Hooman err leads to life of inspiration

Full story: Orlando Sentinel

S even words nearly ruined his life. Seven stinking words. "Hey, Dikembe, you look like a monkey!" "I never knew seven words could lead to so much ugliness," says Hooman Hamzehloui.

For one time you wrote a good piece of editorial Mike. I am glad for you. Not long ago, there was an old man fan of the Washington Bullets(back then) that had his seat behind the visiting team bench. It was a classical footage on film, every game this old man will loud mouth out of his lungs not far from the visiting player's ears. I must think that veterans players used to probably warn their rookies about what awaits them at a Washington road game. Point is, he was never banned from those actions. I remember one Magic highlight showing Penny and Shaq sitting on the bench and that dude was yelling at them out of his lungs but they remained quiet and focus on the court. I dont think Artest(for example) would do the same.

Why does this guy deserve a love letter? Why does he get a free advertisement for his "motivational speaking" (give me a break)?

And, Mike, as a journalist, you totally fail here. You claim its the best thing to ever happen to him, but don't give a shred of evidence to back it up. No data on his success, not even an anecdote from a happy client.

You really need this filler during the Olympics??

Also, Hooman, a "professional heckler"...he sounds like a real ass.

Mike, you have no idea what this guy is really like! You have now enabled him to "market" his new scam! His real estate business went in the toilet because he couldn't deliver on the promises he made to his client(s). You should do a little background checking before you "promote" someone. This guy is nothing but trash.

I am appalled that you are giving this guy props...his statement:
"I take full responsibility for what I said, even though I really didn't know what I was saying" Is a complete cop-out. Take responsibilty and sincerely apologize...dont follow it up with a "yeah but I didnt know." And now he has a book coming out? Motivational speaker? Why do we care? Whats the point of this article?

Why do you all hate Mike so much??? I thought it was a great article and a great example of restoration. Everyone (even you!) deserves a chance at being forgiven and restored.

This guy has done more good in a year than you will ever do. Do you know that criticism is just a disguised compliment. Hooman is a single Dad and he has his kids 95% of the time because their mom is always out getting drunk and clubbin.

I want to start off by saying Mike you did an awesome job with this article, You are an honest reporter and report the real stuff, there are few reporters who actually tell it like it is so great job. I am a friend and former employee of Hooman Hamzehloui. I read his website HOOMANCAN.COM all the time, he gives great advise for everyday situations. I encourage all who haven't read it to. It is worth the time. Every person could always use a little more improvement, you can never have enough of that, for a better life. You need to think positive like Hooman says. "Changing the world one thought at a time" is a brilliant quote from his Hoomancan.com blog. Please for the sake of the world, read into these brilliant words of wisdom. Take it in, apply it with no judgement, you will notice your life and relationships will have so much more meaning. Hooman I admire you for what you are doing! You are carrying out your life long dream! WOW

Who ever you are.... As far as I know you have no life just like Hooman... If you know me you would never say nothing like that because is not true... now since you like to lye... let me tell you the truth... Hooman is no longer married because of verbal and physical abuse also he do not pay ever child support on time and his mother pay chhild support. I have to make a living working very hard to support my kids in a safe and great place.... he dosent have the children 95% for your information.... and im sure i know who are you.... If you cant take criticism from others then get a life....

this guy is definitely not trash. If he is trash then you must be lower than scum. I realize why your screen name is "YouRClueless" because I personaly couldn't think of a better decription of yourself.
