I was 45 when I was given the nickname Fast Freddie. A friend of mine, Carl Frederick (author of EST: Playing the Game of Life The New Way) is the first person who called me that. He even bought me a red NFL type football shirt with the name 'Fast Freddie' printed across the shoulders.
To this day I have no idea why he started calling me that but he did me one of the biggest favors of my life.
For some reason I cannot explain, every time I wore that shirt, attractive women would stop me on the street, giggle, and asked me: 'How fast are you'? I always responded with; 'how fast do you want me to be'.... they would laugh some more and a conversation would start up, 90% of the time the conversation resulted in me having a date that night.
I am not sure what prompted Carl to call me Fast Freddie but even back then, in my forties, friends who knew me knew I was 'fast to forgive and forget' when people did me wrong. In that way, the name Fast Freddie real does apply to me. I know when Project Forgive (the documentary film project) showed on up my radar screen I moved fast in becoming one of Project Forgive's first and most passionate supporters. I believe you will become a passionate support of Project Forgive too after watching this inspiring video about the project.
