The Patriots got “Played” at Hard Rock Stadium




” Superman has the Kryptonite, as the Patriots have Miami stadium”

             This season of the NFL, is one with many flops and turns  by each team. The team mostly in question here are the New England Patriots, as this is my home team and one that I have seen much worse from, than the last few years. I remember this team losing more then they won and the favorite quote year after year was, ” wait til next year”. Now this quote was used by all the Boston team fans, but look at the city now, as they are known for the many titles as “Titletown”, with the Patriots and the Red Sox leading the way. 

      

               Yesterday’s Patriots game…………. True it was a heart breaker, but with all seriousness, it was one of those plays that does and will rear it’s ugly head, on to any playing field, of any sport. Today within all the Sports medias, they are all going to be the ” Monday Quarterbacks”, they are all going to be chatting as if they are the experts and all else are second to them, what I say to them is, it is you and your drama that all the sports can do without, so let the players play, keep the drama to yourselves. 

                  Tom Brady is one of those Athletes that does not come along very often, so instead of trying to predict of his retirement, by being overly critical of each play, simply just sit back and enjoy the ride, for the ride will not last forever. It has been twenty years and counting, that Tom Brady has brought the New England Patriots from a team of, not even mentioned in the sports world, to a team of ” Champions”. Tom Brady and Bill Belichek are Winners and when one makes a mistake of calling for the wrong play, OMG!!! The World is going to end? They are human like you and I, they are going to make mistakes like you and I, it is when we correct our mistakes, that has us grow better and stronger moving forward on our path through this journey of life, with Bill and Tom making fewer mistakes over those twenty years, that has us all in the denial part of admitting to the seasons of New England Patriot football before the Belichek and Brady era. 

                    Sports is no different than any other aspect of our lives, there is no such thing as perfection, there will be mistakes made, the difference between the Patriots over the years, compared to other NFL teams, they knew how to correct their mistakes quickly, so they wouldn’t get in the way of their winning seasons. Those that are very successful in life, they to make mistakes as we do, just that they are the Belichek and the Brady’s of the real world, they quickly correct their mistakes, so they can move forward better and stronger, everyday throughout the journey of life. With this last mistake of guarding against the hail Mary and putting Gronk out there on Defense, yes I can see the theory of having someone with good hands and being tall to deflect and knock down the ball, they did this with success when Randy Moss was on the team, but with this changing NFL, you as well need to adapt and change with it, or become the Patriots of old, when the “L’s” would outweigh the “W’s”. To be a Champion in anything, you need to adapt and change, as the New England Patriots, under Bill Belichek, did this better than anybody, which is why they have five Superbowl victories out of eight trips, Tom Brady with five rings, going one beyond his Idol Joe Montana. Instead of hating on this team so quickly and bringing more unwanted drama too us, lets remember on key thing, ” In Bill and Tom we trust”. 

” Football is a team sport that is a chess match between the coaches, with the players and their talents, helping the coach make all the right moves, with an occasional over looked play, becoming the miracle play”

”   We all have that something that gets in the way, it gets frustrating, by staying true to who you are, we can overcome that something”

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”
