We are all Patriots……

gillette

” True Patriots unite as one, there is no hatred to be found no matter who you are, or where you are from”.

 

Patriots may be a football team that play at this stadium known as Gillette, but we are all Patriots who walk a path, through this journey of life. I can remember a time when this same football team of the Patriots were only winning one or two games a year, man!!! What a different team they are now. True there is way too much hatred of this team, simply because they do nothing but win for the last fifteen years, it is pretty much a Dynasty that has been built by Robert Kraft the Owner, with the bringing in of Bill Belichek, so why can’t we just sit back and enjoy the ride? without bringing the unnecessary drama.

This team from year to year has had many different components, but the two common denominators have been Bill Belichek and Tom Brady. These two have pretty much re-written all the records and show no signs of slowing down, or calling it quits. So from someone who has struggled from year to year while saying, ” wait til next year” every year, it feels good to be proud of the team once again, as they truly are a great football team.

With all the success of the Patriots over the last fifteen years, you will have the Hater’s hating on this team simply because their team can’t beat the Patriots and the fans want the same success as the Patriot fans. The New York Yankees and the Montreal Canadians went through the same as the Patriots are going through now, only because they win more than they lose, what I say to all the Hater’s out there is, if you want to be a Champion, then step up to the plate and beat a Champion. Now not everybody can be a Champion, because as one team wins, there has to be another team that loses, this is fact and a fact we all have to better at excepting, so we can move forward better and stronger.

When Robert Kraft bought this team the New England Patriots,  this was the beginning of positive change not just to a football team, but to the Community that hosts this team. The Patriots are so good on so many levels, it would take all day to write about them all, but if those who hate on this team, would only set aside their hate and truly look at the team the Patriots, they could clearly see why they have become a great team and do what they need, so they to can accomplish the same success. There is way too much Hate within this Society and it goes a lot deeper than any sports team and their success, but if we can watch our favorite team, to cheer them on as they strive for success, then just maybe we can all unite and become one on the same team, as we all walk our paths through this journey of life, to become better and stronger with every step, then we all can share what it is like to be on the winning team throughout life.

 

” Winning should never be hated on, as it takes a lot of hard work and dedication”

” Hard work and plenty of practice are the key ingredients to anything you want to win at”

” We all want success but refuse the hard work and practice part, then we hate the ones that achieve the success with much hard work and practice”

” Don’t hate on a team just because they keep on winning, simply step up to the plate and beat the Champion to achieve the same success”

Love, Respect,Rewarding,Hospitality

We climb mountains like this, not just because they are there, or maybe simply to pass the time? We climb mountains like this because we Love the getting outside part, we Love the adventure part of the journey and we also Love what our Reward is, when we reach the Summit of the mountain. While Hiking our journey to the Summit, we quickly learn to Respect the mountain and the trail for which we climb, we Respect everything around us like the plant life and the animals that may cross our path. Then we come to realize all the Hospitality of all the other Hiker’s that we meet along the trail, with just a quick simple hello and have a great day, by an Individual that before then, you never knew existed as we walk our path through this journey of life.

I just attended an event which very much had these same traits like, Love, Respect, Reward and the Hospitality. This event was for a sport that I very much enjoy not just for the competitiveness but for the game, this sport is Ten Pin Bowling. Bowling to some may be just a night out, or maybe a game for which to pass the time, Bowling to me is the Social interaction with others, making Friends with others that if it weren’t for the game, maybe you would of never met these People? It is also the fun you have competing with other’s, now some Leagues may be more competitive than others, or maybe you are good enough to compete in some Tournaments? The sport of Bowling teaches us all that, even through the competitiveness, we can still get along and have fun together, playing a game that we all, Love, while we Respect the game and each other, earn many Rewards and accolades, While we simply have fun and share much Hospitality with each other.

