    Berard was dumb as a bag of hammers, no doubt. But that ain't necessarily a bad thing, and I've known plenty around the rinks who weren't exactly Phi Beta Kappa in the classroom but were dynamic and brilliant hockey players.

    When I saw Christian Dube and Pavel Rosa at the Memorial Cup in Hull (1997), I figured both were destined for NHL superstardom. Uhhh, yeah right.

    Harold "The Show" Arceneaux, I thought he would have a decent pro career.
    DaJuan Wagner also looked like a for sure future All-Star. What ever happened to his career any way.

    I thought Mike McMahon was going to be the answer for the Lions.

    It could be worse. You could be an Eagles fan who booed at the selection of McNabb over Williams.

    Wagner developed colitis and had his colon removed. Was released by Golden State in November.

    Thought Michael Westbrook would be a star.
    Never thought Walter Berry would amount to anything.

    I'll admit it. I didn't like the Steelers' decision to trade up to select a smallish strong safety with a history of concussions in the 1st round of the draft.

    Not that I mind Troy Polamalu proving me wrong on a regular basis.

    I was wrong about this year's Lakers. I thought they were going to suck. Phil Jackson can coach.

    The secret formula to Phil Jackson's success is...*drumroll*.....

    To sit back. And chill.

    P.S. Same goes with Jim Torre.

    And when that doesn't work... it doesn't hurt to have the best players either. Funny how it correlates with when they have won.

    Yeah but you got to give him some credit for taking that Lakers team to the playoffs and almost knocking out the Suns last year.

    anyone remember the hype Felipe Lopez, the 6'5 SG got when he arrived at St. John's? I think he ended up an average 4-year college player and didn't make the league
