we can not see through the crowded bushes clearly, when we let hatred control us.

           With all this hatred that is running throughout this Society, none of us can see clearly what is in front of us, on our paths of our journey through life. This hatred doesn’t come from who we are as Humans within Mankind, this hatred comes from laziness and the fact that some just simply want to create big drama, in order to get the rest of us to fall to their level.

Hatred doesn’t seem as big, like when it runs through the sports world, only because we get way too consumed with our favorite teams. When sports is played in the right way and for the right reasons, it is what makes us all stronger and better throughout our journey of life. Sports teaches us to be competitive, and when we practice at something, we can become great at what ever we practice, it also teaches us to work together as a team, so we can become a champion at whatever we want to be a champion of? When you have a team of Individuals and they play together and for each other, they then put their strengths together and overcome any team they face, no matter how talented that team may be? The 2004 Boston Red Sox is a perfect example of this pulling together as a team, they were not the favorite or the most talented team in the playoffs that year, but what they did have was, a group of Individuals that bonded together, put together all their own strengths, in order to become one strong team, then they won the Championship that year. When we throughout this Society pull together as one, walk our paths through this journey of life, we to can become a great Society and be a champion, of which future Societies will look to follow, so they to can be a great Society and through all this, hatred will not even enter into our lives.

Unfortunately in today’s world of sports, it is being played for all the wrong reasons and in the wrong way, as today the players are all about ” show me the money”, instead of ” i want to win and be a champion”,  Whenever there are some dominant teams out there and there have been a few throughout all the sports, you will always have this hatred for those teams, because the fans and the other teams that keep losing to them, then form this hatred of them so strong, that they then can not see clearly through the forest moving forward of their journey of life. With all the teams that have been hated on throughout the history of sports, these New England Patriots have become the most hated team of them all. Why? Simply because they win more than they lose and have won more Championships than all of the most recent teams. The last fifteen years this team has dominated the world of football, but what I say to all the haters out there is, ” you want to be a champion, than step up to the plate and beat a Champion”. When you hate on a certain team only shows that, you have given up and become too lazy, which makes it that much harder in order to win at anything, let alone be a champion of anything. I remember the times before this fifteen year run these Patriots are on, these were times of hardship and feelings of low confidence, as they have only made it to the Superbowl twice before this last fifteen years and have been blown out both times. The team went through many changes and the fans didn’t become filled with great hatred, as we truly believed that one day the team and it’s fans would become the champion of the football world.

When we give in to this laziness it will keep us from stepping up to the plate and defeating a champion, so we can also become a champion, which will then have us hating on everything and anything that may come before us, as we walk our paths of our journey through life. It is this hatred that has us move forward through the forest, without truly seeing what is clearly in front of us, so we than can practice and be ready for whatever that may cross our paths.

” hatred is only something we as Individuals make up, when we become lazy and create big drama around us”

” sports when played for the right reasons and in the right way, is what helps us become stronger and better along our paths of our journey through life”

” sports should never be about the money for any player, as you will never receive any money if you first don’t practice to become great, at whatever sport you play”

Look beyond the Horizon, before you cast any doubt

         Today September 11, 2015, is a remembrance of something that we have lost total meaning of what it is. Fourteen years ago was a tragedy that took many lives here in America, with a lot of others being injured and still feel the affects of that day. 9/11/2001 was a day we all need to remember, so we can never forget our fellow Citizens who have fallen,   never forget that through hate, will bring sorrow to each of our lives, whether we want it or not,

When 9/11/2001 happened we all were saddened at the loss of so many, then became the Unity of which we all joined together as one, now fourteen years later, that unity has been forgotten and we all have wandered back into this world of hate. We hate on everything around us, cause it is the easy way out of any situation, to which we all are victims of being lazy within our lives. Hate isn’t the answer for anything, as it only makes worse any situation that has crossed our paths of our journey through life.

When 9/11/2001 happened there was a team within football called the New England Patriots, these Patriots have never won a Superbowl and throughout my life I suffered with many a fans, the same quote year after year ” wait til next year”. It was like it was supposed to happen, maybe Destiny? That this team called the Patriots would win the Superbowl that year for the first in Franchise history. When the Patriots won the Superbowl and with their magical name, the whole Country stood as one in unity and now fourteen years later, this hatred has returned throughout our Society, with it being even stronger throughout Patriot Nation.

