A Tale of Two Cities: Eagles v Patriots Super Bowl LLI

A couple hundred years ago, an underdog cluster of colonies took on the most powerful dynasty in the world. Britain had a stronger economy and a squad of accomplished generals leading a seemingly unbeatable army that had, until then, crushed its opponents at will. The contest was so lopsided the bookies were offering up a hundred point spread.

Make every effort to change things you do not like. If you cannot make a change, change the way you have been thinking. You might find a new solution.”
