The Thrill of Victory……or the Agony of Defeat

IMG_20150104_124946

To honor the late Stuart Scott and to pray for all those who suffer this dreaded disease, plus with Breast cancer awareness this month, I thought this great quote could  rise once again. Stuart worked for the sports station ESPN for a long time, before this dreaded disease, finally took him from us. This quote by him was said during the yearly Espy awards, which he was honored with the lifetime achievement award. What makes this quote so great is, the fact you can tweak a few words and the quote takes on a whole new meaning.

Take out the first line and replace it with, ” To win playing the sport for which you love”, now you have a quote that will always live throughout the test of time, There are a lot of good quotes out there, what makes a quote great is, the tweaking of a word or two, giving the quote a whole new meaning, to inspire us as long as we walk a path through this journey of life.

Nobody ever wants to go through the Agony of defeat, but in able to experience the thrill of victory, you first have to be able to lose correctly, then you can respect the win, with a feeling of  pride.  True competition is missing within the World of sports today, it has been replaced with the feeling of ” I play for me so I can be rich” Yes sports today has become ” the world of Greed”, as the loyalty for players sticking with one team, just isn’t there anymore, then you have the owner’s of the teams dishing out big bucks to bring in certain players with good talent, so they can win Championships. True winning of Championships goes a lot deeper than buying a team, true winning of Championships gives you a feeling that is second to none, when it comes to having pride at what you do and when you learn to lose correctly, you then respect the winning, all day everyday.

With all the Hatred and the Ugliness that has consumed us all today, maybe a little theory here. that could be quite possibly the culprit of all the negativity? Sports is supposed to unite us as one, so we can be a Champion at whatever we want to do, but instead of uniting us, it is dividing us, with all the greed there is to be had, for playing a simple game, of whatever sport you chose to play. Then when you win multiple Championships, now others become jealous and will hate, just because you win all the time, now when you play a sport you love and you become great at it, others then get jealous and whine at every chance they get.  Is this fair treatment of each other? Absolutely not, Although if you want to try to be the best you can at whatever sport you play, then work hard, in becoming the best you can within the sport you love.

There is only one player today that plays his sport for the love of the game, has true loyalty for the team of which he plays for and isn’t in it just to get a fat pay check, Tom Brady is that player, he has only played for one team and brought that team five championships. so instead of other teams trying to dethrone the champs, they then take the easy way out and drive a wedge of hatred into the sport, which then divides further all who play the sport.

Sports when played the right way, brings us all together in Unity, players who play a sport for the love of the game, instead of the fat paycheck, then become role models to the young that watch them and then, try very hard to be like their role models, so they also can play a sport for which they love.

 

” The agony of defeat is what gives you the good feeling of the thrill of victory”

” Some quotes are a dime a dozen, but a great quote will always be priceless”

” Play a sport for the love of the game and unite all that are around you, instead of being consumed by greed and dividing the sport you play”

” Sports is supposed to be called the great unifier, but instead they are known as the great divider with all the hate and the ugliness”

united we stand………..Divided we fall

Such a beautiful bird on so many levels, this is the American Bald Eagle, a symbol of this great country of America. A big powerful bird that flies through the sky so free and with the greatest of ease. As beautiful as this bird is, we in this Society are part of the beauty this bird holds, right now we are a broken Society in need of a major fix, we are so divided in this country, we clearly can not come together for the good of all who walk their path of this journey through life, within this great country of America.

In order for us all to come together it all starts with the so called leaders, who we the people have elected to lead us. These Individuals are so consumed with themselves, they clearly can not see clearly enough to come together, for the good of all the people within this country. The issue of healthcare for all needs so badly to be done for the people, but yet our elected officials can not come together, because they are letting not only their unclear views get in the way, but they are letting the special interest groups control everything for which they are.  The American people voted you in to do a job, it is time you live up to what the American people want and ” do your job”. If we the people did our jobs as you did, then we would be fired from our jobs, what makes you any different then we are?

