What do the Patriots and the Dollar have in Common?

Both are a fraud.

In stunning fashion, the Patriots (or the Cheatriots as John calls them) beat the Falcons on Sunday in what will most likely be considered the greatest Super Bowl of all time. The Patriots were losing 28-3 with 8:30 left to go in the third quarter, which would normally be an insurmountable lead.

I wasn’t rooting for either team, but I thought it would be nice if the NFL’s perennial cheaters from New England would be served a humiliating loss on America’s biggest athletic stage.

“The devil’s own children have the devil’s own luck.” This was one of Grandma Kennedy’s favorite sayings, and it ran through my mind as I watched the Cheatriots mount the greatest comeback win in Super Bowl history.

Like the dollar, the Cheatriots, are the “Teflon Don” of the NFL. Spygate, Deflategate, and a murderer (Aaron Hernandez) have not stopped Cheatriots quarterback Tom Brady from becoming the winningest in Super Bowl history.

But there will come a day. Like Lance Armstrong, Pete Rose, Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire, Tiger Woods, Tonya Harding and countless other athletes have learned, reality always catches up with you. One day both the dollar and the Cheatriots will be unmasked, and the fraud will leave a whole bunch of people angry, frustrated and disappointed.

Leverage Service Animals!

Our country has lost its collective mind, and it’s no more apparent than allowing pets on airplanes. Before you hit unsubscribe, let me assure you that I appreciate animals like a fine cigar. I enjoy both on the ground and not in a confined sky tube. Comedian Adam Carolla has famously said he will eventually bring Gilligan, his pet pelican, on an airplane just to prove the foolishness of this relatively new privilege.

On my return trip from Arizona, the airline seated me next to a burly man with a tiny dog. I didn’t notice the “service animal” in a small carry-on until my throat and eyes began to react to the scent. You see, I’ve always been allergic to pet dander.

I notified the flight attendant that I’m allergic to pet dander and that I would be self upgrading to business class. Before she had a chance to speak, I turned around and headed for my new seat.

Let me encourage you to do more things like this in your own life. If companies and governments are going to adopt these inane policies, then leverage them to your advantage. They started this war, and it’s up to us to win it!
