Who and Why?

In Blog, Hustle Podcast by Eric ByrnesLeave a Comment

Saw legendary college football coach Lou Holtz recently give a virtual talk and he said there was a two part question he used to have all of his players answer:

“If you did not show up, who would miss you and why?” 

Dang… That’s a tough two. 

I’d like to think there are people that would miss me but other’s perception of me and overall dependence on me isn’t necessarily always within my control…

That said, for our dude Lou let’s go ahead and give this the old college try. 

Who would actually really miss me. 🤔

First off I think my Mom would miss me because she heavily relies on me for my witty sarcasm, shit disturbing anecdotes at the family dinner table and of course my fantastic book recommendations…

My wife would miss me because regardless of what she might tell you, she thinks I’m funny… 

My kids would miss me because my online shopping habit since quarantine started has included 4 mini bikes, 2 mini army jeeps and a sick bright orange Go Kart… 

My friends would miss me because my debate skills and trash talking abilities are intellectually challenging and simply next level…

My 10U baseball team would miss me because nobody on earth throws a better game of TB Cheddar Cheese or 3 flies up than yours truly…

My fellow MLB Network crew would miss me because they would need to find somebody new to make fun of that wears their pants as tight as I do… 

My “No Filter Network” co founder Joe Manuele would miss me because innovative tequila based brain collaboration sessions take a special person & next level top shelf shit that only the most experienced free thinking tequila connoisseur like myself could provide… 

Stevie SuperSoft would miss me because within the first 48 hours of my exit he undoubtedly would OD on cocaine & hookers… 

Last but certainly not least, I believe my Daily Hustlers would actually miss me…

Not because of the savage sage wisdom divulged 5 days a week or the tough love approach that demands accountability from all of you gosh damn snowflakes out there, but rather I believe it is trials and tribulations of my life, my flaws, and the transparent revealing of my countless shortcomings that make all of you sickos feel a little bit better about yourselves…

Sweet, now that I got that out, your turn to answer good ole Uncle Lou…

Feel free to reply & share. 👍
