Play the Superbowl already!!!

The Superbowl is arguably the biggest sporting event of the year, within all the sports that are played throughout. We as fans have to live through all the Media hype, then deal with all the conspiracy theories of the sports media world, who if you haven’t noticed, know everything about every sport? Lets not forget all the millions spent by the Corporate world, just so they can get our attention of their product/products, then oh yea!! there is a Superbowl half time show, that in recent years have flopped bigger than Peyton Manning did, in last years Superbowl.

Those who enjoy the game of football and know the game of football, know that to get to the game, they have to tune out all the Drama in the week before the big game, lets not forget the players who are trying to practice and focus on executing every snap, so they can help their team win the game. Yes the NFL try’s to put their best foot forward, so they can attract more viewers to their product, what is their product? The player’s and the organizations that bring in the players, so they can try to win the Lombardi trophy. Football is a brand, just like an I-phone is the brand of the company Apple. With all the effort that goes into Superbowl week and all the money spent in preparation of the Superbowl, not to mention the money spent on all the TV. Ads during the big game, one would wonder what would happen, if this money was spent on building this great country and to help make Society better and stronger, for all that walk their path along their journey of life.

Football is a game, but it is a game that brings in huge amounts of money to the NFL(national football league). This isn’t even touching the betting part of the game through Vegas, when you add in this money, it dwarfs the amount the NFL brings in, through the betting side, lets just say the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Any kind of betting in any sport, is a chance anybody takes, with only a few actually making back plus, what they originally put in to the bet, then the ones that lose the bet, only bring out the hate on the team that cost them their bet, common sense will tell you that, if you don’t place the bet and just enjoy the game as a game, then you have nothing to hate and you can enjoy the game you are watching.

When you really think about the Superbowl and are really in touch with your empathetic side, you will truly see that, if a percentage of this money spent just on a game and spent wisely to help all throughout Society, just maybe our Society will become better for all. Instead of all the Companies and yes the NFL is a company also, would spend more money on training and hiring of more employees instead of cutting jobs, they will actually have more production and make more money than they are actually making now. It doesn’t take a Rocket Scientist to figure out that, football is a game and a game that brings in big money, just so a few can squander the money away from the ones that need it most. I like football and yes I have my favorite team, only that my true sport that i love more is Hockey. The difference between someone that likes a sport and someone that loves a sport is, the passion for the game and the knowledge you have of that sport. The passion and the knowledge is what gives you the energy to know the game within the game, understand that the sport is a business first and a sport second, each owner of any sport has to make money, so they can bring in the players needed to win a championship, but what most tend to forget? Money don’t buy the championship, you need the right players that play well with each other and form a bond for each other, the chemistry of the players is bigger than the actual money, cause without the chemistry the money spent is wasted money.

” The Superbowl is the biggest game of the year for any sport, but the hype and the money spent is bigger than the actual game itself”

” Football is a game that most get lost in, simply cause they truly don’t understand the game inside the game”

” football is a game of strategy, that which ever team has the best strategy on game day, will win that game on that day”

The Sports Theory with the Life Theory…….

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA           Those who have played competitive sports and have competed at a high level no matter what sport you competed in, know that there is a fire that burns inside you, that not only helps you get ready for game day,  but also keeps you focused no matter what happens during the game, so you can finish the game with a positive instead of a negative.

This fire once lit is a very hard thing to extinguish and when a player reaches the point where he/she is at an age, that they can’t compete at such a high level and 100%, then it is time to retire from that sport, which only that certain player really knows that time, as well as how hard it is to extinguish the flame of the fire that competition holds on them.

Just as in sports where the fire burns the competitive juices from us, we in life have this fire that burns inside us and this fire drives our existence, as we walk our paths along our journey of life.

This fire within us all, is equivalent to having a deep passion for what you do and how you do it, we all have our own way of showing this passion, which shows just how unique we are to each other. Some of us don’t truly get a chance to light this fire that burns within us, simply because there are life events that get in our way and these same events can determine who we become, if we let them control the fiber of our being.

