Votre duo préféré est encore au rendez-vous.
L’autre Donald se défoule encore une fois dans les Fous Éduqués.
Est-ce que vous êtes prêts?
It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
Tous les fans de football américain ont chanté au moins une fois cette chanson durant le début de la saison de la NFL qui est un grand classique de Monsieur Crosby.
On commence cette nouvelle en force avec les chroniques de notre cher Fou Éduqué, monsieur Donald Démosthènes.
Il a déjà beaucoup de choses à nous dire.
Écoutons-le avec attention.
The Patriots are going (again) to the Super Bowl. I’m not a happy camper.
And to make things worst, Philadelphia Eagles are joining the party.
For all the Steelers fans, Dallas Cowboys nation and others teams, it’s a nightmare.
But I must admit the Pats have this capacity of being a discipline team and they keep their cool under stressful situation.
Tom Brady is without a doubt The Greatest (ouch) QB of all time and he will have more rings than me in his jewelry box.
Honestly, how many rings that a man need in his fingers. I could hear the hubby saying the same thing for me.
My prediction for this year Super Bowl will be the Pats as winner but I think it will be their last and the end of the dynasty. We all know what is going on but no ones really want to tackle the subject as it is.
We do read here and there some glimpse but I will make this promise that you will read really soon our theory with the help of Donnie Demosthenes aka The Educated Fool.
But let’s be in the moment, I am putting my money on Belichick’s army.
In three weeks, my blood pressure (and the rest of NFL citizens) will be lower since there will be no more football on TV.
I guess it will be the right time to watch The Crown on Netflix, to learn how to do some scrapbooking and others activities right…
Hmm hell no (except for watching The Crown).
I will cry a river until the FIFA World Cup will start.

The game last Sunday was a complete disaster! It’s hard to swallow the way they lost this game. It seems like ‘déjà vu’.
I will focus on the fact that Ben Roethlisberger seemed to be lost. He is definitely not the same kind of player he used to be. Not like when he started in 2003, with the Steel Curtain. He was amazed by his physical abilities, to run, and to be this big QB. Those where the days!
But something changed…
He was not the messiah that we were waiting for. The Steelers may have won their first Super Bowl in 2006, but Ben played like a really clumsy QB. And, that was the start of my brother love-hate relationship and I quickly follow.
But Ben can be The Greatest!
He wanted to have the respect that the Tom Bradys and the Payton Mannings of this world have, but he is not part of this very elite VIP club. Those guys have this special gift to be legends on the field. They are breathing Football with a capital F!
I never sensed that Ben had the same discipline as them . They make the play with such precision. They are the showstoppers! Ben is a great addition to a showstopper unit, but he is not like the director directing a movie or a playwright directing his play. He is the Difference Breaker and he is a great QB.
Mike Tomlin gave him the opportunity to actually be a Manning or a Brady but as Sunday’s game showed us, it just doesn’t work. It could be he had to much responsibilities on him. Let Ben be the Ben. If they want to go far this season, this would be the remedy for this bad situation.
Could this be his last season?
Or, could it be the rebirth of the Big Ben?
I’m happy to share an interview with one of the members of the Sharpshooter Funding (SSF) family with you. He is truly one of sweetest people I talk to, and we both love the language of Molière! It’s fun to share this interest in the beautiful French language with someone.
His name is Gregg Farineau and he is the Director of Sales at Sharpshooter Funding.
What do you like most about Montreal?
Well, I have been to Montreal only once, about 10 years ago. I am from France and old Montreal reminded me of back home quite a bit. I also thought the night life was unreal! We went out to Club Opera as well as the W Hotel, and a few other spots I really enjoyed. The city definitely has a lot to offer.
Now you have joined the dream team, I’m talking about The Sharpshooter Funding team. How did it happen?
Well, I have known Dallas for over 20 years and I knew about Sharpshooter right away when it started so I asked him if there was ever an opportunity for me to jump on board to let me know. The opportunity came around January of 2017 when Paul asked Dallas if he knew anyone who speaks French, as there was a lot of potential business coming out of Quebec so I joined the team without hesitation.
Do you have plans to expand your services to small companies in Quebec?
We are offering our services to all businesses in Quebec, we just require that you have been in business for at least six (6) months, so that we can show you what we can offer you in terms of working capital options.
Since I love talking about sports and music, can you tell us which NFL team you are rooting for to win the Super Bowl (The Steelers, I hope)?
I would have to say the Baltimore Ravens, I was always a Ray Lewis fan and since we have a few players (past and present) from the team helping represent us they are my pick for the Super Bowl.
The Ravens have beaten The Steelers this weekend, I’m a little sad… Oh well, I wonder if they may face each other during the Playoffs. It’s really cool to see that some players (past and present) from the Ravens are supporting the Dream Team. My next question is about music. Let’s see what he says….
You seem to be a big music fan, what is the best memory you have from a concert?
There have been so many great moments at music festivals and concerts that I have been fortunate enough to attend; it would be hard to narrow it down to one. I would have to say Empire of the Sun at Ultra Music Festival in Miami (2014) or the M83 in concert in Calgary last year were the two that come to mind right away.
My last question is what makes the SSF team The Dream Team?
Well, I think we work well together as we have all the pieces to make this a successful company. We have Bret as our spokesman as the majority of Canadians know who he is, myself and Dallas are motivated, hard workers and Paul is the whole brains of this operation who has an unrelenting work ethic. All these things combined make this a success and hopefully we can keep growing and keep helping as many businesses across Canada for years to come.
Thank you Gregg for this nice and cool interview!
Last night, Dallas Hart and Gregg were at a fundraiser for The Sait Chinook Lodge Foundation. This foundation is promoting education for the Indigenous community.
You can actually exclusively some pictures of this special event. I would like to thank the SSF ”Sharpshooter Funding” team to share with us those pictures.
I’m very proud that the Sharpshooter team is getting involve with some amazing Canadian charities.
It’s a pleasure interviewing the members of The Dream Team. More interviews will come on The Chronicle about their ventures and we will add in it some Pop Culture references, sharing some music knowledge and others interesting subjects to talk about.
Let’s the beat goes on!
By the way, pink is a really cool colour.
I know that you are tired of me singing this pure Bing Crosby classic but every big moment of the year feel like I could sing this song over and over again.
My Steelers has won the game agains't the Giants. So, I'm a happy camper.
What to expect this year with the Steel Curtain machine?
With Saturday night game, you have a feeling that there is a big changes in the Steelers defense.
Could be a sign that they want to beat this year the team to beat? I'm talking about The Patriots. I'm still not a fan of The Pats but they are the 2017 Super Bowl champions and they did a comeback during that Super Bowl that left me speechless. Brady is clearly one of the greatest GB of this universe but better than Young, Marino, Bradshaw, Montana and Aikman of this world?
I leave that question unanswered.
I have faith in my boys that this year, they will give some headaches to the 2017 Champs.
Mike Tomlin's army will be ready as I am ready. Let's go boys.
Poor the Cowboys. I'm a lonesome cowboy dah dah dah dah dah dah Lucky Luke song. Back to the Dallas Cowboys. Elliot is suspended for 6 games (OMG) and everyone are like what will happen to the Cowboys. Come on people, have a little faith.
They will survive but by watching the game agains't the Los Angeles Rams, some little adjustment will be made but I can guarantee they will give us a hell of a show this season.
I won't talk about The Pats! NO, NO, NO and NO!
I will try to give you a very fun, entertaining review of some games during this season.
2017-2018 will be one unforgettable season. I'm so excited and I just can't hide it. I'm in a singing mood today.
Let get ready to rumble (safely of course)!
