King of the losers

I answer my phone all the time to numbers I don’t know.  When you’re at the bottom of the heap, the difference between calling someone back and picking up the first time can be the difference between getting booked and not.   

Ergo I talk to a lot of flakes and cranks.  A guy called today saying he wanted me to be in a movie called Planet of the Maids.  I have no idea who he is or how he got my number.  He started to tell me about it but I told him I didn’t care as long as it wasn’t porn and I get paid.  I doubt anything will come of it. 

A couple years ago a video went viral of a “soccer mom” getting mercilessly beaten by an MMA fighter.  The narrative wasn’t exactly right, the woman was a fighter, she was just a shitty fighter.  Whenever you look at the early fights of a boxer or MMA person, you see a lot of people with 0-3 careers.  She’s one of those.  Someone who had a dream and was quickly shown that dream was not a good idea. 

I’m pretty sure I saw that woman at the gym this morning.  I wondered if people like her and I ever fight each other.  Do the people pulling the strings know who’s who and they make sure it’s always a legit fighter against a loser?  Does Glass Joe ever fight Max Key? 

I have a dream to run a jobber wrestling tournament with all the guys that always lose on TV.  The tagline would be “someone’s got to win”.  And then they would be crowned champion of the jobbers.  I think people would watch that.

Putting clients first by putting employees first, immediately after prioritizing fiscal responsibilities and leveraging profitability towards exceeding by empowering our employees to put clients (and themselves) first, in a diverse and respectful environment of only those that come first, first.