Then there is the so called Media that right now are a big part of the ugliness that surrounds us today, these Individuals I can’t even call a Journalist anymore, cause they can not even write the truth anymore. These Individuals are so consumed with their drama ridden agendas, they to can not do their jobs properly anymore, they are more concerned with the ratings and putting greed into their pockets, they have forgotten the simplicity of putting two words together to make sense, let alone trying to bring together we the people in unity, throughout this great country. Now with social media, there are so many avenues for the media, but yet there is no one that knows how to drive properly on these avenues. to even try to make sense, let alone put together words to make sense with. Don’t get me wrong there are still some great Writers out there, just that they have become hidden within all the fake Writers, who want nothing, but rob us all of our hard earned money.

I get the fact of the idea behind the 1st Amendment, I truly believe we all need a voice and to get our feelings out, to help us heal when we need be, but to do so in a way, that does nothing but shove your opinions down the throats of the rest of us………… that is not the way the 1st Amendment is supposed to work. We all have a right to this Amendment, not just a chosen few, which is the reason why we so badly,  need to get back to truly respecting one another and doing so from the heart, not just superficially or hiding from behind your technology device.

What happened yesterday within the National Football League was nothing but  disrespect in every way……… okay there was some good to it, but the bad so much out weighed the good and showed without a doubt, that we are a broken society, in need of a fix. The biggest thing of this that we need to address is, these players are getting paid huge amounts of money to play a game, but yet they chose to disrespect a symbol that many have died fighting for, so they can make their huge amounts of money and buy many things, that the ordinary hard working American can not afford. The game you play is on a stage, that these ordinary people buy a ticket to watch, you as a player are on that stage to perform for us, not to disrespect a symbol that we all are suppose to respect, showing pride and thanks to the many brave men and woman that have died fighting for. The first Amendment helps us all with a voice, to help us bring out our feelings to heal, not too disrespect, so we all can be better and stronger, as we all move forward along our paths of this journey through life.

 

” When we truly stand united we are at our strongest, when we are divided we are at our weakest”

” The first amendment is for us all to have a voice, to get out our true feelings and to heal moving forward”

” We need to be smarter, show more love and empathy of each other, to end all this hate and ugliness of today”

” The American Bald Eagle is a great symbol for us here in America, it shows freedom and strength without all the drama we the people have shown”

 

Strong powerful leadership

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The American Bald Eagle is a big, strong and powerful bird that rules the sky, this bird isn’t our symbol because it is weak, this bird is our symbol, cause it is a true symbol for those of which it represents.  I love this picture on so many levels, but the biggest thing is, just how majestic this bird is, not too mention of how cool this picture is of the Eagle watching out for all that is below.

President Donald Trump last night with his speech, showed just what a true Leader is all about, someone that is not afraid to stand his ground for all who he serves, someone that knows how to delegate and get the job done. Someone who is not afraid to stand up to a Bully or a Terrorist and someone who is smart enough to give our armed service men and woman, the tools and resources needed, so they can do their jobs correctly. You want to end all the ugliness that is around us all today, it starts with a true Leader, that knows how to lead and has all our best interests in mind with his actions.

You want an example of failed Leadership, you don’t have to look any further, then the failed Leadership of the National Football League, here is a guy by the name of Roger Goodell. This guy collects a handsome salary, but yet lacks the skills needed to lead an organization. Right now in the NFL you have player’s that will refuse to stand to the National Anthem? Really!!! These players are getting paid ridiculous amounts of money playing a game. These players are blessed with a talent and the ability to play a sport that they love, but yet they are so dumb when they use their sport, to highlight their platform. There is a time and a place for everything, just that a sporting event is no place to protest against the music of your country, especially when your getting paid big money within that Country you are playing in. I am aware of this thing called ” freedom of speech”, but when your playing a sport you love and for big money as well, not too mention looked up to as a role model to guide the young and steer them in the right direction, you have to pick your battles wisely and do your protests in other venues. Now if the NFL had a true Leader, just maybe these Individuals who refuse to stand for the National Anthem of a Country, who many have died, just so they can get paid big money to play a sport which they love, will no longer get to play their sport. It’s a respect thing and if you want others to respect you, then you need to respect all that is around you. Just maybe the Coaches of these teams should stand up to these Individuals and simply not let them play and have them become a bench warmer, for those who show respect for the National Anthem of the country for which they play.