Now with all the Crap we see around us today and what the liberal Bias Media would want us to believe so they can sell their print and make money on our account, there are still good people around us and we can still enjoy each others company, without the word Hate even being a thought in anybody’s mind. Even through the competitive part of the game, when the game is over you can still shake hands regardless of the out come. The Hospitality part of Bowling is very seldom talked about, but yet is the part of the game that makes it the best sport out there. The Love and Respect that is shared by each bowler, is the biggest reward within the sport of Bowling. Unlike other sports, when an Athlete reaches a certain point, they lose the Love and respect, the Hospitality becomes non existent and the rewards then never come, which then makes us very Bitter and Hostile toward each other.

This Love, Respect, Reward and Hospitality will never die, only we as the people of this Society and the actions we take, makes it very difficult to truly see the good of these traits, makes it very difficult to receive any kind of a reward, as the Hospitality and the kindness will never be shared by we the people, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

 

” Love is within us all and much easier to share with all those around us, the hate is learned from our surroundings and harder to spread among us”

” Respect is a trait that when we acknowledge and care for one another, then the feeling within us fills us with great warmth”

” Rewards comes from all our hard work, without the work there are no Rewards”

Hospitality quite simply comes from us being nice to each other, as we share the Love within us with each other”

Good decision/bad decision…Hmm!!!

story idea

The decision for Bill Belichek to kick away the ball at the start of overtime in last nights game, totally lies on him to do so and with his track record over the last fifteen years as the Coach of the New England Patriots, who are we to second guess his decision?

These pictures here are of two totally different paths, just like in life you also have different paths in sports to get to where you want to go. with the way the Offense played last night, compared to the way the defense played, clearly was part of the way Bill made his decision and all these theories we are hearing today, totally lie with the sports media, in trying to stir up as much drams as they can, so they can have a job to stir the drama with. Bill has brought four Championships here to new England over his tenure here, why should we stop trusting him now? Even Tom Brady came out and said the defense played better and he is the common denominator in all the different teams that Bill has coached here.

Talk about the media creating drama in sports, there was a report of Peyton Manning using HGH in the year 2011 after his neck surgery, which this report was later recanted when the reporter came out and said he was wrong, but now the seed of drama is planted and a very hard seed to dig up like the weeds in your green grass. Tom Brady came out in total defense of Peyton, as he is going through the same seed of drama with the deflate gate crap and can totally feel what Peyton is going through. This is, what is wrong with our Society of today, here you have two of the best Quarterbacks in the history of the NFL and there are some out there through jealousy, that will try to take them down, instead of sitting back and enjoying the show that they are putting on, year after year.

True we here in New England may not of liked the call to kick the ball away and pass up the chance to end the game with the offense scoring a touchdown like the Jets did, but when you sit back and review the game inside the game, you can see clearly why Bill made this decision, as the defense out played the offense in last nights game, it is just that it didn’t work out for the Patriots like in years past and with all the injuries to key players, shows that even the mighty Patriots fall Victim to the bug of an injury ridden season, like all other teams throughout the NFL.

With Bill Belichek and Tom Brady, the Patriots will always be in the talk of which teams will go to the Superbowl, but when key players around Tom fall to the injury bug, makes it that much harder to get there and that much harder a pill to swallow, for all the fans around New England to accept. The legacy of Bill and Tom here in New England is winning, but without all the key supporting players around them makes it that much harder to overcome adversity and keep the legacy of winning alive, I can say I was disappointed at the call also, but when I looked at the game inside the game, I clearly saw the reason why he made that call and totally respected Bill for making the call. #inbillwetrust Let us all here in New England always trust in Bill as his track record speaks for itself.

 

” just as in life, sports has different paths to follow to get to your true destination, hard work and determination shows you the true path to follow”

” Decisions are made everyday in life as well as sports, just that all the decisions made don’t always work in your favor”

” The New England Patriots with Bill and Tom will always be considered a favorite in the NFL, its the right supporting cast around them that keep them one of the favorites”

 

The road to a Championship

Forest

 

The road to any Championship within any sport you may play, are full of unknowns, trials and tribulation. Now I am a New England Patriot fan not just of long standing, but I am what is known as the hometown Homey, with that said…….. I have also lived through the toughest of times when these Patriots lost more than they win, now with these Patriots of the last fifteen years winning more than they lose, I have earned the success this team has given me.

