You may have heard that the Chicago Cubs Baseball team recently hired a former hot dog vendor to be the “Voice of the Cubs”. He will be the field announcer at Wrigley Field for all the Cubs home games. Sort of a Cinderella story, I mean from pushing a hot dog cart to the field announcer at one of the true cathedrals of sports. A come out of nowhere victory unlike most of the Cubs games he will be announcing. This story reminds me of the recent media blitz about the homeless man who became the voice of the Cleveland Cavaliers; apparently sports teams like these come out of nowhere to be an announcer thing.
These kinds of stories are always good news to us little guys, figuratively speaking little guys, we definitely come in all sizes. The carrot is hanging there that we may someday be the voice of something. These discoveries are much like the stories of 1930’s and 40’s movie stars who were discovered in the soda shop at Hollywood and Vine.
Whether we work at a desk, in an oil field or pushing a La Rosa cart around town, the dream of being usurped from the day to day tasks to working for a professional sports team as their announcer (or coach for that matter) is one of those things that keep us in the game, so to speak.
There have been folks pushing the La Rosa carts around town for 31 years and I believe in that time not one of them has been picked to be the voice of the Cubs but that doesn’t mean that they don’t think about it. While they push the carts to bring you some tasty treats, they are also thinking about the quality and goodness handmade into each of the bars they are selling.