President Donald Trump is quickly becoming one of the best Presidents of my lifetime. He is someone that does what he says and says what he means. President Trump is a Business man yes………. but to be as successful as he has been, you not only have to be smart, you have to be able to be a great leader, that can adapt to any situation, as well as know how to delegate to those around you, so you can focus on what you need to focus on, then you can walk your path of this journey through life, to be better and stronger moving forward.

 

” Some may be born to be a leader, but a true leader is never born”

” The American Bald Eagle……. So majestic but yet so powerful, a great symbol for America showing strength and freedom, while soaring the skies so graceful”

” Failed leadership will never work, as it will only compound the issues and bring out the ugliness instead of beauty”

” To be respected you first need to respect moving forward throughout this journey”

 

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”

 

Greatness Personified………

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” Greatness is within us all, but unfortunately only a few achieve true greatness”

 

Last nights Superbowl was an Epic event on so many levels, not too mention being one of the best Super bowls of my lifetime so far. Okay it is true I am a New England Patriot fan,  it is also true that I like many other true fans have gone through many seasons, with our beloved Pats only winning one game a year, so it is safe to say that, I am not the only one enjoying the ride for the last 17 seasons. With all the Hater’s hating on this team only shows what greatness brings and the New York Yankees back in their hay day, have also been through what the Patriots are going through now, which is where the nickname the ” Evil Empire” came from. What I say to all the Hater’s out there is, ” if you truly want to be a Champion, than step up to the plate and beat a true Champion”, with Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons almost did just that.

Tom Brady and Bill Belichek just solidified their greatness last night with this great come back win, some may say that the Falcons choked, but to the real football fan, this game was won a team that never gave up, no matter of how big the odds were as this game moved forward. This game was won by a team that never lost faith in their selves and their teammates, which kept hope alive for each and every one of them, when there is faith, you will always have hope and with these two, the confidence runs high throughout the entire team. Plus with the slogan of ” do your job”, the task at hand never really got too big for them to handle.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all also go through the good as well as the bad, with what I learned of Tom Brady’s Mom last night, I couldn’t stop my eyes from watering and to think she was at her first game watching her son……. the tears filled up my eyes and my heart became warm with love. with all the chemo she has been through, she was strong enough to go watch her son in person, which made this story so much bigger than the game of football itself. Tom Brady is more than just a football Quarterback, he is a Human, walking a path through this journey of life, just like all of us as well. The biggest difference between Tom Brady and most of us is, he never gives up, he never loses faith in himself and with this faith, never loses hope that he can achieve Greatness, plus as a Human and with all his Mom has been through, Tom Brady stays focused on the prize and the true prize isn’t each Championship ring he receives, the true prize is each chance he gets to spend good quality time with his Mom at her time of need. This was the story within the game, this is the story that drives Tom Brady to Greatness, this is a story and a message to the rest of us that, we to can achieve the same Greatness if we want it bad enough, we just have to stay focused on the true prize and not the prize surrounded by drama or false reality. We all walk a path through this journey of life and when we do it correctly, when we stay focused on the true prize and when we never give up, never lose faith, which brings us all the hope we need to move forward better and stronger, so we all can share our love within, with each other, as we then walk this journey in peace and happiness.

 

” True greatness is within us all, we just have to focus and never give up, so the greatness will shine over us all”

” Last nights Super bowl game was beyond a great game when you look deeply into the game”

” With Faith there will always be Hope and when you have them both, the confidence will drive you to never give up no matter of the odds”

 

 

The sun shines over the City of Chicago

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

With the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series last night and being seventy one years since they have even been on the big stage, plus not winning it for one hundred and eight years, this win is bigger than even the sport of baseball itself.

They say it was the curse of the Goat? I understand the whole story of a person bringing their pet Goat to the games, then being told not to bring the Goat anymore, but seriously, you think a Goat had to do with a team not winning a Championship in over a century? Same thing with the Great Babe Ruth and the trade that had him leaving the Boston Red Sox, to the New York Yankees, then the Red Sox not winning a World Series in Eighty six years? We all can believe what we want to, as we are all unique to each other with our own minds, but to make an excuse over a curse for not winning a Championship, I think we need look deeply into what we see, instead of making an excuse for everything around us.

