Dear Paul B Sports Fans,
I am aware that I am circumventing around the Bears Loss to the Despised Packers (I hurt inside just like all of you!) I just can’t seem to avoid addressing this story about this great car salesman that comes into work with his Packers tie on and is showed the door. WTH is this all about? I understand that he is amongst the leaders in sales at this dealership (don’t want to dump anymore shame on the owners than is necessary here) where they tout that “We Are Huge Bears Fans.” I would hazard to guess that half of the employees who bet were betting on the Pack! So how many “heroes” would admit that they are NOT true Bears fans, and why should it make any difference anyway. Sports is just sports, right? My whole family are Sox fans, but my Sam, 12, asked me once if I would still love him if he wanted to switch to the Cubs. I answered politely “Sam, of course I would still love you if you switched over to the Cubs, just not as much.” He was happy with that response, and continues to root for the South Siders. So, the great conclusion to this near “Death Of The Salesman,” is that another dealership hears the story, scoops him up in a New York minute and he is happier than a pig in slop. AND, a half dozen customers, including a fleet buyer, has committed to buying their cars from the new man! I just love the happy ending. In these difficult times, I hope that these “sore losers” learned that there should NOT be a fine line between
sports and business. My hat is off to you, Mr. John Stone, for showing your “right to Bear arms/ties” whenever and wherever you so wish. Next time I am in the market for a new car, I will drop in to check you out.
