The Expectations Game


Politicians could learn a thing or two from the master of the 'expectations game,' Golden State Warriors coach Don Nelson, who had this to say of the league-leading Dallas Mavericks' chances of fending off an 0-2 start to their series:

"I think they'll do just fine the second game, they'll be dominant as they should be, and they'll probably mop us up, you know what I mean? We've got a better chance to get hit by lightning than to win tomorrow night."

Barack Obama should have been saying the same thing a couple weeks ago about his chances of out-raising Hillary.

Personal prediction: Jason Richardson goes bonkers tonight, but the Mavs still eke out the win.
