Old-School Flava)

Well Nicki Minaj won big at the 2015 BET Awards. She got her sixth consecutive best female hip-hop title. But Lebron James is about to win even bigger. The word from his camp is that he’s opting-out on the second year of his contract. James looks to stir the pot for more game and contract dollars.

He’s not planning to leave Cleveland. He’s just looking to raise his stake. James understands the money chain linking his strengths and his value. Some teammates might wonder “Will he let them break us apart?” TNTs Shaq might say it’s simply about striving for greatness as the NBAs ‘Royal Highness.’

James vows to fans he’ll get better by working on some things. During the off-season it’s also about raising his game. As a proven champion he knows striving for greatness means working on your next level of performing. That is often about what you produce in people and what people produce in you.

It’s no surprise then that James is willing to own the role of team leader. With playoff injuries to Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving, it was asking a lot of him to win it all. The best he could do was to rally other players towards making an impact. So, are the Cavaliers poised to turn the letdown into the get-down?

James puts no limits on his game or market appeal. This is seen with the many products he endorses. His value at home or beyond the block grows leaps and bounds. His next level of performing, leading and branding is seen in an upcoming movie. Even in the downtime James stays on the run and ready to ride.

Not planning to leave Cleveland you see. Just looking to raise his stock commodity. Understands the money link from strengths to market value. Whether on basketball court or other venue. Some locker-room chatter about breaking-up team. TNTs Shaq might say like Biggie “that’s all a dream.”

Vows to fans he’ll get better. Also working on some things as a jet-setter. During the off-season it’s about raising his game. A proven champion’s always mindful of his acclaim. Striving for greatness in how he’s performing. To produce in people as people produce in you adds to one’s rising.

No surprise then he’s willing to own the role. As team leader near and dear to his soul. With injuries to Irving and Kev Love. Had to rally others to rise above. James winning it all was asking a lot. But superstars know how to hit the spot. Poised to go from playoff letdown. Into next season stats getdown.

Puts no limits on his appeal. In being himself and keeping it real. As seen with the many products he plugs. Valued at home and beyond like tire lugs. Next level of performing starts with leading. Also add-in new movie trailer loading. Even in downtime James stays on the run. Ready for the ride and to have fun.
