Investor is the chat nickname of Ricky Lobel, Hedgehog's first non-family investor. It's an accurate label! Gonna label the Lobel? Gotta do it right. Around here that Investor is a legendary figure.
Last month we needed to kickstart the Hedgehog rewards program. Ricky stepped up to the plate for a white-hot streak. He shared all of these stories off the cuff, to encourage and edify new entrants to the Hedgehog community. (By the way... join us on Discord!)
His proverbs were drawn from real life — for various definitions of "real." We preserved the following text here so future generations can enjoy its essential wisdom.
One time I was privileged to meet Doug Weight, who was an important member of the Anaheim Ducks some time ago. He was the centerpiece of a trade that sent away one of the Duck's most popular players, so he was not well-liked.
After an ugly loss, with my extensive connections to the Ducks I happened to meet Mr. Weight. I said hi, that I was a big fan, and he proceeded to close the elevator door on me. A season later he was traded and soon was out of the league.