The Fans of the Chicago Cubs is what this win is all about, as it was the Fans that were caught between the team and the Ownership of the team and being being deprived of what other teams and their Fans have accomplished. It is the Fan that shows up. pays a fee, so they can watch their team win, it is the Fan that roots very loudly for their favorite players of that team, but when the Owner’s don’t pay for the right players (for which the fan pays for), now the Fan has no one to root for. Yes your going to have those die hard Fans that no matter what, will still pay and root for a team, even if they don’t truly know of who they are rooting for. Instead you have the Owner’s becoming more greedy and taking advantage of the die hard Fan, just to line their pockets with more money, so they can live their plush exotic lifestyles.  When you don’t spend the money wisely and get the right player’s for the team and for the Fans who have been loyal to you, you will be the next Chicago Cubs or the Boston Red Sox.

When you want to model yourself after a good Owner, you need to look no further than Bob Kraft of the New England Patriots. He was a Fan of the team before he was an Owner and when he became Owner, he then put the best Management around him to build a great team. then through the Management they went out and got the right players that not only fit the Patriot way, but that would gel together and give the Fans what they have paid for, as they spend a lot of money to enjoy a game on any given Sunday. Now with the Patriots and the last fifteen years, you can clearly see what building a great team will do, as they win more than they lose and through winning, makes it fun to not only play the game, but makes it fun to pay and watch the game as well. Now with the winning part, you will also gain some Hater’s that will try to bring you down with words, this is just that words……..That show nothing but hatred of their own team, cause their Owner’s don’t step up to the plate and reward their Fans with a winning team.

Yes I do congratulate the Chicago Cubs and their player’s for winning the World series, but I congratulate their Fans even more, as now they can see what winning is all about and how winning and sports can affect a whole region for the better. Players like Jon Lester and David ross who are the older guys on the team and have won it all before, both came from the Red Sox, as did Theo Epstein the General Manager also, these are the guys that brought their experience and winning nature with them, as they infected the Fans around them throughout Chicago. Theo was the one that was brought in by the owner’s to give the Fans what they have needed for a long time and finally reward the Fans with this great victory and not just a victory, but a World Series Championship.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, some may get a chance to bask in the glory of this journey, while others simply just walk their path in the clouds of their judgments. Sports and our everyday lives when they come together in harmony, like last night in Chicago, helps us all have a look at the glory part of this journey and can help us all become better and stronger moving forward. True everything has to line up completely, but when they do it is the most beautiful part of this journey through life and is what makes us all walk with confidence, to be better and stronger along our paths throughout this journey.

 

” The Chicago Cubs have finally found success in the sport of baseball, as the Fans have finally been rewarded for their time and money spent”

” This team of the 2016 World series Champs the Cubs, will be forever enshrined in the history of the city of Chicago”

” They say winning cures all, but you can’t win without the right players around you”

” It takes a knack to get the right players for your team, as Theo Epstein and Bill Belichek have perfected that knack”

 

Love, Respect,Rewarding,Hospitality

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

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”

We all hurt in so many ways

May God bless little Martin Richard, who was taken from us at a young age in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings. Yes I have and will keep using this picture, simply because this sign Martin made at the age of eight years old before he was taken from us, has a suttle…… but strong message and a message that we are all guilty of. Martin may have been a young boy, but he acted much older than most within this Society,  as some among us would rather speak with violence, then speaking quietly when something angers or troubles them.

South Carolina another hot spot of violence and even before any of the real evidence or truth comes out, before the investigation begins, these people would rather take to the streets and create chaos among us? Really!!! This proves even more of just how broken this Society has become. Now before you take a knee and disrespect a flag that so many have fought and died for, think before you act which is something that we all take for granted in this Society.

Before you talk of any group of people being oppressed among us, seriously re think your thinking, You would think after this Country voted in the first Afro American as President, this ugliness would of become better? on the contrary it has become worse and is now affecting each and everyone within this great Country of America. You also have many Afro Americans in the public sector that have become very successful and we need to ask ourselves why? The only answer that matters is, they have worked very hard to achieve their success, while the majority are very lazy and refuse to do any kind of work at all, they think and expect that everybody should feel sorry for them, then give them whatever they want? When you work hard at achieving success is when respect will flow from you like water over the falls, with success comes happiness and peace and when you achieve any kind of success, the last thing you should worry about, is some punk coming and trying to take it from you, simply because he is too lazy to put the work in, so he to can have the same peace and happiness that success brings.

