El Niño Torres scored an unheard-of four goals against Tahiti in the Confederations Cup, and I was happy. Lately he’s been underperforming, and lynchmob of critics has persecuted him. They’ve even mocked him for being a nice guy, a decent human being (Maybe they Luis Suarez better, the Uruguayan racist who also bites opponents.)
James Lebron led the Heat to the NBA comeback final victory, and I was happy. He has been unjustly criticized for choking in finals, for betraying his first team, even for his skinny teams. They trash-talk him.
Tim Tebow talks Christianity, and they shut him up. Collins talks homosexuality, and it´s national news. He’s a hero.
I think people despise the nice guy because the nice guy makes them feel like bad guys — by comparison. Thus, the rant, the hate, the cackling of “good guys finish last.”
So… I love it when good guys finish first. I’m trying to be a good guy too! And, yeah, good guys DO finish first. If you don’t believe me, just show up on Heaven’s Judgment Day. (Everybody will show up, even those who don’t believe in God.)

Hey Msinop1. on your gravatar page, include your blog because I can’t find it to follow you!
Little boy games always have good guys and bad guys. When our guys were small, I would always encourage them to choose to be the good guys. One son said one time, “But Mom, it’s harder and not as much fun being the good guys, they have to follow the rules.”
“But,” I told him, “The good guy ALWAYS wins in the very end.” Thanks for your post!
great observation from your boy!
I have nominated Mustard seed Budget for an award. Thank you for your fellowship, and inspiration!!! Receive from link above!!
Football (Soccer Manager for 15 years here) Thanks for the follow, good blog!! From Scotland, Glasgow Celtic fan… Torres needs a new team, he was a Liverpool Fan, and didn’t want to go to Chelsea. Confidence is EVERYTHING in football, but he seems to be getting it back. Man United would be the PERFECT side for him I think…
Thanks again for the follow..
But Ferguson is leaving! Wow, you were a football manager! Cool! My favorite team is Barcelona because I got to know football when I was in Guatemala.
I was at the Celtic 2-1 Barcelona game last season there just before Christmas. unreal!!! 2-0 up we were (Celtic) And yeah, Loved being a footy manager.

A VERY SPECIAL FOOTBALL CLUB!!
That was a BIG moment for Celtic! I remember it.
Yeah it was like Alloa Beating Brazil HUGE..With no Rangers in the league and will never win the league for then next 20 years, Celtic and the 62,000 fans have outgrown the Scottish Game…. Shame, would be Huge in the English Premiership
The Guatemalans all followed the Spanish league. My disciple was a HUGE Barcelona fan so he explained to me the sport and the histories and the players. The more I lerned, the more I got excited! Now I’m a big fan. But as far as Scottish football goes, I know little. It is great to make your acquaintanc.
The pleasure is mine. Barcelona are a TOP, TOP football team. Celtic have a bigger fan base, but the draw of Barcelona will ALWAYS get them Lionel Messi and more. They are a brand name. The 3 videos I sent you, the first two were the night we beat Barceloan (Again) When our 2nd goal went in, I was level with the player who scored it, as he shot for goal to his left. It was our 125th Birthday as a club that day also, that is why we had the Display.
Scottish Football used to be big, we had Larsson, Laudrup, Gascoigne, Junionho and more at Celtic and Rangers. But Rangers got caught cheating and were bannished the lower league and have to work back up. So money is tight in the Scottish game. But it is all over Europe, the new laws coming in means a club can ONLY spend what they bring in. So no Sugar Daddy football any more. Abramovich at Chelsea won’t be able to buy from his cheque book any more. So the game will change.
That will equalize soccer then!
Em, what? lol 🙂
Oh, equal finances means any team can rise up and win. But if teams are sheik-driven and funded, then he who has the most money wins. Not quite the spirit of sport.
Always been the case, Money and Greed..
Cheers.. and Well said
yup, so true.
I know it puzzles me at times…especially the heroes people choose. All are trying to fill that God-shaped hole in their heart. Thanks!
My dearest friend, I have nominated you for some awards, please visit this link :transcendingbordersblog.wordpress.com/2013/06/24/2-awards-combined-in-1/
Wayne Gretsky, don’t forget Wayne! 🙂
I remember him. Was he nice?
They hated Jesus, too, didn’t they.
“Remember when the world hates you that it hated me first” Jesus. The dark does not like the light. This will never change. This is why the light must brighten up the darkness so there is no place for evil to hide. All cloaks must be removed.
thanks for the encouragement!
