During the football season my friends and I have “stupid dollar bets”. Crazy, out there crap that almost never happens, but are worth throwing a dollar on, like “I bet in the second half we’ll see someone’s shoe fly off” or “The point total of this game will exceed 60”
I don’t want to get that detailed here…but let’s make some NUTS predictions based on past experience and personality.
Firstly, and most important, I’m predicting my boyfriend, Kerry Wood will not only win 20 games, but throw a no hitter.
I also predict** Ken Griffey Jr.** will suffer a season ending injury before June, and subsequently retire.
Back to Kerry, I predict a bloody, Nolan Ryan-like fight between Kerry and Roger Clemens
and, for my way out there bet:
I predict there will be an opening day game called on account of snow.
Tampa has the best hockey team in the league this year, I don’t think their stadium has ever been sold out. People in this area just do NOT support their teams, not even at the college or high school level. :shrug:
My prediction: Devil Rays will not finish last in their division. (Would that be the first time?).
Kerry Wood with a 22-8 record will remind us of Steve Carlton’s first season with the Phillies when he went 27-10 for a last-placed team that only won 59 games. The no hitter predicted in the OP will be followed by hitting two of the first three batters he faces next game to give him 24 for the season.