Since Bill Belichek and Tom Brady took the reigns of this franchise, the New England Patriots have become one of the best teams within the history of the National Football League, not too mention the best Quarterback/Coach tandem as well. You had the Steeler’s of the 1970’s, the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s that were great dynasties of their time and right now it is the New England Patriots who have become that great dynasty. Unfortunately with success comes the hater’s and in today’s World, the haters are ten times worse than of any other time. You also had the New York Yankees throughout their winning days within Baseball and became the most hated team within their sport, it happens because when a team gets so dominant and beats regularly other teams, it’s the fans that bring out this hatred of the team that their team can not beat.

” a team can only be a Champion when they step up to the plate and beat a true Champion with regularity”

I get the fact that the fans want to play and pick these fantasy teams to compete with each other, but these fantasy games have completely ruined all sports and completely took away any integrity that these sports had.  ” Let the real players stand up and play the game they love to play”. These fantasy teams that the fans pick, are just that fantasy. They are not real teams and from what I see all the other owner’s throughout the NFL, want these fantasy teams to make it look like their teams are doing okay? Roger Goodell the Commissioner of the NFL, is in power from the board of directors of the league and who are these directors? All the owners of all 32 teams in the NFL. When it comes to the New England Patriots, all the other Owners are the ones that have hated on this team the most, simply because they have made their teams look completely silly throughout all that watch the NFL. What I say to these Owners is, time to step up to the plate and beat a real Champion (fair and square) that the Patriots have become, so your teams can have a share of what being a Champion truly feels like.

It is not about the Patriots laying down so other teams can catch up to the curve, it is all about the other teams of the NFL catching up to the Patriots on the field fair and square. These Patriots throughout their history in the NFL have seen times where they lose more than they win, they didn’t whine and cry like the teams of today, no!! They just stepped up to the plate and with much hard work, became one of the best Franchises in the history of the NFL, it’s time the other teams follow the path of these Patriots, so maybe one day they to can become a True Champion.

” A True Champion doesn’t just happen, first there comes dedication, hard work and perseverance”

” instead of whining and crying and creating hate of a team, step up to the plate to beat a true champion and become the champion”

” Hard work is what defines Tom Brady and the number one reason why he has been so good for so long”

 

” The keeping up with the Jones”…

Waterfall

 

Who are the Jones? And why do we need to keep up with them?

Who knows when or even why this saying has been around so long? All this saying does is turn each of us against each other and stops us from truly being who we really are. Just like the saying of ” having the American dream”, we all think we know what this is for example, big house, white picket fence, two cars with garages, wife/husband, children, wealth and our own piece of the pie. Unfortunately throughout this Society of today, this American dream has caused us to step on each others shoe shine, to the point no matter what we do, nothing shines around us anymore. We all have our issues and our struggles throughout this journey of life, we all want the American dream and keep up with the Jones part of the pie, but unfortunately we have all gone the wrong way and find ourselves exerting all our energy at swimming up the stream of the waterfall, instead of making it easy and simply flowing as the current down this stream within this picture.

It is okay for some good fun and competition between us, but when this good fun and competition turns to ugliness, like we see around us today, you think we need to truly change and look deeply into everything that is around us? Competition between two Sports Teams is part of the game and the magic word is “game”. We as Individuals who watch these teams, have taken this competition to an all new level, a level that has turned us all against each other, cause we don’t see it as a game anymore, we see the friendly competition between two Teams and have turned this competition into, an ugly competition that has forced us to walk our paths throughout this journey of life, without truly being who we really are.

