Not only is Kansas City the home of iResQ but also the home to the headquarters of AMC Theaters, with one of their largest, if not the largest theater just a few miles north of iResQ’s offices in Olathe, KS. I had an invitation last night to attend the private screening of ‘The Fighter’ with Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale and Amy Adams. I wanted to get a picture but we technically were not supposed to have our phones with us, although I did sneak my iPhone4 in but did not want to get kicked out so no pictures…
Anyways, the movie is based on a true-story and took place in Lowell, MA (just north of Boston) both places I have been several times. Dicky (Bale) was a boxing legend but got caught up with ‘distractions of life’ and destroyed his opportunity to win a title. Micky (Wahlberg) spent his life in the shadow of his big-brother and struggling to make a name for himself. See trailer below…
Something you might walk away from the movie thinking: Overcoming struggle, battling through obstacles, and bringing a broken family back together. Now that family unified, are all fighting for the same cause. In Micky’s case, an opportunity at a Title Shot. He assumed the responsibility he had and trained properly to make this “must see” movie with a great ending…
Me, being Mr. Over-analytical, made me think of this holiday season and how many Micky’s are out there. How many people have that desire in their heart and just need that little urge to fight just a little bit more for themselves, for their future, for their family. Your story may not make it to the ‘Big Screen’ but you can still impact a person, a group, a family. A good summary may be, “Never give up, never give up”.
With that being said there is still time to get your iPod, iPhone, iPad or Mac’s fixed for your loved ones before Christmas. Be sure to call me or one of our representatives so we can be sure you choose the right options to get it back before then. OR what I have done with several of our customers is set up the order for them to get their sons or daughters product fixed and e-mailed them a copy of their invoice so they could put it in their stocking, kind of what a gift card would be – then after Christmas they are going to send it in that way it is still a surprise! There is still time!
p.s. you should go watch this…
