So Much For Sports "Experts"

I'm back in Florida from Kona, and beat, after several airplane flights, some in miserable seating, since we went standby to get earlier flights. More tomorrow.

Meanwhile, marvel at the precognition of the ESPN prognosticators last week, all of whom picked New York over Detroit. Many of them did predict that New York wouldn't make it to the Series, but none of them imagined that it would be the Tigers who would knock them out.

[Update a few minutes later]

I should add that there was something poignant and weird about standing in a Honolulu airport last night watching (but not able to listen to) CNN announcing a possible nuclear weapon test by North Korea. Almost a Pearl Harborish feeling to it. Brought on partly by the fact that I'd visited the Arizona Memorial last week while talking to government folks there.

I can talk out of my took all I please, but I don't get paid for it.

and looking at those predictions? CLEARLY none of them watched baseball during the season, except for the first guy, and he had a FRIGGEN STROKE! AFTER THE ALL STAR GAME!
