The false narrative will be ramped up.

It will be all about Tom Brady, times 10, in fact.

They — Brady’s front-running minions — will paint a picture of how he did it all by himself, how Brady, on the heels of beating a rebuilding Eagles team is the sole reason the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are headed to the NFC Divisional Game on Sunday.

You will hear over and over again that Brady is the G.O.A.T. — the Greatest Of All Time. It will be a drum beat. That’s for a reason. They are trying to convince you of something that just isn’t true if you look at his career honestly.

It’s kind of how Brady got the most glory for winning the Patriots’ sixth Super Bowl over the L.A. Rams two years ago. Somehow, Bill Belichick’s defense held a historically-great Rams offense to three points in a 13-3 victory. In that snooze-fest, Brady had NO touchdowns, a pick and a fumble. In fact, the MVP of the Super Bowl was receiver Julian Edelman, who didn’t even have a touchdown in the game.

This has been Brady’s history, starting from the very beginning of his career when he fumbled the ball against the Raiders almost exactly 19 years ago to the day of Sunday’s game.

Raiders CB Charles Woodson tackled Brady and the ball came out. It clearly appeared to be a fumble with about a minute-and-half left. The Raiders recovered the ball. It should have sealed the game. Instead, officials reviewed the call and said that Brady was trying to tuck the ball and ruled it an incomplete pass. Pats got the ball back and eventually kicked a game-winning field goal.

There isn’t enough room on the internet to list all the lucky things that have happened for Brady, but add the Packers losing yesterday at home and Brady should get another free ride to the super bowl.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
