I’m celebrating because it is MLK Day, Bow Tie Monday and I had the chance to see my Boys from Rantoul, IL.

Never let anyone else determine your value or vision.

When I started thinking about my ancestors they poured this song into my spirit.

“I know you will make it through, blessings in all you do. When you make it through, come back and help your crew.”

When I wear my Calvin Hodge Impress ME Custom Apparel band that tells me, Don’t Complain…Compete! It makes me feel like TIEder Man.

SEW What

January 8, 2020

The TIE Man has noticed a SEW What attitude with our youth in Sports Education and the World. A young man rolled up on me in his wheel chair and demanded my scarf. He does not talk so he pointed to it and tied it up for me before we out into the cold. 1. He communicated and 2. He made it work. If you work with a young man or woman please let them know that they can make it but in order for them to be successful in Sports, in Education or in the World we have to have communication skills and effort.
