Ted Leonsis is one of the more magnanimous owners in pro sports. I say this not because he might buy the Washington Wizards and seek my input for franchise decisions, and not because he already owns the Capitals, the NHL's hottest team, and the last bastion of Washington sports dignity.â†µ
And not even because he's an investor in SB Nation. But because it's true. Like Abe Pollin before him, everyone seems to agree on Ted. He's just a gregarious, genuine, and good-natured person. Can never have enough people like Ted Leonsis, and God I hope he buys the Wizards.â†µ
And hey, he wrote a book! "The Business of Happiness" is in stores now, and you can order it here for just 18 bucks. The best hockey player in the world had this to say:â†µ
"A happy team can be a winning team. It's all about following Ted's belief in happiness and success. I buy into it completely, and it really works; I believe Ted's book can help you become MVP in your life, work, and at home."â†µ
And while Alex Ovechkin definitely didn't read a 300-page book written in his second language, the rest of us should. Because Ted's pretty awesome, and whatever lessons he's got, the rest of us could probably use.
