It’s August and we’re halfway through 2017. That can only mean one thing: School’s about to start in a few weeks, and mom and dad are running around trying to fill the rest of the family summer vacation calendar with enough activities to keep kids busy for the next 30 days.
In 1996 a young brash, load mouth kid from the Los Angeles, California became the number one overall draft pick in the NFL draft that year. Keyshawn Johnson, the unforgettable wide receiver out of the University of Southern California was selected by the New York Jets and immediately became a polarizing figure in not just pro football, but in all of pro sports.
I’m at work, it’s March Break and the kids are home for a week. I get a call from my wife who runs and operates her own business sometimes from home. “Your son wants to go dumpster diving.”
“You heard me,” she continued. “Dumpster diving.”
“He says it could make him money. He can do it as a business.”
