Yesterday’s news. Can I believe my eyes?
A couple NFL players from the Oakland Raiders, Tim Brown and Jerry Rice, come clean.
They say Super Bowl XXVII (2002), which our local Tampa Bay Buccaneers won, was fixed.
Now, I know there are a lot of “purists” who are unable to fathom how a professional sport can be fixed. But it’s not all that difficult, in my book. Even more so, “fixes” don’t start in the professional leagues.
Case in point was Ronnie Harmon, the Iowa running back who fumbled inside the 10-yard line, more than once, in the Rose Bowl. I was a young college wrestler at the time, and when I saw the man who NEVER fumbled, cough up the ball three times when the Hawkeyes were close, I screamed at the tee-vee, “That SOB was paid off.”
Indeed, he was.
But that story took a good 10 years or so to emerge, after Harmon had already played in the NFL with the Buffalo Bills and San Diego Chargers.
Whether we’re talking about boxing, basketball, baseball, football, hockey or any other sport – there’s a way to fix the outcome.
I’ve had a few arguments with baseball folks over the years because they claim there’s no way to fix a baseball game. To this I now respond, “Okay, if that’s the case, clear Pete Rose of all charges, let him manage again and make him eligible for the Hall of Fame.”
Think about it. Why was Pete Rose banned from baseball for life? Because he bet on his own team.
Okay, what’s wrong with betting on your own team?
Hmmm. I’d say it’s because you can influence the outcome of the game.
You can fix a game without even playing in it. And that’s what the former Raiders boss is being accused of.
Over the past few years I’ve accurately predicted a lot of winners on the playing field. I’ve made predictions that absolutely sounded stupid. No one took me seriously. Until I won the bets.
Some of the most stunning predictions I made that came true were the Rays sweeping the Yankees in four-straight games while Boston fell to the Orioles, which put the Rays into the playoffs as a Wild Card.
Just last week a few friends called to ask me who would be going to the next Super Bowl. Without thinking I blurted out, the 49ers and the Ravens.
I was nuts. I was dead wrong. The Patriots were 67-0 at home with Tom Brady. There’s no way he could or would lose at home.
Well, he did.
Was the game fixed.
I don’t believe so – but you never know.
Now, I most certainly don’t claim to be right all the time. And no, I’m not going to help you pick winners in Vegas. I like to call games just for fun, and nothing more.
But you may wonder if this type of prediction-making is a skill you can develop or harness.
The answer is yes.
How do you do it.
By freeing your mind and body of tension and resistance. By being free to think the unthinkable, to let go and explore.
Next, you’ve got to be able to think in pictures. You’ve got to see things happening in your mind’s eye, before they happen.
Both of these skills can be developed by using the Zero Resistance Living System.
You follow the exercises that teach you how to give up resistance to the flow of life. You learn to practice Theatre of the Mind, wherein you explore your successful past experiences and imagine more of them coming to fruition in the future.
And you do all of this in the NOW.
You see the past in the NOW.
You see the future in the NOW.
And you relax and let go of tension in the NOW.
When you do this each day – after about a month or so, you start tuning into much more than what your goals are and how you can create them.
You start being able to sense and see what others don’t.
And that’s a mighty fine thing, don’t you think.
Well, right now you can get the entire Zero Resistance Living System for 75% off – along with 7 extraordinary bonuses that will brighten your day, making what some may call “miracles” begin to happen for you on a regular basis.
Explore the course and see for yourself. It’ll make a believer out of you.
P.S. If you want to “FIX” your future for the positive, then Zero Resistance Living is the key. If you imagine it – then it will come. And you won’t need anyone else to tamper with the score to make it happen. You let go of the resistance to life – and life gives you what you want.
