I'm not talking about the Bo Jackson's (football/baseball), the Deion Sanders' (football/baseball) or even the Michael Jordan's (basketball/baseball - although his skill in basketball FAR exceeded his talents in baseball) of the professional sports world, I'm talking about the likes of Joe Gibbs, Troy Aikman (Hall of Fame Racing), and Brad Daugherty - those that have gone from "ball and stick" sports to motor sports.
"Auto racing, bull fighting, and mountain climbing are the only real sports...all others are just games."
Is winning at a high level a core competency, no matter what the field, court, or track? Not many people have pulled it off with great success.
One thing is for sure, I don't know that anyone will ever be as successful in making the shift (back and forth a couple times for that matter) as Joe Gibbs.
Although maybe Randy Moss has a shot at it if he can win every race, INCLUDING that last one of the season! Yes, I'm still a little upset by the Pats losing the Super Bowl! Such a shame for ANYONE to go that far and not get the job done.
Not to say that Randy Moss and others haven't closely examined their investments of time, money and skill to be sure the new "arena" they're entering is within their core competency, but I cannot say enough that this is something we will be constantly doing on our quest for the "perfect season".
We will get it done!
