If you watched the NFL Draft because you were starved for sports, you saw an unusual event. Due to COVID, the entire draft was held virtually, which means we got to peek in the homes of drafted players, coaches and executives.
And yes, that means you got to peak in the home of Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury. Yes, he spells his name that way. Yes, his home is fabulous. Yes, those are designer shoes with no socks while other coaches shown had dip cups and sneakers.
Take a look at this photo of a live look-in from the Draft (email subs click through if you don't see the photo), then let's discuss.
What a spread, eh? FANTASTIC.
I show this as we enter into a recession. It's a well known fact that 30M+ people have filed for unemployment in a span of 6 weeks.
Then there's everyone else. I hope you're feeling good about your situation, but here I am - Uncle KD - encouraging you to stay lean for what's to come.
The connection to the picture of Kliff? I'm a fan of the Ryen Russillo Podcast, and on a recent episode in the last month, he recounted a story that Kingsbury told when he had him on as a guest late in his first season with the Cardinals (2019). Kingsbury had righted the ship after a tough start, and Russillo playfully asked him what he was thinking in a game earlier in the season when he was down 20+ points.
Kliff Kingsbury's Response?
"I wished I wouldn't have bought that f**king mansion."
LESSON: There's no better leverage for any situation you face professional than staying lean and not running up a lot of debt.
Stay thirsty and lean for the rest of 2020, my friends.
