At The Finish Line…Where Only the Truth Matters

I called for the Steelers to win and Terrelle Pryor to have a good game for the Oakland Raiders. We got half the deal. I have to be careful when I put that stuff out there. My predictions and projections can be very powerful! David Ortiz . . . aka “Big Papi” is just that. The World Series MVP was on base 19 times in 6 games with a batting percentage of 683, the highest in history behind Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. Are you kidding me? And guess who got on base more? Yep, you guessed it – Barry Bonds! You forgot how great he was huh!?!?