We all have a purpose in life, we all set our goals so we can find what our purpose truly is. I understand we all have our issues and struggles along our paths, but when we don’t address and fix these issues, the struggles will never end and we will never find out what our true purpose really is. Life is a journey that we all walk along a path, the journey may be the same, as the path and the purpose are all different to each of us, not everybody has to keep up with the Jones to achieve true happiness, as well as not everybody will achieve the American dream for true happiness also, true happiness comes from each of us, addressing the issues and fixing them, so we all can find our purpose and walk our paths in peace, with true happiness along this journey of life.

 

” The journey through life may be the same, but the path and the purpose is much different to each one of us”

” The struggles and issues of life may have us swimming up stream into the waterfall, but addressing the issues and fixing the struggles will have us swim down stream, making our paths more peaceful with happiness”

” good competition between us is okay, but when it turns ugly is when we have to change the game, to make the competition fun again”

 

The Shepard has come home

     ” Sometimes within life as we walk our paths of our journey of life, we don’t realize til it’s too late, just how much we really have touched the lives of those around us”

” Come home my Shepard, you have gathered the Herd, now it’s time to relax and relish the feeling of what hard work really is”.

Throughout our lives as we walk this journey and more so in today’s Society, we want everything now, we want people to notice who we are and what we are doing, even before we have done anything, or became anything at all, We want so bad to be noticed, that we do anything and become someone we are truly not, just so others will notice us, even if its in the wrong way.

Jesus came to us and walked his journey with us, he did so in a quiet way and like the Shepard gathering the Herd, Jesus gathered his followers one by one. Jesus wasn’t out to win any rewards like we operate today, he just very quietly spread the words of his Father, the Lord God the creator of all Mankind.

Sport’s within our Society is very much like Jesus when he came and walked his journey with us. When you play sports the right way and for the right reasons, whatever sport you play will touch your heart as well as the hearts of many, just like Jesus touched the hearts of many throughout his journey. Lasts nights induction of Brett Favre to the hall of fame within lambeau field and the way that the 70,000+ fans greeted him, shows just how special sports can be within all our lives. There wasn’t a dry eye in the place even Brett was brought to tears as the entire stadium stood as one, to show their appreciation of their Quarterback of the team the Green bay Packers. Brett played a lot of years for this team, he played hard and gave his all to the team, he even brought a Championship back to the fans, so they can celebrate Brett’s hard work with him, last night brought all that hard work back front and center, to the thousands of fans in attendance. This is what sports can truly do within our Society, just like Jesus brought us together for good, Sports can unite us as well, so we all can walk our paths along this journey through life in peace and become stronger and better from one Society to another.

Respect is never just handed to us, we have to go out and earn the respect, by doing whatever we do in the right way, when we cheat to try to get the respect and when we think respect should just be given to us, true respect will never be awarded to us.  True respect takes a lot of hard work and dedication to whatever you do, without these two respect you will never have earned. Some of the sports players think that because they are playing for a lot of money, that we all should respect them always? I got news for you, true respect does not work that way. Real sports stars like Brett Favre, Ray Bourque, Bobby Orr, Bill Russell, or Micheal Jordon to name a few, received the respect for the sport they played after they retired, cause they were to busy working their tail off and giving 100% to the teams in which they played. Sports can and will be when done in the right way, a way to unite together large quantities of people to show true respect to each other, Jesus when he came to us didn’t ask to be respected by any of us, he earned that respect with his actions and his teachings to all of us. With this feeling of respect also comes the knowing that, you have become a Shepard to many, by bringing together many for the reason of good towards all and like the Shepard at the end of the day, now you to can relax truly, knowing that your job is done. There is no better feeling we will ever feel, than earning the respect of many, as we all walk our paths along our journey of life.

” Sports when played for the right reasons, will always unite many, but when done for the wrong reasons will bring great pain and hatred to all”

” The job of the Shepard wasn’t a job where glory was around you, but you did the job anyways going unannounced to those around you, but in the end you earned much respect from all those around you”
