Hey Le'Veon - just saw a video of you down in Miami riding some jet skis and it looked like you were having a pretty good time. I'm here to offer, and help transition your career, into the world of Watercross Racing. 

First off, lets get the obvious out of the way.. you have a bit of free time on your hands right now and you enjoy riding jet skis. Makes for the perfect match right? 

I just would hate to see a world-class athlete like you wasting a second of his prime. Lets turn this new found hobby of yours into a new career option while you weigh your other offers. 

Ok I know I know, you may have never even heard that people even race these things.. and you may be wondering why you would leave one of the biggest sports in the world to join one of the lesser known sports. But if you have a minute (I have a feeling you might have a few right now), I'd like to tell you a little more about racing and how we can help each other out. 

To give you a brief history of watercross, we have been a sanctioned sport since the early '80s. You can imagine what the beaches were like back then. The 90's saw a spike in popularity as races were featured on ESPN, the national tour was sponsored by Budweiser, and Vanilla Ice even came around and joined a few races at the height of his popularity. Since then, the 2000s have seen a bit of a dip in exposure for the sport, although we've seen a recent surge with Fox and CBS showing the Pro races now. This is where I believe you could help us and get us some more exposure. 

So what can we offer you? Why should you help us out? Because we can help you out just as much. Here is how:

Travel the world!

Watercross races are held in some of the best destinations in the world. Not just crowded stadiums and cities that are the same old year after year.

You'll get to go to the World Finals held in Lake Havasu City, AZ.. one of the top Spring Break spots in the nation.. 

You'll get to go to Thailand and be treated like royalty at the King's Cup..

You'll get to travel all around South Florida for the P1 AquaX tour..

You'll get to go to Jakarta and Bali for racing in Indonesia..

You'll get to go to Dubai for some of the best racing in the world with the UMI tour..

The list goes on and on! 

Be The Face of The Sport 

Sure, in the NFL you are one of the biggest stars right now and pretty much a consensus as a top 3 RB currently playing in the league. What happens in 5 years though when your beloved franchise finds a new, younger shiny toy and all of a sudden fans are trading in your jersey for some punk 20 year old? 

Now look at your future in watercross racing.. your name would be synonymous with the sport as Michael Jordan is with the NBA, as Derek Jeter is with the MLB, as Gretzky is with the NHL..

Giving you a spot on the team is giving you a spot in history as you're guaranteed to go down as the most famous jetskier ever. 

Extend Your Career 

NFL careers are notorious for being short, about 3 years on average. However, with Watercross Racing, we have guys that are in there mid-40s winning Pro World Titles still. The biggest hit you're going to take is from falling into the water. Hell, jumping into water is a sport in itself, so you know it can't hurt too bad. 

Join a Championship Team

We here at Dean's Team have been on a bit of a run lately. Since 2009, we have been Yamaha's Factory Racing team. That waverunner you were on in Miami is actually a Yamaha (the VX deluxe model). The one we would have you racing on is similar (the GP1800 I think would be a good fit), but add a supercharger and a few hundred HP under the seat. 

Just in the past few years, we've won four consecutive Pro Stock World Championships and three consecutive P1 AquaX Enduro Championships. We know what it takes to win, and we know how to get you some championships to your name. 

So what do you say Mr. Bell? I know this is a big decision and there's a lot to process - feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions. I'll leave you with this parting gift of what you could look like crossing the finish line. 

Thank you for your time and hope to you from you soon

- Dustin at Dean's Team
