No accident

Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. – Seneca

For those of you attuned to the intricacies of the NFL, you may be aware of the 70 yard kickoff return by offensive lineman Dan Connolly in the recent Patriots-Packers game. 

The longest return for the lineman in NFL history.

While some may attribute this seeming impossibility to blind luck, it turns out that Bill Belichick, the Patriots’ head coach, had prepared his team for this eventuality, and that practice was even caught on tape

Belichick prepared his team for this seemingly impossible, one-in-a-million play, and it worked to perfection. 

This is why the New England Patriots have the best record in football and why Belichick is the most valuable member of that team.

Luck favors the prepared. – Louis Pasteur
