Confidence, Not Cockiness

You think you know who you are but you don’t. You probably did years ago but now you have no clue who you are other than your name. You don’t know what you do because if you DID, you would actually DO it instead of wasting your time doing foolish shit on social media sites (like looking at porn, stalking others and playing games).

You have NO CLUE who you do it for, other than YOURSELF. If you even had an INKLING as to WHO you do anything for you’d treat those that feed you with more respect, instead of just acting like they are another twenty bucks for you.

Once again, you have no IDEA what anyone wants from you. You are a jack of all trades and a master of none. Finally, since you have no IDEA who you do WHAT for, you wouldn’t know how it changes anyone if it came up and bit you on the ass. And no, you are NOT in the 20%. More like the negative 20% who don’t give a shit about anyone but yourself.

You are the one who doesn’t get it, you will never get it and you are too cocky and arrogant to EVER get it!

Review: “Sully”

We all know the story of how airplane Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger saved the lives of all 155 passengers on his disabled plane by landing it on the Hudson River.  He was regaled a hero.  In essence he was.  What else would you call a man who safely landed a plane and didn’t lose a passenger?  What we didn’t know was how the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) felt there was more to Sully’s water “crash” than him being labeled a hero.

“Sully”, directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Tom Hanks, delves into the unseen, unheard of interrogations that Sully and his co-captain Jeff Skiles (played by Aaron Eckhart) endured from the NTSB regarding the incident.  This highly intense, enthralling film gets right into the meat of the story from the beginning and adds the backstory as it goes along.  Eastwood makes it work well, depicting the actual events, from the start of the NTSB hearings to the actual water landing and rescue back to the final bits of the hearing.  Hanks is overwhelmingly convincing as Sullenberger and portrays him extremely well.

In between we see how Sully, a seemingly humble, straight-and-narrow, no frills type of guy is thrust into the limelight, something you can sense he is not comfortable with.

Once he realizes the entire incident really revolves around having been in the right place at the right time, Sully and Jeff set out to prove to the NTSB that their decision to land on the Hudson may not have been the best choice for the airline or their insurance company, but it was the best choice for saving human lives.

“Sully” is a definite must-see for any Tom Hanks fan.  He has become a master of the biopic and his work in “Sully” adds to the inspiration of an all ready stirring tale of survival.

Search Terms

In the nearly ten years I’ve been writing this blog, I’ve compiled a list of search terms that people have plugged into search engines and in turn they have been led to my blog.  Some are hysterical and some have just left me wondering.

Here are a select few from over the years:

From 2008:

  • million paper airplanes
  • paper airplane guiness world record
  • guiness world record paper airplanes
  • Hunter Winship
  • paper airplanes Guiness
  • hunter million paper airplanes
  • guiness paper airplane

I remembered writing about a young boy who I believe had cancer and his dream was to make the Guiness Book of World Records for having the most paper airplanes.  I think people from all over the world were making and sending him paper airplanes.

Thanks For The Memories

Kevin Garnett came into the NBA a wet-behind-the-ears but wise-beyond-his-years 18-year-old high school kid.  Kevin Garnett leaves the NBA a former Timberwolve, Net and Celtic.  He leaves as a 40-year-old Boston Celtics champion, MVP,  and nominee of 15 All-Star Games.

Kevin Garnett, I thank you so very much for helping bring another championship to the Boston Celtics and righting what at that time I felt was a sinking ship.

Thank you for bringing your talent to the NBA.  Thank you for the memories.

The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From The Tree

I’m not even certain one can call Donald Trump, Jr. a human being after his distasteful, dehumanizing, extremely poor analogy comparing Skittles candy to Syrian refugees.  It certainly proves the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Speaking of “apples” the photo that was used in Jr.’s meme was posted using an iPhone.  The iPhone was created by the son of a Syrian immigrant. Ironic or arrogant?

So I have to ask:

Who is the bigger ass?

If The Tables Were Turned

I feel for the Austrian 18-year-old girl whose parents have shamelessly posted hundreds of photos of her on Facebook.  These aren’t just your ordinary everyday run-of-the-mill photos.  Nope.  These are photos that were taken of her throughout her childhood, during “milestone” moments (diaper changes, using the potty, first bath, etc.).  So I can certainly understand why she is upset.

As a parent there are those “special moment” photos you take.  However, they aren’t the kind of “special moment” photos you share.  They’re private.  They go in your child’s baby book or in a special photo album designated for that child.  They don’t go on Facebook for everyone to see.

I wonder how the parents would feel if their daughter found baby photos of them taken during their “milestone” moments and posted them on Facebook for all to see.  Maybe then they would understand why their daughter wants to sue them.

What Will It Be Today?

A list of today’s possible offenses:

A random baseball player will scratch his ass during the National Anthem, then adjust his balls

Pigeons in the park will stare at you cross-eyed

Someone will take a photo of a moose getting it on with another moose right in the middle of the Kancamagus Highway and then will post it all over social media for all to see.

Any random cashiers you come in contact with will not tell you to have a nice day

When you punch in your PIN number at the ATM the machine will reply “wrong PIN number, dumbass”.

Donald Trump will speak.  Whenever he speaks he says something that offends someone.  This is an everyday occurrence!

Hillary Clinton will walk around without a face mask infecting the world with her pneumonia

Bill Belichick may crack a smile.  I’m sure that would at least offend Goodell.

Someone will order a coffee at a random coffee place and the cup will not be handed to them correctly.

 

The list is endless for the possible offenses that may occur today.

So be on the lookout for all the offenses that may offend you.  While you’re busy being offended, spend some time trying hard not to be offended.  It isn’t good for you as a human being.

Posted in Sports, The New England Patriots

Why Should Anyone Be Surprised?

The Bills lost.

The Jets lost.

The Dolphins lost.

The Colts lost.

The Patriots….wait…WON?  Really?  Against the Great Carson Palmer and the Arizona Cardinals?  Without Tom, Gronk, Lewis, Jesus Christ and the very spirit of Vince Lombardi in their presence? With still-wet-behind-the-ears Jimmy G at the helm?  Whodathunkit?  Pinch me.  I must be dreaming.

C’mon, people.  Wake up and smell the Dunks.  These are the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS!  You should know better by now than to underestimate this TEAM.  Because that’s what they are:  A TEAM.

Yes, it wasn’t pretty.  Not every win is going to be.  But a win is a win.  Yes, you can say “luck” may have had something to do with it.  But our kicker didn’t miss any field goals.  And as any Patriots fan knows, sometimes it’s that final field goal that cements the game.

So as Rex Ryan is getting his wife’s bean dip ready for his Super Bowl party (because he’s all ready written the Bills off for the season…the man just has so much faith in his team🙂 ), here is a great winning smile from Bill Belichick

bill

and an even better one from our WINNING QB!

Welcome to the NFL, Jimmy G!

And So It Begins…

Patriots football is FINALLY back!  What the hell took so long?

I have no clue what this season is going to bring, especially the first four games.  What I do know is that, as always, the New England Patriots are a TEAM.  They play like a TEAM, more than any other TEAM in the NFL.  There isn’t any room for individualizing on this TEAM because it isn’t about INDIVIDUALS–it’s about a TEAM!  We win as a TEAM, we lose as a TEAM.  Either you’re all IN or you’re all OUT.  Simple as that.