The New England Patriots did nothing to breed this hatred toward them, except maybe they have won more than they have lost? Bill Belichek and Tom Brady have been the Coach and Quarterback throughout this incredible run of the Patriots, to which we here throughout Patriot Nation have really gotten used to the word “winning”. Just like the baseball team the Yankee’s when they used to win all the time, the Patriots are going through this same feeling of hatred and it is all because, people would rather take the easy road of hate, instead of stepping up to the plate and beating the winner, so they to can be a winner.

Spy gate, deflate gate, these are all driven by hate, towards one team called the New England Patriots, why? Simply because they win more than they lose. Spy gate should never of happened because all other Coaches have done it throughout the history of the NFL and if they say other wise, than they are lying to your face. Deflate gate? This was so over blown it is not even funny anymore, all in the name of hate, because the rest are too lazy to step up to the plate and beat the winners, so they to can be a winner. It is not for the New England Patriots to lay down for the the other teams throughout the NFL, it is for all their opponents they play, to step up to the plate and beat them, so they to can be a winner in the NFL.

The further we become removed of the day 9/11/2001, the further we slip into this world of hate. Simply because we are to lazy to do anything different, Sports when played correctly is suppose to help us all be stronger throughout our lives, team sports shows us that with unity any championship is possible and being a winner will come to all of that team. Without this unity you than have chaos and a hatred throughout the team, which then shows the rest of Society, that it is okay to hate on everything around you, instead of stepping up to the plate, becoming one in unity and truly being a winner of the sport you play, or even being a winner in life, as you walk your path throughout this journey of life.

” 9/11/2001 should be a date etched within our minds forever, so we will never forget this terrible tragedy”

” hate is never an answer for anything, as it only breeds chaos and much pain throughout all our lives”

” when we hate all we are doing is, taking the easy way out of any situation, without hate we become stronger and better standing in unity as one”

The biggest Scandel of my lifetime of any sport………..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA        “The fire is burning within the entire National Football League and with the way the league is handling the situation of so called under inflated footballs, then mishandling other business that is far worse than this, this fire is quickly turning into a roaring blaze, with no way to put it out”.

Let’s get this out of the way first, Hockey is my #1 sport, with the Boston Bruins being my favorite team, football is #2 on my list, with the New England Patriots being my favorite team and yes I have suffered through all the years before Belichek/Brady even came into the picture. True the Patriots are my favorite team, but I am such a sports fanatic, that I can see past the crap and look at all angles equally, unlike all the Drama Queens within all the Sports media. Yes I may struggle and not want to believe when a favorite player does something wrong, but if all the true facts were to come out against this player, okay I may have a hard time to accept the facts, but I would accept them and move on. Now in the case of Tom Brady and the way the NFL has dealt with this, then listening to Bob Kraft speak very angrily to the media? I have no choice but to go from 100% to 120% behind Tom Brady with my support.

I get the fact that the NFL is a business, but when the business becomes bigger than the sport itself, now you have a huge problem that needs to be fixed. How can you basically convict someone when you have no concrete evidence, which is what has been done to Tom Brady, Roger Goodell says in his report that Brady destroyed his phone? Brady comes out and says he did not destroy anything, that his samsung phone broke and he replaced it with a new Iphone? Then went to his carrier to try to retrieve the texts, but could not? I believe Tom on this as his play on and off the field through his tenure with the New England Patriots has proven that he is a straight up person. Tom Brady works very hard to be the best Quarterback for himself and the team he plays for, he is always the first to practice and the one who works the hardest, so hard that he expects perfection of himself and when that perfection is not there, he gets pissed at himself first before anything else.

Now let’s talk hypothetically, if you work for a Corporation and they pay for you to have a cellphone and want to monitor your calls and texts, that is completely fair and within the rights of the Corporation. Now you have a personal cell phone and your Company wants you to hand over that phone, you are within your rights not to, even if the company responds by disciplining you in some way shape or form? But and this is a big “BUT”, you are within your rights to fight them, because the word “personal” is just that…………. Personal. This is exactly what is going on between Tom Brady and the National Football League, the way the league has handled this and all other situations within the league, to me is suspicious at best, when you have two Individuals that have been proven of physical abuse against their Spouse and have received a slap on the hand, compared to the way they are handling a so called deflated football? There is something wrong within the organization and needs to be corrected in a big way, not too mention the way the league has handled a lot of other situations brought before them in the past.

