Super Bowl Samaritan: Conservative Entrepreneur Makes Veteran’s Football Dreams Come True

For some in Atlanta, the Super Bowl is a major headache. For others, it is an opportunity to show their gratitude and support for our brave men and women in uniform.

Super Bowl

While the NFL continues its downward spiral into bizarre, political theater, the Super Bowl still means something to many Americans.

This is, after all, a spectacle to behold, especially here in the city of Atlanta, Georgia:  Home of the world’s busiest airport, Coca Cola, and traffic like you wouldn’t believe.  In order to make this entire event a success, there are millions of moving parts and people involved.

At Hartsfield-Jackson International, a well-timed compromise on the government shutdown brought security back up to its full force, just in time for the rapid influx of fans…many of whom will be rooting for the New England Patriots. The Pat’s stunning comeback win against the Falcons a few Super Bowls ago is still fresh in the mind here in the “city too busy to hate”.

Coca Cola’s confusing situation is bizarre for Atlantans too, as Super Bowl sponsor Pepsi has had a massive presence in the city this week.

The people of Atlanta are fiercely loyal to Coke, as demonstrated by the offer below:

While the above exchange is most certainly in jest, it just goes to show how we feel about our soda down here.

Now, an Atlanta area entrepreneur has decided to make one man’s Super Bowl dream come true.

From a recent press release:

On August 9, 2011, Army SPC Matthew Leyva’s life changed forever. While on patrol in Afghanistan he stepped on a pressure plate IED. He lost both his legs and several fingers on each hand. He spent two months in a coma and his recovery took more than two years.

Matt Leyva will be headed to the Super Bowl thanks to Romulus Marketing CEO Brandon Vallorani.

Now to acknowledge his service and sacrifice while defending America, Brandon Vallorani, CEO of Romulus Marketing LLC (Dallas, Georgia), is taking SPC Leyva on the trip of a lifetime.

That’s right; Vallorani is taking SPC Leyva to the Super Bowl.

SPC Leyva is going on an all expense paid trip to Atlanta that includes tickets to Sunday’s Big Game.

Brandon Vallorani learned about SPC Leyva’s sacrifice through the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, who gave the double-amputee Purple Heart recipient a mortgage-free smart home in 2017.

The Tunnel to Towers Foundation is named after firefighter Stephen Siller who laid down his life to save others on 9/11. The Foundation supports the military, first responders, and their families. Through the Smart Home Program, the Foundation builds smart homes that enable our most catastrophically injured veterans to live more independent lives. To date, the Foundation has delivered, started construction or is in the design stage of a total of 75 homes.

This isn’t Vallorani’s first foray into giving, either.

As a proclaimed Compassionate Conservative, Brandon Vallorani and Romulus Marketing LLC have donated to a number of causes including 4Ocean, Charity:Water and other veteran groups.

“Our Mission at Romulus Marketing is to put our money where our mouth is,” says COO and donation manager Liz Martin. “We fully believe that the citizens of our country have a duty to privately contribute to charitable causes, and our hearts are particularly devoted to causes that help our veterans.”

Upon learning about Tunnel to Towers mission “Partnering with Tunnel to Towers was a no-brainer,” says Vallorani. “I am forever grateful for veterans like Army SPC Matthew Leyva who made a great sacrifice to protect our nation and our freedoms. My family can live in peace because he was willing to put his life on the line. Taking Matt to the Big Game is one small way we could show our gratitude.”

Romulus Marketing has also made a financial commitment to further reach of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.

If a man as ridiculous as Joe Biden can ascend to vice president of the United States then anything is possible, kids. On Saturday, Biden told a story of the time he ran into a gang leader named “Corn Pop.” Check this out… This is BIZARRE!

Corn Pop was waiting by Biden’s car “with three guys and straight razors. Not a joke.” “And I looked at him, but I was smart then, I said first of all, I said when I tell you to get off the board you get off the board, and I’ll kick you out again, but I shouldn’t have called you Esther Williams, I apologize for that,” Biden said, revealing Corn Pop was stunned by the apology and decided to not attack him. Reactions: This is the weirdest story I’ve ever heard a politician tell. Not to mention it’s completely made up.

Omar Just Compared Migrant Detention Centers to ‘Slave Camps In Africa During the Slave Trade’

And she’ll get away with it…

Ilhan Omar probably thinks Ilhan Omar might just be the kindest, most intelligent member of Congress. She’d be wrong. Not only is Omar a radical anti-Semite who has shown that she doesn’t love America nor Israel, but she’s also kind of a [redacted]. Check this out… WATCH: Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar compares migrant detention centers to slave camps in Africa during the slave trade. https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1173023974235746304?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173023974235746304&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F432519-ilhan-omar-compares-illegal-alien-detention-centers-to-slave-camps-during-slave-trade%2F Omar will continue to say silly things so long as liberals control the mainstream media. And that doesn’t look like it’s going to change anytime soon. From RealClear Politics: Rep. Ilhan Omar addressed controversial comments about slavery, U.S. border patrol, and 9/11, and decried the “implied intent” that critics impose on her statements. “I’m only controversial because people seem to want the controversy,” Omar said. She also responded to Nicholas Haros, the son of a 9/11 victim who spoke out against Omar at the 18th-anniversary event in New York while wearing a “some people did something” T-shirt. “9/11 was an attack on all Americans. It was an attack on all of us, and I certainly could not understand the weight of the pain that the families of the victims of 9/11 must feel,” Omar said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVrrM2wenhk
