Fascination

Have you ever read about someone, perhaps a celebrity, a neighboring person, or just someone from the other side of the planet, who completely suprises you and you find completely fascinating?

Mark Cuban is one of those people for me.

Seriously.

I know he's a wild card (which honestly I think ROCKS). But he's also brilliant, educated, entertaining, hard working, interesting, and crazy.

Seriously.

I know you all think I'm strange (which is totally okay too), but I do.

Maybe it's because I seriously took note of him and his "works" when he bought the Dallas Mavericks on my 27th birthday. Maybe it's because my father has been a Mav's fan for a long while.

I don't know why. I watched every episode of his TV show "The Benefactor" that aired. I found it SO enlightening - and suprising. You never knew what decision was going to come next, who was going to get fired, and there was no rhyme or reason to it. I loved that I had to think about it, and every time I realized that his choices were how it would happen in REAL life. Not in TV show life. Seriously.

Whenever I find an article about him, I read it multiple times. Seriously.

I love that when he's fined for his outlandish and HILARIOUS outbursts during games, he matches the fine and gives it to charity (granted, from what I understand the actual fine is generally less than what they're initially penalized. But, it's HIS money and he doesn't have to do it.). I think it's pretty dang cool.

I think it rocks that he worked at Dairy Queen - and that he admitted it was harder to make a dipped cone than he thought.

I think the things he's accomplished in his life are amazing. Seriously. How many people do you know of who have created and sold multi-million dollar companies - multiple times? Seriously.

I don't know why I decided to share my fascination with Mark Cuban, but it's there.

Seriously!
