When it comes to predicting sports and outcomes, you never know what'll happen. Either you'll look like a genius or you'll look silly. With that in mind, can you recall any instances where: 1. Someone in the media made a prediction that went good/bad 2. You made a prediction that went good/bad A few examples of both: Type no. 1- the media pretty much proclaiming Dallas the 2008-09 NFC Champions before the season started. We all know how that went. Also, Sports Illustrated picking the Rams to reach Super Bowl XXV- they couldn't even reach .500. (OTOH, S.I. did pick the Blackhawks to win the Cup in their NHL Preview last season) Type no. 2- I remember njtank on his Sports E-Cyclopedia site was perfect in predicting every series in the 2006 NBA Playoffs. Personally, I went against the grain in picking the Cardinals to beat the Panthers in the 2008-09 NFC Divisional Playoffs- something that pretty much few did when that game was set to commence.