Life and Sports are very similar, when you live and play them correctly, it’s when you go off the grid of what the meaning of right and wrong are, when we don’t see the similarities they each hold for us. Then if you add in the factor of winning more than you lose, now you have a whole new situation, which is what makes life and sports no fun for anybody. Let’s look at the New York Yankees or the New England Patriots, these teams win more than they lose and because of this it breeds a lot of hatred, you have people that are simply jealous that they are not a part of their organizations, so they than give in to the idea of hating on them, which shows a quitter more than anything, instead of being the one that steps up and beats them, showing a no quit attitude, “To be a winner, you need to beat a winner”.

We all have this fire that burns deep within us, it is not just for sports players playing a game, look at life as we walk our journey like a game, it is how you play that game that determines how successful you become. When you never light that fire within you, then you will never have or find that purpose of what drives you through your journey. Tom Brady for instance of the New England Patriots, the reason he has stood the test of time in football, is the fact he lit that fire within him and found the purpose of his playing football and because of this, he will be the best Quarterback in the history of the NFL when he finally hangs up the cleats. There are a lot that hate on him because of his success, simply because they are jealous of his journey and instead of trying to beat him, they give up and take the easy way out, which is simply hating on him and saying negative things about him. You want to win at anything whether sports or life, you can never give up, never have a no quit attitude and when you see someone that is successful, make that your purpose to be like them, which means no matter what kind of life event happens to us, work that much harder to overcome the odds, work that much harder to overcome adversity, so you to can be a winner and not that loser that calls out the winner, with jealousy and hatred.

” Winning isn’t just getting a trophy or a ring, it is the respect that comes your way from winning correctly”

” To be able to be a winner, you have to step up and beat a winner in all you do”

” A true winner wasn’t always a winner, he had to learn to lose first, then they became a winner”

Addiction… The Crutch that gives us false hope.

Addiction is like the temptation, that Jesus himself resisted from Satan, we the people within this Society can win over this temptation of Addiction, as we stay strong and believe in ourselves, as well as God, just like Jesus did.

This Addiction comes to us in many ways and it does not discriminate who it try’s to control, it can be in the form of alcohol, drugs, pornography, or even nicotine, there are many more but these are the ones that stricken  us at a much higher rate,   when you are deep into an addiction, nothing else matters, but what you crave and think you need most, you form this opinion and denial in your mind that, there is nothing wrong and you are doing nothing wrong, why can’t people just leave me alone, addiction is a craving that you need something, more than anything else that may exist.

Addiction is a way of something else controlling who we really are, then you have to deal with Corporate companies feeding of those who are addicted, just so they can become even richer, as you become aware of others poking fun of, or saying negative things about you, you then fall deeper into that addiction, Whether its alcohol, drugs, sex, or cigarettes that feeds your addiction, they are everywhere, which makes these addictions very hard to break.

Addiction will control who you are and force you into things you normally would never step into, we may know better today of these addictions, but we still have a long way to go, in order for all of us to control it, instead of it controlling us.

Part of us controlling the Addiction is, we have to want to change and if we reject real change, then addiction will never go away. Change for the better is the hardest thing for anybody to except, especially if you are in the clutches of an addiction, it will also give us a false feeling of happiness, as whatever addiction you are in, is the crutch in our lives that keeps us from attaining real happiness.

Addiction may give us certain feeling, but these feelings it gives us are, feelings of guilt, shame and anger when we can’t fulfill our addiction, these feelings we  accept cause it gives us a false feeling of happiness, so we go deep into denial and rationalize away the true feelings of life and what makes us truly happy. Addiction keeps us from truly being who we are, it also is used by others because they are addicted to greed, so they feed of this to control and make more money, of those who suffer the clutches of this disease of addiction.

These Addictions control every fiber of our being and force us in becoming someone we are truly not, when these addictions come to us, it is really Satan coming to us with hopes, we all fall into temptation and weaken ourselves, so he himself can become stronger, if we all resist this temptation by understanding better of how it works, we all within this Society will be better for it, these addictions will be less powerful over us and we as Humans, will become stronger as God wanted us all, as we walk our paths of our journey of life.

