Last week, a couple writers for Field Gulls were able to attend the Win Forever Workshop at the VMAC, hosted by Pete Carroll and John Schneider. Living in Los Angeles, and not in Seattle, I do have disadvantages when it comes to many Seahawks-related activities that I am unable to attend on a regular basis. When the Seagals were hosting open auditions awhile back, I thought it would be a great opportunity for the YouTube channel, but of course I was too many miles away.
(Get your heads out of the gutter, it would have been a tasteful video!)
On the other hand, I'm going to assume that all of you are aware of Carroll's connections to Los Angeles and Southern California. He's more revered in LA than he is anywhere else in the world. His supporters in this neck of the woods outnumbers supporters from everywhere else, including Seattle, so of course he's going to be in LA a lot and still have Win Forever-related activities in Southern California. This past Saturday was the first inaugural "Always Compete Speaker Series" which features Carroll, and other people with amazing pasts, talking about competition and life.
Per invitation, I went down to LA Live (the Staples Center and many other venues, shops, etc.) to the Clive Davis theater to hear Carroll and WWII POW-Survivor and Olympic Athlete Louis Zamperini talk about competition. Make no mistake that Zamperini was the star of the night, and rightfully so. His story is an amazing one (he was roommates with Jesse Owens at the Berlin Games, went to war, plane crashed in the ocean, spent 47 days on a raft in the middle of the Pacific, before spending the next two years in a POW camp) and the 95-year-old USC-alum spoke a lot about his story and how he's been able to overcome the tragedy he faced during and after the war.
However, seeing as this is a Seahawks blog, I will stick to Carroll.
