I predicted that the New England Patriots would win yesterday’s Super Bowl 37 to 28.
I was close. The final score was, in fact, 34 to 28, in the most epic game in history, despite the fact that I pulled mightily AGAINST the Patriots.
I ran across a side story that is worth sharing. It involves the way Donald and Melania Trump rallied around the owner of the Patriots, Robert Craft, when his wife died six years ago.
It reveals a human side to Donald Trump, a side that is difficult to get out to the public in light of the president’s antics. Here is Robert Craft’s story:
“In the toughest time in my life, he [Trump] was there for me when my beloved wife died five and half years ago. He came to the funeral with Melania. He’d visit me at my home… He called me once a week for a year. ‘How are you doing?’ I was really depressed, and he invited me to things, and he looked out after me.
Only four or five people did that for me, to that extent.
I’m loyal to my friends. I remember who the people are there when the tough times are there, and he did that for me.”