In order to end this ugliness around us, we first have to seriously look deep within ourselves, ask ourselves how can I change so others around me can change as well. True change will never happen over night, true change can and will bring some hurt to our lives, but when we achieve this true change, it is the most beautiful thing that we will ever do, as we all walk our paths through this journey of life. We don’t have to live with all this ugliness around us and I throw a lot of blame toward the Propaganda Media, as they do nothing but keep this drama front and center in all our lives just to keep earning their Millions, while the rest of us struggle to make ends meet. We can end this power that the Media has on us and all we have to do is, quite simply pay no attention to them and move forward with our own lives, move forward with our hard work so we to can have the success as others have had, stop dwelling on what was and move forward on our paths of this journey through life.

 

” Martin Richard may have been taken from us through a senseless tragedy, but his Spirit lives on through this sign he left for us all”

” We all hurt in so many different ways, violence is not the answer for any of us through this journey of life”

 

Oppression has no boundaries

Creek

” The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed”

 

*** Luke 4:18

 

” This stream flows along it’s path within it’s boundaries, as it shares all the land around it with all the other Vegetation”

 

*** BowlingChef***

 

Within this Society of today, the ones that are truly Oppressed move forward quietly as to not bring attention to themselves, yet there are others using a sport that they play as their platform and then disrespect a flag, that men and woman have fought hard to protect, so these Individuals can make their millions playing their sport, is this really a good way to voice your concerns? Our Military of the past and the present, have fought for our flag, so we can be free here to do what we want and travel wherever we want to go. These men and woman of the Military are made up of our Mother’s, Father’s, Brother’s and Sister’s, some never made it back home, others came home but never the same as they left to fight for the flag, then as they come home to re join Society with us, they become neglected and disrespected by the rest of us throughout this Society. These Veterans are the one true oppressed people of this Society, cause they worked hard so we can be free and safe in this Country, as the ones that think they are oppressed, don’t work and expect the rest of us to tale care of them, as they become even lazier throughout this Society.

There are many that are oppressed within this Society, but they work hard to get out of the oppression, so they can be as vibrant and happy like many others. The ones that bicker and complain become lazy and never work hard at doing anything of value in their lives, then they try to disrupt the lives of those around them, by doing stupid things and forcing their opinions on those around them. Oppression is what you make of it and if your not willing to reach out, lend a helping hand to others at their time of need, then I blame we the people for letting this Oppression become bigger than it really needs to be.

There are some that cry they are oppressed, but do nothing to help themselves, they do nothing to get out of the oppression, then they rely on others to not help them out of the oppression, but to disrupt the lives of others around them. ” God helps those who help themselves”, so when there is no hope of any help, only means you have lost the faith in yourself as well as in God also. Don’t rely on others to over step the boundaries in a Society, as it is like the stream and if the stream over stepped it’s boundaries, then all the Vegetation around it dies as it becomes flooded.

Before you take a knee in protest, really know what you are protesting, I understand that there is oppression going on around us but, this oppression has affect on a lot more than one kind of person in this Society, to take a knee before a game to not pay tribute to a flag of this Countries colors, to which many have fought and died, so we can be free and you can earn millions from the sport where you are taking the knee, this is not a good idea and shows that people need to re think the way to protest. By taking a knee you are doing nothing but showing disrespect of those who fought hard, died and came home not of the same person defending the flag, so we all can be free to be anything of which we truly want to be. Find another way in which to protest that won’t show any disrespect of anything or anyone around you, Let’s all be a little smarter with our actions, so we all can walk our paths in peace, while being truly happy throughout this journey of life.

 

” Oppression comes from relying heavily on others to work on our behalf, without we ourselves working hard to get out of the Oppression”

” oppression is what you make of it and with no faith there will be no hope of getting out of the Oppression”

” Many have died fighting for the red, white and blue so the rest of us can be free in this country, let’s not disrespect their spirit by taking a knee in it’s honor”

 

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”
