Daymond John Is One Cool ‘Shark’

Daymond John

Inspiring people who are role-models are often difficult to come by when it comes to today’s television shows.

Programs are often so full of rude, crude and offensive behavior from people with the same qualities it is making TV harder and harder to watch.

ABC’s “Shark Tank” thankfully has little of that so-called “edgy” material in it, though the hosts can sometimes be unnecessarily rude to each other as they battle it out to possibly invest in others’ dreams/inventions.

Another reason I enjoy the program is the presence of Daymond John. The FUBU creator and business entrepreneur comes across as a good man and role-model in a time when the world is practically crying out for decent people.

Although he has an unwavering desire to succeed in his many ventures, John still displays his huge heart and compassion. He once ‘chased down’ a couple to complete a deal when he knew it would be in their best interests to work with him.

That just doesn’t happen on “Shark Tank”, where once you show your hand a deal either gets done, or not, often in the best interests of the hopeful entrepreneurs.

Things won’t come easily for the business hopefuls, whether or not John or his colleagues, like Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, invest in them or not.

Perhaps that’s the way it should be.  John started out by working on his FUBU business while keeping a full-time job at Red Lobster until he built it up.

So keep on keepin’ on Daymond John. The world needs more people like you!

This TV Critic Hopes Twitter Is Here To Stay!
A recent newspaper article that indicated Twitter is some kind of fad that could come and go in the next few years seems kind of sad to me. The great equalizer in our society isn't economic or legal or anythin

Missing Sammy Davis Jr., Twinkies
I just noticed that the late, great Sammy Davis Jr's birthday, Dec. 8, came and went over the weekend. I miss the talented man, who broke down racial barriers through high great singing, dancing and even acting skills. Yes, even the latter, as judged by his appearance on the TV classic "All in

I'm a strange 'cat', I'll admit it. Just ab0ut completely broke all the time, yet I am as conservative as the day is long. And I always will be. In a similar way, I have always been among the working middle class, or poor, lol, but tend to see things in the owner's point of view in many res

Bob Costas Should Stick To Sportscasting
Let me first say that I have always admired and enjoyed Bob Costas' work as a sportscaster and sports talk show host. The way he can shift gears from football to baseball and even the Olympics is impressive to watch and listen to. One area he should stay out of however, is politics, including
