Dear Jacksonville: Yes We Can!

First things first…Rookie Defensive Tackle and first round draft pick Tyson Alualu has officially signed a 5 year-28 M contract (17.5 million guaranteed) with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Alualu has been in Jacksonville for less than 24 hours and already the air is a lil fresher on the First Coast. He is soft spoken with a positive and determined demeanor…. which reminds me of my wish this birthday…Maybe, just maybe, Jacksonville and it’s peeps will start emulating Alualu’s style and start out on the journey of a culture change in our great city. Jacksonville’s M-O has long been two steps, forward-three steps back. We have so much to offer- great warm weather, the beautiful Atlantic Ocean, affordable yet quality higher education institutions, great economic potential- yet we risk it all with the business -as-usual detrimental, negative self-fulfilling prophecy. Perhaps our greatest attribute is our love and passion for the game of football- we just haven’t channeled that passion in the most effective manner yet! In the age of self-help books, motivational speakers, life coaches and etc. one would think that we would start to get the fact that the world will see us as we see ourselves and now is the time to prove ourselves (I am telling you- Tony Robbins would have an absolute field day in J-ville)