Roger Goodell would not be Commissioner if it weren’t for Robert Kraft and the way Mr. Kraft spoke this morning of the leagues actions, he is pissed and I can’t say I don’t blame him one bit. The league has handled this situation badly from the start and it is just snow balling out of control right now, like a small camp fire left unattended. Tom Brady with his four Super Bowl wins, his three Superbowl MVP’s and his two league regular season MVP’s, not to mention other records and stats he holds, has more than proven that he is the best Quarterback of this time and can be mentioned along with the greatest Quarterbacks, within the history of the National Football league.   Tom Brady does not need to cheat, cause he works his tail off whether in practice or a sanctioned game and when you work as hard as Tom does, you also can be the best at what you do. There is an old saying, “the hater’s are always going to hate”? This holds so true today and because Tom works so hard to be the best at what he does, plus the fact he has become a winner, now your going to have hater’s coming out of the wood work everywhere. What I say to all the Hater’s is, “if you want to be a Winner like Tom Brady, then step up to the plate and beat the Winner”. “Stop all the talk cause talk is cheap, it’s your actions and how you step up to the plate that matters a lot more than the cheap words”. Tom Brady is a class act and we all should step up to the plate to be like him, he has my full support through all this and when all is said and done, all the hater’s will go back under that rock they crawled out from.

” the Hater’s may always hate, but if they spent more time stepping up to the plate, then they will find there is no time to hate”

” The National Football League clearly has it’s issues, it’s time they step up to the plate and fix the issues, so the league can become better and let the great players get back to what they do best”

Is it a scandal, or maybe just jealousy….

This whole thing between the New England Patriots, Tom Brady and the National Football League, really has no legs to stand on after seeing the Wells report. You can clearly see there is no solid evidence proving that Brady did, or knew of the deflation to the game day footballs, nor if the deflation really happened. It could quite possibly be that pure science, the warmer temp from the inside and then the colder temp of the outside, could be the reason for the deflation, if it all happened in the first place?

This could be just the NFL trying to save face, after the way they handled one case of child abuse charges and another case of one player ( on video) beating his wife unconscious? Not to mention the fact that, there are other players within the NFL that, simply don’t put their best foot forward representing the NFL in the best way.

When you have a team like the Patriots, that win more than they lose, you are going to have the hater’s hating on the team. Now with these gross implications by the NFL, you have the hater’s speaking loudly now more than before, This so called Wells report has no clear cut evidence to back up the findings and when Brady breaks his silence through his Lawyers, we will all see that Tom did not cheat in a game he loves so much, not to mention a game that clearly no one is as competitive as Tom is of football.

We all need practice to compete in at a high level on game day, Tom during team practices will practice harder than his teammates and he is always first to show up at the practice, this is known fact and this is why he has become a winner, in the sport he knows, loves and enjoys to play. My statement to all the hater’s is, if you want to be like Tom, then step up to the plate, put in the hard work like Tom and become a winner from the hard work you achieve, you will never be a winner from always taking the easy road and hating on a true winner, winning is never easy and when you think you practiced enough, think again? keep practicing so you then can become great at what you do, with this greatness is how you become a winner and a champion.

Quarterbacks like Tom Brady don’t come around all that often and when you hate on him for winning, you just can’t come to like him, nor can you just simply watch and enjoy his play, while he is still playing the game he loves and enjoys to play.

The game of football is first about strategy and second about having the talent to compete and play at a high level, you can’t excel and be great without first practicing and putting the time in to practice, to be better in the sport you love to play. the strategy comes from the playbook that the coaches put together and the players practice the plays, so they can execute each play with perfection, when the players and coaches are on the same page and when the strategy is executed to a “T” and is the best strategy on the field during game day, this is what helps you win the game and ultimately winning the championship you set out to win, on the first game of the season.

” winning and being a champion is about the hard work put in during the practices, so you can execute and have the best strategy”

” to be able to be a winner and a champion, you need to step up to the plate, put in the hard work in practice and stop taking the easy way, or hating on those that do actually win or are a true champion”

Big Vince and the New England Patriots

big vince             This is a letter I pulled off of Twitter that was retweeted by DJ Bean, who is within the Boston Sports Media. Looks like Big Vince is in the process of a big decision.