” Addiction can only affect us if we let it affect us”

” We ourselves control the power of addiction, by better understanding how addiction works”

” Addiction is the temptation from Satan to weaken us, so he can become more powerful over all of us and never be jealous of God for guiding us to the path of righteousness”

Tranquility in life as opposed to Anger in life……….

early winter

I chose this picture cause it shows how calm and tranquil everything is, with the snow covering the ground and the tree’s, with a pond in the background that reflects its surroundings. This is what our journey of life should be without the strong feeling of Anger that is within us all and that we let control who we are, even when we don’t realize we are doing it.

Anger is one of those feelings we all have within us, some may not show this feeling as much as others, but we all feel its effects and deal with it differently.

We all go through issues in our lives, its what being Human is all about, its how we deal with these issues that brings out or, we suppress these feelings of anger, instead of us dealing with these issues correctly, we then let the anger within us control who we are, which is not really our true selves. Life for all of us is hard enough without having to deal with extra-curricular activities, so we teach ourselves to use this anger to deflect or, hide our issues from those around us, so we can try to move forward and try to fit into Society as if we have no issues. Some of us use this anger to act out in ways we would never do if we are true to who we are, others may just use this anger to hide our true selves, so we portray a calm and normal demeanor, We are Human first and we are an Individual with our own minds and thoughts, there is nobody that can determine 100% what is going on in the mind of another, which is the reason why we as Individuals need to know ourselves and what makes us tick, so we can control ourselves better, instead of letting this anger control who we really are.

This anger within us is a way for us to procrastinate what is really wrong with us, so we don’t have to work at the issue, cause a lot of times these issues, brings much pain to ourselves, as well as much grief, we then focus our attention to keeping the pain from us, so we move forward with letting the anger control who we are, so we can try to be normal, like we think most around us are? Nobody is truly normal, nobody has no issues, some may have lesser issues than others, but nobody is issue free, this is why we need to truly know who we are, know what makes us tick and to do this, we need to reach out to the right people, so we can be guided in the right direction.

Anger in this Society is a huge problem and is a feeling that we overlook, cause we truly don’t understand it. Sometimes we need to step back, find that tranquil place to reflect and have a good sense of calm, so we can see the big picture, understand truly who we are and how we work, so we can fix our issues and have control, instead of the issues controlling who we really are and letting this feeling of anger control our core being within us.

This tranquil place could be anywhere, some may have a room in the house they can enter and lock themselves in? Some may like being outdoors and hiking a mountain, or fishing a stream or lake? this is an Individual thing, which shows how unique we are to each other, it also shows we are Human and can think for ourselves, as well being in control of ourselves so we than can help others to do the same. We only need to understand better, know when to reach out, know that the pain we feel is real and not just we ourselves feel it, everybody feels pain, just that we as Individuals deal with it in our own way, but we can only help others when we truly help ourselves be better and truly understand how we ourselves work. This anger management of ourselves will help understand why our Society has so much hate, just that we need to truly understand ourselves better, so we than can better understand whats around us and as we do so, then we all will find this piece of tranquility so we all can live in peace on our paths of our journey of life.

” Tranquility is to peace, as anger is to hate and destruction”

” Understanding ourselves and how we tick, will go along way in understanding  how others throughout tick and act”

” Anger is a powerful feeling within us all, it will control who we are if we let it and don’t understand how it works”

The Hater’s will always hate, just to create drama for all.

People in this Society will always hate on others simply because they are jealous and don’t want to put the work in needed to succeed like those they hate.

