Sometime around 150 years ago Abner Doubleday created a game called baseball. He paid a small group of talented man to play. Time went on and they televise the game. As a young boy I watched and idolize these players and spent a lot of time in the backyard throwing a ball with my brother. We dreamed of one day earning the big salaries that those baseball players were paid to have fun. Neither one of us ever saw that paycheck.

About a week ago 40 million people were playing the game Fortnite. One got a paycheck for $250,000. 39,999,999 of them stayed home with empty pockets. This is the new dream for that younger generation and it is their argument to their parents. ”let me practice this in my room and I can make millions instead of busing tables and make hundreds”

Those who know me well have always labeled me a strong forecaster. I make my plans based on my forecast of the future opposed to my understanding of the past.
By the way, playing video games is a sporting event now. My son tells me that people send them money to watch them play.
