Even being an Accidental Hero takes hard work and perseverance

This is not just another post Super Bowl XLIX blah-blah-blah, crappy commercials and halftime show aside, this should be the biggest story from the game, Malcolm Butler, especially in the year of Ferguson riots and #HandsUpDontShoot mentalities on the streets.

From the Washington Post

Butler, 24, had completed an inconceivable path from batter cook to Division II standout to undrafted rookie to Super Bowl hero. Sunday night, Butler sealed the Patriots’ 28-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks with an interception at the goal line with 20 seconds remaining, both the deciding play of a classic Super Bowl and the culmination of Butler’s self-made ascension.

It’s a very inspiring backstory about this young man, share it with the young people in your life, whatever their color or gender, Mr. Butler is an inspiration for them. He was for me 🙂

Yes, a Reagan speech. Sorry, I may have been too young to appreciate it too, 30 years ago, and it was AWESOME…

Hey Girl, It’s Trey Gowdy !

From October 2013 and a preview of things to come from Team Gowdy and his #Benghazi Select Committee. These questions still haven’t been answered, but you can see how he earned the Chairmanship…….

Via The Crawdad Hole where it’s okay to criticize the Obama Administration without being bullied like a middle school kid, or being called names like a “wrongheaded” racist teabagger !