Look at the New England Patriots and the scandal that is going on now, true maybe they push the grey area a bit to try to get the advantage, but you tell me a team that does not push the grey area and I will show you a team that is clearly not telling the truth,  if your in a competitive sport you are always looking for the advantage, the grey area is still neutral ground as long as you don’t cross the line, it’s when you cross the line that, then action should be taken against you, with all the talk of the Patriots, we haven’t heard once of other quarterbacks that have changed the inflation of the football, yes there have been quite a few and have admitted to this fact publicly, now maybe Tom or Bill didn’t truly know of this and one of the Ball Boys took it upon themselves is still a question to be determined, but this football inflation thing has been going on throughout football for some time and it’s the Media making it out to be bigger than it has to be, so they can create drama and keep their jobs.

We are people and we are Human of this Society, why we hate so much of each other you tell me? All I figure is jealousy of each other, some may have more than others, but is that a good enough reason to show hate? We only show this hate of one another cause we are simply to lazy to put the work in ourselves, it is a lot easier to show love of one another than it is to hate one another, someone may rub you the wrong way, or does something that hurts you badly, we then come to hate this person and will do anything to get revenge on that person, we never once show any empathy towards this person, maybe they to have been hurt and this is their way of getting even, it’s all one big vicious circle that never ends, by showing more empathy of each other, makes it that much more easier to show love of one another, more importantly it also helps us forgive ourselves, so we than can forgive each other, so moving forward on our paths of our journey of life, can be that of peace as we all become better and stronger within Society.

” Hate only shows how weak we really are, love is what shows our strength as we become better and stronger moving forward”

” We all have issues and hate is not the way to make these issues go away, it only compounds them”

The New England Patriots are the team to beat

The way the Patriots started the season and getting lit up at home to the Kansas City Chiefs, then all the so called Patriot fans coming out and calling for Brady and Belicheks’s jobs? Well where are these negative people now with the Patriots going to another Superbowl?

Tom Brady is one of these type of Quarterbacks that don’t come around that often and we need to just sit back and enjoy the ride, these Individuals that spoke of his decline…… well I think Brady has shut them up with his play on the field this season, Brady is also the type of Quarterback that can turn a nobody receiver, into a star in the league and if you look back at Dieon Branch, what he did here with Tom, then going to Seattle and doing nothing, speaks loudly of the type of Quarterback Brady is, he is also a true humble person and always puts his team before himself, he works the hardest in practices and studies more film on other teams defenses than any other Quarterback in the league, Tom when he entered the NFL with the Patriots, was so far off the radar no team even looked his way, but The hard work by Tom gave him his chance when Drew Bledsoe went down, then Tom never looked back and worked even harder to keep this job pretty much for his entire career, Tom’s competitive juices are second to none throughout the league and I will say he is the most competitive Quarterback in the game today.

What can you say about Bill Belichek? the only word that comes to my mind is “GENIUS”. Bill knows the game inside the game, he knows when to get players and when to release them, Bill is a very demanding coach of his players, but he only demands cause he knows how to get the very best from the players, the Patriots under Bill are the ones that came out with the no huddle quick offense with Brady working it to perfection, now with the last two games this season in the these playoffs you see a lot of different formations and plays from these formations, which throws off the defense and makes them confused on what is going to be played, goes to show what the Legacy of Bill Belichek and Tom Brady are all about, plus now you may see more teams picking up on this, so they can try to be like the Patriots? The only issue I have with other teams doing what the Patriots have success with is, there is only one Tom Brady and one Bill Belichek.

We can not mention the Patriots without mentioning Bob Kraft, since he bought this team he has become the best Owner in all professional sports. Not just being an Owner of the team, but what he does away from the game, with his open wallet when it comes to charities, Bob Kraft is more than a Businessman and more than an Owner of a football team, he is a great Humanitarian within our Society and his humbleness has affected each member of the New England Patriots Team. This alone is why this team is so good, for so long.

You are going to have a lot of so called fans and so called sports media members, who have become to hate on this Patriot Organization, let’s put it this way, the Patriots have become to football, like the Yankees have become to baseball, just simply because they win more than they lose, what I challenge to these haters is, if you want to win and be a winner, then step up and beat a winner. It’s not about the Patriots marching down the field and scoring, it’s even more about the other team to try to stop them from scoring, those that hate on a team cause they win too much, don’t really know the game, or even better they don’t really know how sports in general are played. You play the game to win, in football you play for a chance at the Lombardi trophy, this Patriot team worked hard all season for this chance at one more game for the Lombardi, they overcame a lot of adversity throughout the season and had a difficult schedule to get to this point, they earned this chance at yet another Lombardi, we as true fans need to just sit back and enjoy the ride, so this team of the Patriots can finish the journey they set out to do at the beginning of the season.

