The Four Game Winning Streak.

Posted By Cliff Tuttle | February 2, 2012

No. 805

Excuse my impertinence.  I refuse to get all stirred up predicting who is going to win on Sunday night.  I noticed during dinner that ESPN was overanalyzing the situation, as normal.  Could the Giants get to Brady?  Was Brady intimidated by something or other? I forget what.  Then they ask everybody down to cab drivers and  Carmelite Nuns to predict the score.

Truth is, either team could win and who wins will probably have more to do with luck than who came to play. Sports analysts are good at dreaming up convincing reasons why somebody won and somebody else lost, but you never hear them tell you the truth, that there is a whole lot of luck involved when both teams are at the top of their games (pronounced, “on winning streaks”).

It can be good entertainment, even great entertainment.  But don’t take it all too seriously. The way a playoff series is arranged, one team will end with a winning streak of four or five games.  It happens every year.  No big deal.
