Should Manning retire after Potus tweet?

The score was relatively close up until the end of the 3rd quarter. It could have been anybody’s game. This is where the separation comes in. Who wants the win more? Apparently, the Denver Broncos did. Peyton Manning with the help of his colleagues took the Championship. Now, will Manning take his final bow after such a glorious season?

The atmosphere was abuzz with the anticipation of a smackdown of a game between the Panthers and the Broncos. There was also the question of Peyton Manning’s retirement hanging from everyone’s lips. Who remains standing at the end of this game will perhaps predict if Manning will hang up his cleats or not.

Capitalizing on Cam Newton’s mistakes, Manning and team breezed passed with the win. Cam_Newton_SB50_quoteThe NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell presented the Lombardi Trophy to the Broncos, but no real word on Manning’s status. “If this is his last rodeo it’s been a great ride,” Goodell said according to Mike Klis, 9News Reporter. “We thank him for that. It’s been extraordinary performances. What a man. I think he should go out on his own terms. That’s his decision.”

Peyton Manning did not make viewers anymore settled with his response to the Sportcaster’s questioning while accepting the Lombardi Trophy. It seems as if Manning may be leaning towards staying in the league. It is unclear. But after the President of the United States congratulates you in an official tweet, it would make you think that there could be more.

Potus_Tweet_SB50Perhaps, Manning could be questioning himself. If he retires now, what if there are more glory days still left in him? This could be the male psyche playing with his emotions, but whatever it may be that could be keeping him from being forthcoming about his plans has to be something really good.

Well, after the last note of the Star Bangled Banner was sung, the  halftime festivities silenced and the last piece of confetti has been swept from the field, we are still waiting to  hear Peyton Manning’s final decision. It would be great to see a continuation of the 2015-2016 season, but if it must be the end it was great ending to successful season and career. Best wishes to him and his team members.

John West’s Bomboard, a modular and ultra portable jet ski

For those who live in the midwest and upper east coast areas the thought of sunny skies, sandy beaches and refreshing blue water is like a mirage in the midst of inches of snow, three layers of clothing and snow boots. Inventor John West has made hitting the beach so much easier for water lovers with his portable jet-skis Bomboard. West talks about his passion for water sports and what inspired him to create Bomboard in a recent interview.

Having a successful 30 year career in high technology, John still longed to create something that would satisfy his passion for water sports and appeal to the younger generation. In his quest to bring his vision to fruition, his experience in technology and as an Officer in the Marines during the Vietnam War gave him the extra determination to keep moving forward. “…One of the things that define an entrepreneur is [what] I call ‘grit’. You gotta have that ‘stick-tuitiveness’ that says ‘I’m going to keep doing this until I get it right.’ I learned that in doing products in the technology industry that sometimes if you do something that’s a true innovation that it takes a lot of tries… There will be plenty of road blocks along the way and there will be a lot of naysayers…if you let that get you down you’ll never do anything,” explained West.

Bomboard is a luxury portable jet-ski that rivals the heavier. and less user-friendly ones. If you take it on vacation or to your local beach, Bomboard will be the envy and rave. What makes this product high-end is that you will not be able to buy it in any specialty store, such as Dicks Sporting Goods, as it will be directly sold to the customer. Body parts are manufactured in the United States while the motor parts will be outsourced abroad. West’s Bomboard couples high-quality with portability, resulting in a successful product. One of the craft’s claims to fame is that it is the first modular jet ski, allowing users to disassemble it and take it on the go without requiring a large vehicle or truck.

He looks to the future of Bomboard in competitive water sports and by creating customized luxury jet-skis to suit riding in white water, the ocean, the river, etc. West envisions people wearing statement gear proudly boasting “I’m a Bomboarder.” The possibilities are limitless and Bomboard is the wave of the future of jet-skis.
