There is no ” I” in Team……..

To be a Champion in any team sport, comes down to the fact that, it’s not about one or two guys, it is totally a team effort and the Boston Bruins have proved that with the great season they are having. On the verge of yet another Stanley cup victory and the way they as a team rebounded from a lack luster performance in game two, they go two games to one in game three, in the best of a seven game series. Game three wasn’t just a win for the Bruins, they did so in the house of the St. Louis blues and in a dominating way, final score was seven to two, while going four for four on the power play also. This team has a good mix of veteran players, as well as great young talent, with a coach that has his finger on the pulse of each game. Chemistry is another part of being a true champion, it is how you are respected by your teammates, knowing your teammates so you can move as one on the ice with pin point passing, as you gain control of the puck away from the other team. The team whether on the ice or off the ice, has to bond together and be ready to battle for each other, like being a family, with the coaches being the parents of the family. These Boston Bruins are a special group, that have come together in harmony, as they put aside the ego’s to work hard at achieving the most prestigious trophy in all of sports…………….. Lord’s Stanley cup.

The Bruins might of dominated in last nights game three match up, but let’s not forget the St. Louis Blues, this team is built very similar to the Bruins, I am sure game four these Blues will be ready to battle once again, the Bruins will have to be ready for the fight and respond as they did in game three. To get this far and be the last two teams standing within the league, with a chance of being the champions of the hockey world, says a lot of both these teams, now with these Bruins being two wins away from the coveted prize, is no time to become comfortable, as the last two wins are just as hard as the last fourteen. For those true fans of the game of hockey, you have basically two seasons in one and we the fans are blessed with such a great game, now through the years the game has had some changes to it, like being a much faster game then years before, but the basics of the game stay in tact, like the first season being the regular season and the second season being the playoffs. With the playoffs there is a slogan we call ” Mission sixteen”, basically we call it that because it takes sixteen wins to win the playoffs and become the keeper of Lord’s Stanley’s cup.

My earliest memory of these Bruins was also against the St. Louis Blues, with the now famous greatest player to ever lace up the skates………… He is Bobby Orr and with an assist from Derek Sanderson, the rest is history with Bobby flying through the air in front of the goalie, for the goal and the winner of Lord’s Stanley’s cup. The Boston Bruins have a rich history and being one of the six original teams within the National Hockey League, not too mention some of the great hockey talent to wear the spoke “B” on their chest, is the reason why I myself Bleed black and gold. With two more wins this special team of the Boston Bruins can cement their names within the rich history of the organization.

Like Tom Brady has become the G. O. A. T. of the football world, we here in the city of Boston has witnessed two G. O. A. T’s of their sports, with Tom Brady and Bobby Orr. There is a lot of sports history here in the city of Boston and with the Bruins on the brink of winning a championship, along with the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots all in the same season, which hasn’t been done since the season of 1935/1936, truly gives this city of Boston the title of ” Titletown U. S. A.”.

I love the game of hockey, played the game when I was younger and with my favorite team so deep in the playoffs, like two wins away from winning Lord’s Stanley’s cup deep, it is very exciting right now, with all eyes on this special team. A team that has battled adversity all season, a team that has bonded together more than a team, they have bonded like a family on and off the ice and has been fun too watch this bonding all season. This team has been resilient all season and watching them in game two and game three, proves just how resilient they are, with an ugly performance in two, and a great performance in three. Would love to see this team finish mission sixteen, as not just for the reward for the players on a great season, but for the third time in the same season, the city of Boston can cue the Duck boats once again, for this type of celebration will never get old, especially with my favorite team.

” In team sports there is never an I, as it takes the whole team to work as one and become a true champion”

” The Stanley cup is the most prestigious and hardest trophy to win of all the sports, which makes hockey the coolest game on ice”

” To be a G. O. A. T. of your sport means that you are the Greatest Of All Time”

” Mission 16 in the game of hockey starts with the playoffs as you are on a mission to win 16 more games to be a true champion of the sport you play and love”

The Power trip, that’s just a game.

Within every Government today throughout this Society, you have these Elected Officials that will stop at nothing, to gather the votes needed, so they can have this “Power Trip”, that does nothing but cushion their wallets, as they totally forget of who put them there in the first place.

We the People of this Society with our hard earned Tax dollars, are what controls the Government, but these Elected Officials forget that and totally think that the Government wouldn’t survive without their ideas. These men and woman within the Government will want the People to think they are on their side, but it is what goes on behind the closed doors, that truly gives these Officials their power trip and determines just how the game is played. These groups known as the Special Interest Groups simply buy each Candidate with very high prices of money just to vote a certain way, so their Organization can get all the benefits, over all the Ordinary Folk who drive this Government with their Tax dollars.

Then there is the size of the Government, with Committees made to support Committees……. do we really need all these Committees? Yes Government has grown two fold over the years and maybe it is time to downsize, like a Corporate Company does from time to time, to help in balancing their budget, reduce spending, so they can reduce their debt, which helps in increasing the profit margin. When the debt is reduced greatly with the profits going up, then you can reward the Tax paying Folk, with a nice Tax break, or even putting some tax cuts in place for the future of all. This should be the ” Common Sense” approach, but with all the Greed going on within our Elected Officials, they have lost touch with Common Sense and also, they have become disconnected from everything that is real around them.

