Predicting the future is becoming our thing

Look I get it, we haven’t written in awhile. I understand that, it’s just that when I challenged Colbert to do more videos and he told me he was “more of a blog guy,” I thought that meant he’d actually write blogs. But nevertheless, this is important stuff.

Last week on the show, we hypothesized why Ben Simmons and Magic Johnson would want to meet up and talk outside of the “big guard talk” that was floated out there as a fake. I know it’s a lie, you know it’s a lie, so let’s not play games. Then, our producer Kelli brought up his relationship with Kendall Jenner as a reason why he might want to leave for LA come free agency in the summer of 2020.

The conversation landed on its head and we ended up discussing Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson. Now, last I heard was that Thompson cheated on Khloe, which in most relationships is a death sentence. Apparently the Kardashians just hand out second chances like Halloween candy and they were still together. I was lambasted, both on the show and via text, being told I needed to “keep up” with the Kardashians (never gonna happen).

And then all the sudden today news breaks from America’s #1 trusted news source, TMZ, that Tristan Thompson was once again caught cheating (this time with Kylie Jenner’s best friend) and that him and Khloe had broken up.

I just can’t help myself. Once a cheater, always a cheater. I knew it, the whole world just wasn’t ready for it. Look at Lance Armstrong. The man was juicing up before almost every Tour de France. What about Bill Belichick? Spygate AND Deflategate? These people just can’t stay away.

So while you look for the next big news or great take from somewhere else, just remember where the real foundation for your sports intake lies. Barry Trotz to the Islanders? We called it in the summer. The Ducks firing Randy Carlyle? Weeks ahead of that. Celtics turning their season around and being a force to be reckoned with? Maybe one of these days Colbert will look smart on that prediction…

But for now, understand we have no limits on our supernatural ability to see the future. What’s next? Guess you’ll just have to find out Thursday at noon.
