SUPER BOWL TOMORROW–WHO ARE YOU ROOTING FOR?
Las Vegas has Atlanta as the underdog going into Sunday.

The odds surrounding Super Bowl 51 between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons remain in a holding pattern.

Oddsmakers in Las Vegas clearly don’t want to swing too far in one direction or the other. The posture isn’t hard to understand, given that the offensive-minded showdown featuring Tom Brady and Matt Ryan is capable of swinging in either direction in a matter of seconds.

Given the offensive potential and dominance of both sides on the path to Sunday’s encounter, the Moneyline and overall odds paint a clear picture—lots of scoring and an outcome akin to the flip of a coin.hi-res-425752bb78ccc441234bc3a92047ecc4_crop_north

“Your greatest success comes just one step beyond the point at which defeat has overtaken you.” Napoleon Hill
“I almost didn’t make it to Room 222. My lowest point, career-wise came just before I tested for 222. I had substantial parts in The Fugitive, Star Trek, Batman, The FBI, and others. I was asked to audition four times, and they didn’t seem much interested and said I looked too old and they hadn’t planned on a black actor.” LLOYD HAYNES

“How could I turn my love for flying into an educational project that would encourage minority and undermotivated kids to consider the many opportunities available in aviation?

HAPPY MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. DAY March on Washington August 28, 1963

Five years before Room 222, Lloyd Haynes desired to add his support to Martin Luther King’s vision. Lloyd contacted two close friends despite the opposition of old familiar foes, the Ku Klux Klan, and another white supremacist group. Lloyd and his friends booked passage on a train to Washington in the face of persistent warnings and threats of personal violence. “To take a stand for what a person believes in is a freedom for all human beings. So I will stand in peace.”
They marched from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial among an estimated 250 thousand people. In later years, many people that Lloyd would come to know, admire, and work with attended the Walk: Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Mahalia Jackson, Harry Belafonte, Diahann Carroll, Ossie Davis, Sammy Davis Jr., Lena Horne, Paul Newman, Sidney Poitier, Josephine Baker, and Rosa Parks. https://www.facebook.com/lloydhaynesroom222/ #BOOK
