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.


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


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.
