Look, I am not trying to gloat when I point this out:
I predicted that the Magic would beat the Cavaliers back on April 16 (scroll down if you click through)!
I am not gloating. I am simply joining ranks with my man Charles Barkley. Last week, he also predicted the dethronement of King James.
As you can see below, my fellow prognosticator took a lot of abuse. He was humble and understated. He stuck to his guns:
Pass the Twinkies, brother! We are one game away from utter vindication!
I was hoping that Dwight Howard would clean LeBron’s clock.
Superman decided to take it one step further. He broke LeBron’s clock.
How about a Magic-Nuggets Finals?
Pope John Paul II was born on May 18, 1920.
He would have turned 89 today.
May he rest in peace.
It won’t be long before we will stop praying for him and start praying to him.
…The Lebron-Dwight Howard matchup is on! Will Superman be able to clean Lebron’s clock? Here’s hoping.
I prepared an eight-page thematic synthesis of the homilies and talks our Holy Father gave during his visit to the United States last year.

…At his funeral, Fr. Bill Finch–known to many as a gruff, intimidating man–was called a “peep.” This reminded me that:
You know your pretensions to being an art connoisseur are phony when your favorite 20th-century American painting is reduced to this:
…Meanwhile, I just heard that my man K.G. may not play in the NBA post-season. A knee injury has plagued him all year.
This is a bitter disappointment for Preacher.
Garnett was my hero last June, when he and the Celtics put the then-hated Kobe Bryant in his place.
(Since then, Kobe became my man when he went to China.)
No Garnett means a tough May and June for Preacher.
…Though perhaps Dwight Howard could be this year’s hero.
If the Magic meet the Cavaliers, Howard could clean LeBron’s clock. Which would be sweet! We shall see…
After the Redskins beat the Detroit Lions this afternoon, John Riggins declared on ESPN Radio that the Redskins are “a mediocre, an average team.”
Cannot agree with him. To quote from the strange McDonald’s Monopoly commercial with Dwight Howard: The Redskins have mad skills.
Perhaps the Redskins lack ‘perfect focus.’ There is no doubt that the ‘Skins have a maddening tendency to march down the field, and then not put the ball in the endzone.
But winning games by hook or by crook counts as a mad skill. In fact, it is the most important skill in football.
The exciting thing is this: We play the 5-2 Pittsburgh Steelers next Monday night, November 3, the day after All Souls Day. Yeah, boy: Bring it on!
This WILL be an acid test of the mediocrity or non-mediocrity of the 6-2 Redskins. Monday Night Football. FedEx Field. 6-2 vs. 5-2. NFC vs. AFC. A huge game.
Time to start getting siked.
