I was just putting away odds and ends around my house and came across my daughter's Magic 8 Ball in her room. Succumbing to the temptation to ask it a question (and this being gameday,) I asked it the following... SOP: "Will the Quakes win at Columbus tonight?" 8: "My reply is no." Hmm... SOP: "Will the Quakes get shut out tonight?" 8: "My sources say no." SOP: "Will the Quakes lose by more than one goal?" 8: "It is a certainty." SOP: "Will the Quakes score an own goal?" 8: "You may rely on it." Disappointing. Now, in the interest of science and voodoo (or both) I allowed a 5 minute cooling-off period, then repeated the first question while standing in a different location. The results?!?... SOP: "Will the Quakes lose at Columbus tonight." 8: "Outlook hazy, try again." SOP: "Do you know what the f*** you're talking about when it comes to MLS?" 8: "My reply is no." Sounds like this 8 ball belongs on BS with us! GO QUAKES!!!
