Would You Make Up Your Minds Already?

I listen to a lot of sports talk radio. Last week the so-called experts were talking about how the Colts were going to run wild on New England, that the Pats' secondary was a mess and couldn't stop that potent offense. So wrong. Now this week, a lot of the discussion centered around whether this New England team was the greatest in NFL history. Again, I'm no football expert. But I ask the question, how can a team look so beatable, even ripe to be picked (per the Idiot Kicker), and the next week morph in to the greatest team in the 80 some year history of the league? Beatable seven days ago, unbeatable now? And we're supposed to take any of this seriously (like we should take football seriously anyway)? The one thing I hate about sports right now is the hype, hype, hype, and no accountability for statements. No one remembers from one week to the next what ludicrous statements are made. These people try to be so bold with their commentary to one up the next guy, but they lose any credibility when they are so often shown to be non-expert in their touted field of expertise.

As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his folly.(Proverbs 26:11). I can't wait to hear these people next week if Pittsburgh wins Sunday. No wait, I can wait to hear them. "Greatest upset of all time, and I saw it coming", will probably be the mantra. Be prepared to laugh out loud.
