Sometimes you just have to concede, “How can you argue with that?”
This is the new mascot of Scotland’s Partick Thistle soccer team. Again, how can you argue with that choice of a mascot… when you don’t know what it is? The announcement of the team simply indicated that this is Kingsley and he will be attending all game days.
It looks to me that someone in their marketing department just decided that it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. Pretty soon, this will be an acceptable mascot. For now, it will get a lot of headlines. This is the mascot, they say, and they just move forward.
This past weekend, it was well known that the golfers at the U.S. Open were complaining about the putting greens. One of the TV announcers recited an old quote from Arnold Palmer. He basically said that when he would walk into a golf locker room and hear golfers complaining about the course, he knew that he would beat them.
In the practice of law, sometimes a lawyer may find it real easy to see all the problems in their case. In fact, if you believed the defense, the case is not worth pursuing.

To some extent, I combine the thoughts of the mascot and the quote of Arnold Palmer. Sometimes, you just move forward. “Assess-adapt-overcome”. There’s only one reason that you know that you will win your case. You listen to your client… and you know.
