DAY 181 – 182 GRAMMY CHASE: GAMBLER

I’ve experienced the low’s of failure and the high’s of success and both have come at the risk of a gamble for better or worse. I’m currently at the point again where I feel like the lyrics of this song are speaking to me. “Know when to hold em’, know when to fold em…know when to walk away” etc etc…”
In the fiber of every success story lies the thread of a gambler at heart, someone who is willing to put it all on the table. Many of my friends and associates would agree that when this is all said and done at the top of 2011 when the Grammy’s are announced, that even if my gamble doesn’t pay off, everyone will know that I played my best hand. So today, we throw it all the way back to 1979 recognizing Grammy Award-Winning Kenny Rogers –  Best Country Vocal Performance, MaleThe Gambler.
