Take a look at this goal: Clarence Seedorf scores the game winner. A great strike by Clarence Seedorf of AC Milan, in the 91st minute. The game winning goal no less. If you don't care for the sport, you're like "eh." If you like the sport, you're thinking, "that was a great goal." If you're an announcer who supports Milan, like Tiziano Crudelli, you get something like this (Tiziano is in the foreground): Tiziano Crudeli loses his mind. It all boils down to the emotional investment. When you're emotionally invested in something (family, occupation, leisure), your passion shows, even if... Continue reading

Keith Elam aka GURU, one half of the dynamic rap group Gangstarr, is recovering from a severe heart attack. The attack occurred over the weekend and GURU was placed in a medically induced coma. While a few Internet posts reported his demise, it appears that after successful surgery, GURU is expected to make a full recovery. I post this bit of news in part because Gangstarr was one of my favorite music groups, regardless of genre, PERIOD. The title of this blog is directly influenced by the group’s third album and I always felt their beats and rhymes had a... Continue reading

Talent, creativity and ability trump all when you simply “bring it.” The Williams Sisters dominate tennis, the Japanese rule Double-Dutch, Aretha performs Nessun Dorma and Obama’s in the White House. In the end, “yes we can” applies to everyone when you put your mind to it (now about that Public Option). The ladies of Zeta Tau Alpha won the 2010 Sprite Step-Off last week. Making them the first white sorority to do so and also $100,000.00 richer. Regardless of color, gender and/or economic situation if there’s something constructive that you want to do, get out there and learn how to... Continue reading

So I get home from the gym and as I'm talking to my wife I see a large set of feathers outside the living room window. Being a New Yorker, I think it's a big pigeon, although the feathers are of a different color. After taking a closer look. We see that it's not a pigeon but this... I'm sorry. I was passing by and saw you had the biathlon on. Folks. That's not a pigeon, it's a falcon. At one point while we were snapping pics, it looked straight at us, un-fazed and only mildly curious. It flew away... Continue reading

"So how do you kill 24 hours in Rio, if you don't Samba?" -James Bond (Roger Moore) in Moonraker Yeah, I know Ash Wednesday was two days ago but countless websites and blogs are still knee deep in Carnival footage and photos. Carnival in Rio is definitely on my bucket list. Carribana in Toronto may be the most international, Trinidad’s may be the most sensual and the one in Brooklyn may be the most massive but Rio’s Carnaval towers over them all. The pageantry is second to none as samba schools from all around spend the entire year preparing for... Continue reading

We all know change is hard. Given the economic climate, folks have had to work outside their field of choice in order to pay their bills. If you think change is hard, reinvention is harder. That being said; there are individuals who reinvent themselves as they change career paths or reach various stages in their lives. Unless you’re this woman, most of us have a hard time figuring out how to start. Michelle Awuku-Tatum (aka My Better Half), who is a certified executive coach, wrote an informative and intriguing blog on how to start the reinvention process. Currently, I’m transforming...

Many events become memorable ones, especially when it’s a shared experience. Last Friday I left the comfort of my apartment and ventured downtown to the East Village to a bar called Nevada Smith’s. As my wife will tell you, I’m not much of a drinker. I wholeheartedly agree. Half a glass of wine and I’m horizontal on the couch, snoring thru DVR replay of “House.” I tend to stay away from bars because while the food may be good and the HDTV screens make the games seem larger, that’s where the drunks and 38-year-old adolescents hang out. I know these... Continue reading

Indeed, this is my first foray into the blogosphere. Named after one of my favorite albums, "Daily Operation" will provide me the chance to weigh in on world events and culture, while posting about people, events and things near to my heart. From finance, to film to football (no, the other kind), you’ll hear from me- at least five times a week. Despite the current state of things, I’ll do my best to be informative and engaging, yet brief. Folks are out there trying to make it happen for themselves and I want you to come back time and time... Continue reading
