I feel that with all that is going on in our country you should update all children foundations and medical facilities around the U.S. With any money you feel you have left over to spend should be used to benefit the families of our nations great disaster and to those with their own little disasters in their own cities and states. thank you for your time …
Here’s an expense that will reduce your capital and put a smile on my face. Buy me a Ford Excursion Limited fully loaded with leather seats, cd player, sunroof, towing package, Diesel powerstroke engine with all the bells and whistles. I would like Blue or Black with the beige trim at the bottom. Or if some generous person who reads would like to make our wish come true please do so. Me and my children thank you in advance for your generosity.
You should have a big international stickball tournament with teams from every country. Build the stadium on a platform built into the New York City Harbor. Pay for all the supplies too, like quality ebony stickball bats and balls with rare chinese silk stuffed inside them. Why? Why not? An add campaign would go great with it, tying up even more money. The trophy for the winner would be, of course, a diamond studded lump of platinum! All runners-up would recieve a life-time supply of Yoohoo chocolate drink. (Yoohoo is chocolate drink, not chocolate milk)
Love your business plan-it it is so honestly counterintuitive..it has to work. Let’s incorporate and issue shares of stock to our readers; the revenue used to pay a Sports celebrity to endorse STREETPLAY merchandise; it will surely lose money and fail miserably; but at least we will get big time exposure and a stickball bat with Joe Torre’s signature!!
OK Cuz, I think you should have one of your talented and creative pals write a screenplay or Broadway musical about stick ball and how it created for one average Brooklyn born boy the discipline and courage to become a big business mogel or owner of the Yankees or something. Once the movie or musical sweeps the nation, streetplay can be the official website with interviews with the stars and such. Your merchandising alone could be worth millions…T shirts reading “From catcher to Chairman of the Board” on the back with a picture of a stickball team on the front. Lunchboxes, action figures, comic books…egad the sky is the limit.
This is a great suggestion – We will be participating in the Back to Brooklyn Festival on June 13 – see our coverage of it! We would like to attend some others this summer. Please send us an e-mail to discuss this more. Anyone else – feel free to add ways to go about this – particularly in other Northeastern cities besides NY. Thanks micknpez [at] streetplay [dot] com
