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.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