Vince Wilfork is one of those type of players in sports, that doesn’t come along very often, not only was he a great player and even a big time player, but more important was that he was a very special player throughout his years here in New England. You can put him in the same category as Teddy Brushci and Tom Brady, the three of them have multiple championships with the same team and all three are very good leaders who redefined what being a true leader is. Big Vince led by example and has never been any kind of trouble for his team.

Big Teddy bear, that is a nickname I gave this great player of Vince Wilfork, off the field and within the 5th quarter press conferences, this is how Big Vince came across, on the field how ever, there was no more a competitive player than Big Vince, even when the other team doubled team him, he still found a way to break up a play. When he tipped that ball in the air, then caught it and ran for the touchdown, I was overcome with tears of joy, only cause that was Vince being Vince and what made him a great player.

With this letter and seeing that Big Vince has a decision to make, I as a true Patriot fan will back him 100%, no matter what his decision whether retirement or playing for another team? I will always be a Big Vince fan and wish him the best of luck in what ever decision he makes. We as true New England Patriot fans owe him this, for all his hard work he has done for his team and teammates and especially for the way he came back from his injury, a torn Achilles would probably of side lined an ordinary player longer or end their career?   As Big Vince used it to motivate himself even more, for the benefit of his team.

Now the sports media may spin this hundreds of different ways, only cause that is their job and creating drama is what they do, without the drama they will have no job, hence then maybe we can all watch and enjoy our sports and favorite players even more. With that said, anybody that says anything bad about Big Vince, does not really know Big Vince. He is not only a great player on Game day, but what he brings to his team/teammates, is true leadership and trusting in his teammates as they should trust in him to do their jobs on the field and with their motto of “do your job” this season, then ending with another championship, speaks loudly of how Big Vince was throughout his career here with the New England Patriots.

” Big Vince was a great leader for his team and his attitude and actions proved just that”

“Good luck in all you do Big Vince, as this fan is a fan for life”

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”

Boston’s sports Media, should all quit and become comedians…………..

When ever I listen to those “Drama Queens” of the Boston sports Media, all I can do is laugh at everything they say, just to create a story and keep their jobs for another day.

They always ask the dumbest questions, they repeat themselves often as if they think their audience is dumber than they are, then they pick the stupidest topics to rant over, cause they think it will produce the most drama, or ratings for their show? They put so much pressure on the players to perform, that some simply fail to perform, cause they cave into the pressure.

Look at Edgar Rentaria, he played for the Red Sox and before he came to the Sox, he was a great player that won a batting title and a gold glove, but while here he did nothing, cause the sports media here nicknamed him “rent-a-wreck”, which ultimately led to his lack of performance while he was here, after leaving here, he was once again an all star player with the Atlanta Braves.

Some players thrive in the limelight, some fail in it, just look at Big Papi he can’t get enough attention for his liking, when he retires he wants to be above Teddy “ballgame” Williams, look at Tom Brady he loves to play games with the media and says things for them to run with or bite at his words, then when the media bites and runs with a story, Brady sits back and laughs at them for the drama queens they are.

Most of the sports Media studied sports journalism in college, but was never good enough to be in the top of their sport, maybe a little jealousy there? a lot of them are retired players  that are now reporting on their favorite sport, yes these guys are more credible, but at times they to bite at the words of current players, just to help create more drama for their stations in which they work and get paid to help boost their ratings.

There are some of the sports media I can stomach, but yet there are others that makes me vomit whenever they open their mouths, we won’t get into the who’s, as this might make them cry? Yet I will say that, if you think you can do better than Belichek, or even Julien, than go give the Bruins and Patriots organizations your resumes and see if you can bring championships here, to Boston with everything they deal with, on and off the field or ice.

In my lifetime I have seen a Baker’s dozen worth of championships come to this City, none being better then the three of the Bruins, as this is my favorite team and sport, my opinion of Belichek and Julien is simply “greatness”, two of the best coaches this city has seen, with Tito of the Sox being in third and doing what he did to end the curse. CURSE!!!!! you say? I say that’s for another blog, as it was only another way for the sports Media of this city to create more drama and keep their jobs for another day.

” To create drama is to create a fake reality, why not speak truths and create an actual reality”

” The sports media will create drama for us to bite at, if we don’t bite then they can’t do their jobs correctly”
