When I started this blog in 2013 I intended to include a brief narrative with every post in order to explain my motivation at the time I wrote it. Once I started posting articles and started getting followers and responses, I felt compelled to get as many posts published as quickly as possible; and the opening narratives were abandoned in the interest of expediency. I’m going back now, and doing what I intended to do in the first place.
When I wrote this piece last January, the news cycle was being dominated by “Deflategate;” a couple pounds of air pressure in the New England Patriots’ footballs.
I’ve never been accused of being overly intelligent, but I would like to think that those who know me best know how highly I value honesty and integrity. The way I see it, if you’re willing to cheat on the small things, you’ll probably do the same on the big things.

Lying and cheating may get you what you want in the short term but, in the end, the Universe’s perfect accounting system reconciles all debts owed.
There is much hoopla in America right now over 2 pounds of air pressure in less than a dozen footballs. If it’s proven that the Patriots intentionally altered these footballs in an attempt to gain an unfair advantage, they cheated. Based on their past history, I’m thinking it was intentional. The irony is, the Patriots are good enough to win without cheating. I’m not a Patriots fan, but I admire their athletic abilities. While I admire their prowess on the football field, I have no respect for them as an organization. Unfortunately, they seem to have bought into a win at all costs mentality. It seems they don’t understand that by sacrificing your honesty and integrity in order to win; you ultimately lose everything.
Football is only a game, and in the big scheme of things, I have very little interest in what a bunch of highly paid men, frozen in adolescence…