You also have the two Party rule with the Democrats and the Republicans, these two Parties are controlled by the Establishments in power, ” The Establishment” is nothing more than Individuals with huge Ego’s, that want all the power and money and will treat all others as their Puppets just to get what they want. Just maybe our Government isn’t really controlled by who we vote for and put into office? Maybe it’s the Ego driven Establishment that really drives what goes on within our Government? The time is now for each of us as Individuals to step up to the plate and vote smarter, to put the power back in the hands of who really drives this Country and who makes this Country great, that being the hard working People that pay their taxes into the Governments, either being the State for which they live and the Federal of this great Country, the United States of America.

The Individuals we vote into our Governments, go into office and play the Power game not just with the other Elected Officials, but with the People that put them there, they each want all the power to feed their Ego’s, then become disconnected with everything else around them. With the feeding of the Ego’s, then follows the Greed which is fed to them by the Special Interest Groups, these Groups are supported by the Corporations with an endless amount of money, to get whatever they want and the ordinary Taxpayer will never see this amount of money, as they walk their paths through this journey of life.

 

” The Washington power game is only a game that you can play if you have great amounts of money”

” The Establishment is merely a group of Individuals with huge Ego’s that treat all others as they are their Puppets”

” Are they really elected officials that work for the people, or do they say scripted things told by the establishment in order to be elected to office”

 

The Take down within reality…

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Along the paths of this journey through life, there are things that do need to be taken down, but when we try to take down each other, now this not only hurts the one that is being taken down, but in the end we all hurt, as the take down then affects us all.

This foot bridge within this picture gets taken down when one wants to cross the stream without getting wet, every Christmas we put up the decorations, then after we take them down to make room for the next holiday decorations, there are many things we put up, that over time we need to take down, to clean or repair from time to time, put up…take down…put up…. take down, seems pretty repetitive, but this is simple for us all as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

What is hurting not only ourselves but all those around us, is the taking down of each other, just so we ourselves can look more important than all that is around us. When one searches out another to try to disrupt their path of their journey, simply means one thing, that the one trying to do the take down, has more hidden issues, than they care to admit to themselves.

All the Drama within the NFL these days with Tom Brady and now Peyton Manning, simply proves more than ever that, when we see others around us having success, we will stop at nothing, to take them down and ruin all their credibility., simply because we are jealous of them. The fact is that we have become so lazy within our own little Worlds, that we don’t want to put in the hard work, be determined to achieve greatness, instead we will take down whoever that is around, just so we can seem at first glance, that we are just as important as the next, so we then become lazy for whatever that may cross our paths.

We have not only become jealous of the Sports Celebrity, we have become jealous of all who is around us and even more so, within this Society of today, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

 

” Life is hard enough to learn all of its lessons, we don’t have to make it harder, as we disrespect and take down one another”

” Part of the lesson we learn within our lives, is to treat each other with respect, without any taking down of anything that is around us”

” we all throughout Mankind need to be better at respecting each and only take down the picture frame to clean it”

” The take down isn’t some Wrestling event that everybody is all about me and acting like they are better than the rest”

Is the number Three, really just a number?

You ever here the old saying, ” everything happens in three’s”.

Throughout the history of Mankind, the number three has been telling us so much more, than what we have led on about the number. The Egyptians created what we know today as, the greatest engineering structure in the building of the Pyramids. These Pyramids have three sides like the shape the triangle, when Jesus came to us and walked his journey with us, he suffered, died and was buried for us, then on the third day he rose again and when Jesus was born, it was the three wise men and the three kings that came to his birth,  the number three when written on a piece of paper, is half the infinite symbol, or you can look at it as an infinite symbol that is open ended?

When you play the game of baseball, it takes three strikes and you are out, with three outs and the other team comes up to bat, not to mention a game of baseball is nine innings, which happens to be three sets of three. In the game of bowling it takes three strikes for a turkey and four turkeys, or four sets of three, to achieve a perfect game.

The number three is a lot more than just a number, maybe we should look at the origin of this number, so it won’t be so mysterious to us, or maybe the whole number system was created around this number three? The basis of trigonometry and to figure out answers, is based on the right angle and what is the right angle a part of? A triangle which is also three sided, plus there are three right angles inside a triangle.

Throughout the history of Mankind there have been many Scientists like Einstein, just maybe these Individuals have figured out the mystery behind the number three? Just that at the time of these Scientists, their notes became lost, or maybe they never wrote anything down, so nobody else would take credit for their inventions. Just maybe the mystery of the number three, goes even deeper than we as Humans, could possibly even imagine.

We throughout Mankind might look at the number three as just a number, but if you really look deeply into the history of Mankind and see that everything has evolved around the number three, just maybe we could understand better of our existence here on Earth? Just maybe we could understand better of ourselves as Humans and the true reason, why we were created here on Earth? God created everything around us including us for a reason, his creations serves a purpose and just maybe, the number three is the key to finding this purpose, so we all can be better and stronger moving forward, just maybe if we find this key to the number three, we can all better understand and love ourselves better, so we than can better understand and love each other, as we all walk our paths along our journeys of life in peace.

” what really is behind the mystery of the number three”

” everything happens in life around the number three, is it just a number, or does this number go deeper than we truly know”

” the number three may be a number, but what does this number really tell us”
