“And the Winner Is . . .” – 2022 “Run for the Roses”

UPDATE: It turned out that the only thing accurate about this reading was that Epicenter would make a strong showing. The problem was that I limited the population of likely winners to horses with short odds, and the actual winner, Rich Strike, was a long shot at 80-1 and one of the least likely contenders. … Continue reading “And the Winner Is . . .” – 2022 “Run for the Roses”

A “New-Style” NFL Gameplay Analysis

AUTHOR'S NOTE: This is the last of my sports posts for a while (I promise). As the old-time TV announcers used to say after a test of the Emergency Broadcasting System: "We now return to our regular program." In my last post I did a "retake" of a reading for a game between the Buffalo … Continue reading A “New-Style” NFL Gameplay Analysis

National Football League 2022 Season: Buffalo Bills Win-Loss Predictions

Interestingly, my prediction for the Chiefs-Patriots game hints that … Continue reading National Football Conference Championship: Saints vs. Rams

American Football Conference Championship: Chiefs vs. Patriots

Update: Well, now, as sportscaster Howard Cosell used to say in his trademark nasal whine, "How about that!" It turns out that Death reversed did in fact signify a sudden-death overtime, and the Chief's Hierophant reversed did mean they "didn't have a prayer." My scoring projection was on the low side but the overall complexion … Continue reading American Football Conference Championship: Chiefs vs. Patriots

Sporting Event Prediction: Lessons Learned

For roughly two years now I've been using tarot to attempt picking the winners and the comparative scores in sporting events. Needless to say, my track record until recently has been less than stellar. I started off with a bang, accurately predicting the regulation tie between the Patriots and the Falcons in the 2017 Super … Continue reading Sporting Event Prediction: Lessons Learned
