New Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam appears to actually be the kind of real-life “cowboy” that so many recent politicians want voters to think they are.
He’s a straight-shooting, business savvy, Rock-Hudson-in-Giant type of guy. Or at least that’s the persona when he steps up to the mic.
After a decade of Randy “I’d-rather-play-with-my-English-soccer-team” Lerner, Haslam is a breath of very American fresh air.
Whether or not one subscribes to the “Great Man” theory of history (and no, Mr. Haslam isn’t Abraham Lincoln), there’s something to be said for the kind of expansive, confident, intense and high-energy leadership emanating from this U.S. business tycoon.
Haslam was born into a winning situation and has kept on winning for his entire 58 years on the planet. Heck yeah, let him do his thing!
