Here is one of my major problems with Mike and Chris, they talk about things that have yet to happen in sports with an air of certainty. As two people who have been working in sports and watching sports as long as they have shouldn't they know that nothing is guaranteed? On today's show Mike spoke about the Cleveland Indians ace and said "Sabithia is going to come back and pitch well." Then 10 seconds later in talking still about the Indians said "Sabathia is going to come back and pitch well, there is NO QUESTION ABOUT IT."
No question about it? Was there no question that the Yankees were going to win after being up 3-0 on the Red Sox? No question that Georgetown was going to beat Villanova? Nothing drives me more crazy about Mike and Chris than when they speak about sports in terms of certainties. Also, if Sabathia tanks the rest of the way, will Mike come out and apologize for it and say he was wrong? Own up to his own mistake? Doubtful.
Mike and Chris, you don't know the future. Sports happens in real time, and you have been around long enough to know that it's fairly unpredictable. Teams come back from being down 3-0, an undefeated team loses to an unheralded one with a shaky QB in the Super Bowl. Stop speaking as if you know the future, will ya please!!!
