The Patriot Times

The football team the New England Patriots, are a franchise within the NFL that is a great story throughout all sports, for years before the current owner in Bob Kraft, this team had some great players that played wearing the logo of the Patriot, but unfortunately they didn’t make the playoffs all that often, then as things happen like throughout the history of the real Patriots that helped build America into the power house it is now,  the old owner in Billy Sullivan sold the team to Bob Kraft and now the rest is history before our eyes.

When Bob Kraft brought in Bill Parcells to build this team to a winning organization, he did just that even making the Superbowl, but unfortunately lost to the Green Bay Packers, then lightening struck, Parcells was let go and the Patriots hired Bill Belichek and the rest is still history before our eyes.

Bill Belichek has transformed these New England Patriots into a power house throughout the NFL and turned around the name of the team, back into what being a true Patriot really means, what he has done in the draft and with free agency goes without saying, some may not like a lot of what Belichek has done, but I question them and challenge them to build a better team than he has built, Bill has brought to this team a kind of swag that you don’t really see in a coach, his press conferences from a fan point of view are funny stuff, but from a sports media point of view…… let’s just say “we are on to the next game”, he has his way about him, but what he truly is from a football point of view……a Genius.

Then you have Tom Brady and his journey to where he is now, you simply can not write a script for a movie, any better then Tom’s career as a Quarterback in the NFL, drafted by the Patriots so far down off the radar, nobody really knew who he was and to take over for Drew Bledsoe the way he did, then never looking back and always looking into the future, to be better and stronger on his journey through football, this goes to show the character of Tom Brady, it also shows that he is very competitive and wants to win every game he steps onto the field, Tom Brady and Bill Belichek will be in the football hall of fame and beside each other as the best Quarterback/Coaching tandem in the history of the NFL, we here in New England are witnessing history before our eyes, so sit back and enjoy the ride, as we have become spoiled by their winning and one day it will all be very different.

Now with the New England Patriots about to play in their 4th straight Conference Championship, lets not forget where the Patriots used to be in the days of Billy Sullivan, then we can appreciate this title game even more so and hopefully see them earn a trip to yet another Superbowl, like Belichek always says ” one game at a time, one play at a time”, which happens to be so similar to how life is, ” one day at a time along our journey”, another thing the Patriots are doing this year and the theme of their season, ” just do your job” which means every player on the team has his own special quality that he brings to the team and when the whole team does what each of them do best, the whole team wins plus not to mention all the hard work in practice, which leads to good execution on game day, practice, moderation, not getting a head of yourself all these are the ways of the Patriots and they also speak loudly in our everyday lives as well, in a retro sort of speaking, if you look at sports in the right way, you can see that to be successful in life, it has very much the same qualities as being successful in what ever sport you may play or view, so as we get ready to watch yet another conference championship game by the New England Patriots, let us all wish them good luck and may they continue on the journey this season to the Superbowl and another Lombardi trophy for all to enjoy. OOPS!!!! one game at a time sorry……………..

” Sports when looked at with the right eyes, can inspire us in many ways”

” To stay on top like the Patriots, you have to have competitive juices flowing all the time, just the same as we in life have to compete with each other at our jobs daily”

” The New England Patriots are to football, what the real Patriots were to our history here in America”

Early winter has sprung here in New England…….

early winter

Winter officially may not be here for about another three weeks, but Mother Nature has seemed to be preparing us for another run at this white stuff for another winter season, this is fine as you can’t totally predict what Mother will do and you can’t change the seasons, even though some may even try?

Winter is one of the four seasons, in order to get another crack at the summer season, you have to go through the winter season, some may say they don’t like winter and want it to go away, well if you don’t like it that bad, than go to a warmer climate and stop being so bitter of it, true the snow may inconvenience us, but it is only for a short time and if you take it in stride and moderation, than before you know it, summer will be back with us again.

We all walk a path along our journey of life, we all have to accept the bad to get to the good, when we do this it makes us not take for granted the good when it comes to us, the same goes for the seasons of the calendar year, we have to learn to accept the winter so we don’t take for granted the season of summer and we fully enjoy it when it is upon us, instead of feeling down and getting moody when it snows, let the snow get you upbeat while you go out and find ways to enjoy the beauty of the winter, yes I said beauty of winter, all the seasons have their own distinct beauty within them, much like we all as Humans that walk this Earth, after a nice fresh snowfall, it is a good time to go out and take some good pictures as this is when winter is so beautiful, even if your not a photography buff, it is a good hobby to learn for all seasons and especially the winter, as this will help your winter blues and keep you from going into hibernation, while all the rest of us pass you by. winter is like everything else as you have to look past what you don’t like, so you can see the true beauty deep within the core of what you are looking at.

Winter may be cold and have its moments like shoveling out after a storm, true that is a lot of work, but a little work should never stop you from truly enjoying what winter really is, the white snow that covers the ground, is God’s way of putting a blanket on the Earth, so as the season of spring comes to us, we see with our eyes Earth rejuvenating itself and becoming beautiful with new growth, like a new born baby to its new Mom and Dad, the seasons are part of our journey as we walk it, we just have to accept them all, to truly see the true beauty each one holds, like we all as Humans, walking our paths along our journey of life.

” let the seasons change and truly see the beauty each one offers us”

” the snow is a blanket to the Earth, like a new born baby is to the new Mom and Dad”

” Winter may be cold, so let the beauty warm your heart and body as you enjoy for a few months”
