The real change guy outside of the UDistrict Safeway passed away. His back story is very interesting considering where he ended up. In 2009 he was Vendor of the week and left with this: “You only go around one time in this life. Live it to the fullest. When I die, I don’t want them to say I didn’t do this, I didn’t do that. When I die I want them to say, he didn’t leave a rock unturned. Life...

Allen Iverson, NBA icon, struggles with life after... →
What a tragedy! This was reminded me of the 30 For 30: BROKE episode in so many ways. Is this a story of being built up to be torn down, was he consumed with his image and by fame? Or is it both? While the media is notorious for blowing things out of proportion, regardless, I just hope he gets the help he needs. Iverson was a role model to many of us for defying the impossible. Arguably one of the...

Very introspective read. Shoutout to Eddie Huang! I love the post about supporting local, and how we should support business and people that are giving back to their community.
