Who’s your hero?
We’ve all grown up with people that inspire us. Those we look up to. Could it be a parent? A friend? A sports figure? An actor? I thought back to when I was a kid. The person who first popped into my mind was Ivan Lendl. For those of you who don’t follow the sport, he’s a former Word No. 1 professional tennis player.
I grew up playing tennis and it even helped pay my way through college. Ivan Lendl was the first “hero-type” I remember really impacting me, though. He was calm, not known for having a massive temper flaring every five minutes. Well and the fact that had some serious talent didn’t hurt either, huh? I mean EIGHT grand slam titles? HOLY MOLY.
A few years ago now, I stumbled across this group, Superchick, and I got a new idea of what or who a hero could be. It’s a sweet song, but listen to the words, those are the real kicker…..
So, who’s your hero? I’m curious.
