Super Bowl Sunday, we all witnessed an Individual setting the bar so high, at the position he play’s, that we may never in our lifetimes, see this done again. I am not saying it will never be duplicated, but this kind of stuff is a once in a lifetime kind of stuff. Tom Brady is the Quarter Back, and he is greatness personified. Tom was drafted by the New England Patriots in the 6th round, at pick number 199? So to say this was predicted is not even in the mention, nobody could of predicted this, not even Tom himself. Tom worked very hard everyday to perfect his craft, not just in the Pro’s, but even as a young child, now it is true that, he might of been a gifted Athlete, seeing he was also drafted in baseball as well, but this gift just doesn’t happen, as the Individual needs to put the work in, to perfect the craft he seeks. We all, if we put in the work, can achieve some success in whatever we want, maybe not quite like Tom, but we also can be successful at whatever we want.

When Tom was here in New England, we all know about his work ethnic, he was first in the building in the morning, and last to leave in the evening, he studied multiple tapes and video, time in the gym, on the practice field, many reps at everything it took, to make him perfect his craft. Tom’s greatness did not happen overnight, it took a lot of years, starting from a very young age. This wasn’t all him, as when he was young, he needed great support from his family, especially from his Mom and Dad, They could of steered him in a different direction, but instead, they guided him to follow his passion, and we all know just how much passion, Tom has for the sport of football.

Passion is deep within us all, but if we do not release it, we will never know our true potential. We all work our current 9 to 5’s, but how many of us have a true passion for what we do? Exactly!!! not many and Tom Brady is one that does. Not having passion for what we do, explains all the bitterness out there, the jealousy of each other, which then is followed by the hate of each other. You seen all the big smiles and then followed by big joy after the game by the Buccaneer’s, this was from them achieving their passion and becoming the winner of the Super Bowl, as the NFL’s best team. Then you saw sorrow, sadness, bitterness, some forgetting about the passion and letting their emotions, take them to a very ugly place, just because they didn’t win the Super Bowl, sports can be very emotional on both sides, whether happy or sad, this is what the competitive nature of each player, will bring to each other.

Being competitive is what gives each player, the drive to bring out the passion of their craft, this is how great players are made, and how they achieve the greatness within their sport. The ones who have no drive, or have no competitive spirit, these are the ones who do not last in the sport they play, guys like Tom Brady, Zedna Chara, Patrice Bergeron to name a few, totally have the drive and competitive spirit, not to mention, the passion of the game they play. You can not teach this passion, it is totally up to the player to let the passion, flow throughout their blood. The hard work, the drive, the enjoyment of what you do, the competition, are all the factors, of what it takes to release the passion throughout your veins, as it turns to the blood and who you become moving forward.

Sometimes the mountain top may seem to high, or maybe too difficult and you just walk away from attempting it, but if you do not attempt it, if you do not find the competition in it, if you can not find the passion to take that first step, now you will never see the true beauty that the summit holds for you, you will never let any passion, flow through your veins, as it turns into the blood that drives you everyday. Tom Brady has become more then just a 7 time Super Bowl Champion, more than just an Individual on a field playing a game, more than a person that works very hard to succeed at his craft, Tom has become an Icon to not just all of us, but an Icon for the many children looking up to him and to try to be like him, and even more, he has become an inspiration to us all, from this point on, as he as well as all of us, move forward, on our paths, throughout this journey of life.

” The journey to the top is never easy, but with hard work and passion, anything will seem easy over time”

” Passion is deep within us all and when we unleash it, the sky is the limit as to what we can achieve”

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”

The New England Patriots are the team to beat

The way the Patriots started the season and getting lit up at home to the Kansas City Chiefs, then all the so called Patriot fans coming out and calling for Brady and Belicheks’s jobs? Well where are these negative people now with the Patriots going to another Superbowl?

Tom Brady is one of these type of Quarterbacks that don’t come around that often and we need to just sit back and enjoy the ride, these Individuals that spoke of his decline…… well I think Brady has shut them up with his play on the field this season, Brady is also the type of Quarterback that can turn a nobody receiver, into a star in the league and if you look back at Dieon Branch, what he did here with Tom, then going to Seattle and doing nothing, speaks loudly of the type of Quarterback Brady is, he is also a true humble person and always puts his team before himself, he works the hardest in practices and studies more film on other teams defenses than any other Quarterback in the league, Tom when he entered the NFL with the Patriots, was so far off the radar no team even looked his way, but The hard work by Tom gave him his chance when Drew Bledsoe went down, then Tom never looked back and worked even harder to keep this job pretty much for his entire career, Tom’s competitive juices are second to none throughout the league and I will say he is the most competitive Quarterback in the game today.

What can you say about Bill Belichek? the only word that comes to my mind is “GENIUS”. Bill knows the game inside the game, he knows when to get players and when to release them, Bill is a very demanding coach of his players, but he only demands cause he knows how to get the very best from the players, the Patriots under Bill are the ones that came out with the no huddle quick offense with Brady working it to perfection, now with the last two games this season in the these playoffs you see a lot of different formations and plays from these formations, which throws off the defense and makes them confused on what is going to be played, goes to show what the Legacy of Bill Belichek and Tom Brady are all about, plus now you may see more teams picking up on this, so they can try to be like the Patriots? The only issue I have with other teams doing what the Patriots have success with is, there is only one Tom Brady and one Bill Belichek.

We can not mention the Patriots without mentioning Bob Kraft, since he bought this team he has become the best Owner in all professional sports. Not just being an Owner of the team, but what he does away from the game, with his open wallet when it comes to charities, Bob Kraft is more than a Businessman and more than an Owner of a football team, he is a great Humanitarian within our Society and his humbleness has affected each member of the New England Patriots Team. This alone is why this team is so good, for so long.

You are going to have a lot of so called fans and so called sports media members, who have become to hate on this Patriot Organization, let’s put it this way, the Patriots have become to football, like the Yankees have become to baseball, just simply because they win more than they lose, what I challenge to these haters is, if you want to win and be a winner, then step up and beat a winner. It’s not about the Patriots marching down the field and scoring, it’s even more about the other team to try to stop them from scoring, those that hate on a team cause they win too much, don’t really know the game, or even better they don’t really know how sports in general are played. You play the game to win, in football you play for a chance at the Lombardi trophy, this Patriot team worked hard all season for this chance at one more game for the Lombardi, they overcame a lot of adversity throughout the season and had a difficult schedule to get to this point, they earned this chance at yet another Lombardi, we as true fans need to just sit back and enjoy the ride, so this team of the Patriots can finish the journey they set out to do at the beginning of the season.

” Good luck to the New England Patriots and may you finish your journey you set out to do”

” You play the game to win, you play the game to be a Champion”

” sports is about winning and stopping another team from the goal of winning”

” You can’t learn to win gracefully, without first losing gracefully”
