See DREAMS do come true! For those of you who don’t follow baseball history was made this week. A smiling young kid from Lansing, Michigan took the city, really the sports world, by surprise when he made Los Angeles his professional sports home. And now he definitely owns a piece of Los Angeles sports world. That smiling young kid I’m referring to is Earvin “Magic” Johnson. He leads a group with Stan Kasten, Peter Guber, and Mark Walter executives of MLB and NBA just purchased Major League Baseball team LA Dodgers for $2 billion dollars.
Since ‘Magic’s no-look passing days are long gone he clearly has a new form of passing. The sports icon has made all the right passes in the boardroom. I am not sure what Magic’s role will be however history has shown he can beat the odds and be successful…anything that he touches really does turn into gold. The Lakers with his help has five gold balls to show for.
The Dodgers players and fans alike are thrilled by having Magic as their new owner. Dodgers star Matt Kemp had this to say when asked about his new owner “I think it’s tight, man, for Magic to be one of our owners,” “He knows what the Dodgers mean to L.A. Magic is very important to L.A., and the fans love him. This is a pretty good day for the Dodgers.”
Off the court Magic is putting up numbers in the world of business. Some of his business ventures are a few Starbucks, a host of movie theatres, and now Owner of the Dodgers. All athletes have had those DREAMS of “making it” well, Magic has shown us a new way of ‘making it’.
I guess we can say ‘showtime’ is back in L.A.
Until next time live out your DREAMS with some Determination, put forth Real Efforts and given your Abilities; Mean you will have Success.
