We need a new rule of this forum. Under no circumstances should any poster ever suggest a sweep or assurances of victory. Anytime someone does we always get roasted by whoever we're playing.

:lol: i hope you really dont believe that what we say here makes any difference in the outcome of a game

Wade Boggs didnt eat fried chicken before every game for nothing. Got him to the hall of fame. We change posters anytime we have a bad series, we carry our weight in this battle around here!

Being superstitious is fine but to honestly believe that their success is based on what we type on a Messageboard is out there. 

I really hope that you don't think he's 100% serious.

He does the same thing with people making threads, if we win the series then the same person make the next thread.
