Sports Predictions for Late '07 - '08
It's debatable whether this column should appear on the Entertainment page or the Sports page. I am not a professional sportswriter, and by the end of 2007 or into 2008 these predictions could be pretty hilarious. But nevertheless, the writers at XEKE.com aren't afraid to go out on a limb (and unlike the kook-liberal blogs, we can recognize our own insanity when it bears out!).
First things first:
- The Cubs will not win the World Series.
Now for the actual predictions:
- Brady Quinn will actually be decent quarterback, prompting the Dolphins to fire their head coach and general manager for passing on him and choosing Ted Ginn, Jr., who will be limited to just six games this season.
- Joakim Noah will be an early first-round pick (not a Lottery pick) and will be as productive as. . .Jeff Foster (great hustler, good rebounder, that's it).
- Oden over Durant to the Memphis Grizzlies.
- Yanks, Tribe, Angels, Mets, Cards, Giants win their divisions. Tigers over Mets in the World Series.
- Calvin Johnson (WR, Det.) wins offensive Rookie of the Year, Jamaal Anderson (DE, Atl.) wins defensive Rookie of the Year.
We can recognize our own insanity when it bears out!
- Roger Federer will keep wining titles.
- Same for Tiger.
- The Chargers will win the Super Bowl, further cementing in the minds of football fans in Cleveland, Kansas City and San Diego: Can Marty Schotenheimer ever win the big one.
- Randy Moss will self-destruct in New England, because he's not a character guy.
- Jeff Gordon's early success will push teammate Jimmie Johnson to repeat as Nextel Cup Champion.