” Good luck to the New England Patriots and may you finish your journey you set out to do”

” You play the game to win, you play the game to be a Champion”

” sports is about winning and stopping another team from the goal of winning”

” You can’t learn to win gracefully, without first losing gracefully”

God Bless Martin Luther King and make his dream reality.

Martin Luther King was a “man”, that took to the streets for the equality of all as Humans, that walk this Earth together.

You notice that I used the word man? Reason being is, God see’s us all as a Human being with feelings and emotions, it is us the people that see each other with a different color of skin, it is us as people that look at each other as different, we as people are what is wrong not just within our community, but within our entire society as well, God gives us all the tools to do this journey the right way, he also never leaves us to fend for ourselves, we the people are the ones that chose not to acknowledge God within us, which leads to all the crap we see today within our society, Martin Luther King was trying to give us a message, we are all not seeing this message cause quite simply we think of ourselves as better than each other, the message was that we are all unique to each other and very similar as Human Beings, that walk a journey through life, just as God saw each of us when he created all of Mankind.

Just as we come to recognize yet another Martin Luther King day, remembering his journey of which he took to the streets, in order for us to come together without looking at each other as different and that we all have feelings and emotions, this day is set aside for all of us to remember not just a Man, but a Man with a message to help bring us all together, regardless of who you are, or what denomination you are as well, we all want to use this word of “Racism”, this word doesn’t exist in the eyes of God, it is only a made up word by we the people, who walk our paths along our journey of life, this word of “Racism” has kept us from seeing the true message of Martin Luther King and becoming someone we are not, there are plenty of ways out there that will help bring us together, like Martin Luther King tried to do, we as People have to truly see the message and truly believe in the Lord God, have complete faith in him as well as within ourselves, so we can see the good in everything, instead of only seeing the negative.

Sports is one of those things that brings us together, those of us that play a sport know that, when we come together as one and pull each of our strengths together, there is no end to what we can accomplish, the rest of us that are fans, still come together as we watch within a stadium, to root for our favorite team, while we are rooting for our team, this is heard from the team and helps them to come together even more so, which makes them even stronger as a team, there are Individual based sports also, you may see one person competing, like in the sport of Golf or Bowling, but what we don’t see is the team behind the scenes, helping the Individual to become better and stronger, it is never about “I”, as it always takes a team to be better and stronger in all we do as people, sport’s when looked at in the right way, will always bring us together no matter where you are in life, it is when we look at sports the wrong way, like the betting part of sports, that forces us to become something we truly are not, it brings out the hatred of not just ourselves, it also stops us from truly seeing sports as it should be seen, when we see all the ugly crap in the news, like these groups of Individuals by the name of ISIS or the Taliban, they want us to see them as a team, wrong all they are is a group of Individuals that bring out the hatred in all of us and try to get us to fear everything around us,  these Individuals have suppressed all their true feelings and emotions so deep within themselves, that it is like they don’t exist so they can move forward with no remorse of anything they do, the true message of Martin Luther King is for us to see each other as unique to each other, the fact that we are all similar in the eyes of God and we all walk our paths along a journey of life, sports when looked at in the right way, can also help us to see each other in a unique way, by bringing us together and use our Individual strengths, so we within this society can be stronger and better moving forward along our paths of our journey of life, which will help us accomplish anything that may come across our paths.

” Martin Luther King had not just a dream, but a message for all of us to each other, to see each other as unique to each other”

” sports like Martin Luther King, when seen the right way can bring us all together, to be stronger and better along our journey of life”

” Life is what you make of it, the hatred makes all our lives harder, as to love one another is so much easier”
