Happy to Be Wrong

Wow, if these are the results every time I predict that the team or player for whom I root will lose, then I will start predicting disaster at every step of the way!  To review, I foolishly predicted this about the President’s Cup in golf: “I see the International squad, a big underdog, winning a close battle. Woods and Stricker are exhausted, Mickelson’s back is hurting, Kenny Perry’s mother just died, and Hunter Mahan can’t seem to actually win a tourney and can’t possibly be as good for a third straight team competition as he was in his first two.” Uh, wrong. Woods went 5-0, Mickelson 4-0-1, and Stricker 4-1. The U.S. romped. Hunter Mahan and Kenny Perry played perfectly fine, as well.The Americans won big.  I hereby eat verbal crow. (I add, as Maxwell Smart would say: “…and loving it!”)

Actually, you see, it was reverse psychology. I knew all along that our American guys would win…. Well, would you believe I had an inkling we might pull it out by the skin of our teeth?… Or would you believe I had a hunch our guys wouldn’t fall into San Francisco Bay as a result of an earthquake?

I missed it by this much. Or maybe by a lot. Sorry about that, chief. That was the second biggest predicting error I’ve ever made…..

And I am so, so glad. Congratulations, American squad!
