Hoping To Be Proved Wrong Just Once More

Hoping To Be Proved Wrong Just Once More


There has only been one time in my life where I have wanted to be wrong more than I do right now, and that day I was right. That day was February 3rd, 2008, when my New England Patriots fell to the New York Giants in the Super Bowl, ending their perfect season and forever making them the biggest punch line in sports. I was terrified of the Giants and felt they would gave the Patriots trouble, I was right.

I find myself ironically reversed here, rooting against a Boston team that I am beginning to feel has the Lakers’ number. Before the series began I felt it would go seven games. After the first three games of the series I stated my belief that the team’s would trade wins until the Lakers ultimately took it in Game 7. Heading into Game 5 with the series tied 2-2 I also stated that I felt the winner of Game 5 would ultimately win the series and the championship. After Boston finished off a pathetic Lakers opposition 92-86, they were heading out west one win from their 18th title and adding another chapter in their storied dominance over the Los Angeles Lakers.
