Re: “Selling Hope

Come on John... where can I find a bar in Memphis with patrons making wagers on the history of best sellers? (In fairness, you didn't specify that the betting might be occurring in our fair city; perhaps you were thinking of NYC.)

As a big fan and friend of Don's, I've talked to him about his book. (It is clearly "his" book) He worked very hard to get the exposure required to launch this gem. What he did with help from a tiny imprint of Doubleday, is amazing. Of course, Don Hutson is "just a speaker"... like Elvis was just a singer. In his long career, including his landmark book "The Sale", he has always performed brilliantly.

Don has left his audiences with thousands of "takeaways". "The One Minute Entrepreneur" is the next best thing to hearing him talk and a reader can take it away from Davis Kidd Booksellers. If a book lover ever gets the chance to bet on Don, take it.

Re: “Columnist Seeks Fellow Sports Failures

It's your blog fearless leader. I need to hear how your Quest is going to stay motivated. Since having made my single post, I'm thinking more about the idea. (age bracket competition.) I've seen an increase in my zeal level in my weight training program. One only started a few weeks before your article.

I'm days away from the launch of my running program. I still want to partner with you here on the blog but let me in on your milepost management. Maybe a few of us would even show up to offer support.
At 62 I m too late to sneak up on the guys in the 60's bracket of Masters Track and Field ( had it planned at one point). Oh well... watch me at 65! I'm blessed by holding on my college runnig weight at 174. Albeit, the six pack lines have given in to a tray of three tomatoes.
I really don't like running but "she be the one what brought me" Guess she is calling. Either, Twain or Rogers said, "Even if your on the right track, if you just sit there, you'll get run over." "Life is not about standing still." I do know who said that.

You and Loren Roberts (and young Wittenberg), go get'um.

Re: “Columnist Seeks Fellow Sports Failures

Bravo John... anything to keep us off the streets. On the other hand, a Memphian is more likely to sustain a serious injury on the field of sport than on a city street. That's reassuring for a change. Maybe I'll just resume long walks again. Is there an age group category for than? What's interesting about your reference to sports involving a ball. Those are just the ones at which I failed miserably. And there aren't too many "ball-less" sports left over. I'm too weak to wrestle, sink when I swim and the venue for darts is far too smoky. As Hick Ewing told me while on the U of M Law School flag ball team,"Keltner... you're fast a hell and I would like to throw you the ball but you've got hands like a clock. Just run your decoy route, again." Heck, I ran against O.J.,of course he "dropped the ball" as well. Press on John, inspire me !
