As a teenager in Hafnarfjörður, one of my favourite haunts was an odd little shop called Músík & Sport ("Music & Sports"), which sold records and sporting equipment. As the name would indicate, that store offered everything a young President could ever want or dream of, a veritable Mecca of self-realization and expression - a haven for both body and spirit. Through my life's journey, I have done my best to honour the values and maxims that spoke to me as a young man, the same ones that attracted me to Músík & Sport in the first place, the ones which it encapsulated so perfectly.
I like to think of that odd little shop as my starting point, the place where I embarked on the journey to become the man I am today.
And thus, it is only fitting that a show which offers a glimpse into that journey draw its title from there.
Thank you, Músík & Sport."
