Nick Thompson’s prediction of this weekend’s Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley is somewhat similar to the time I was in my office and published his previous prediction to the main event of UFC 126. The sun was exuberant that day and birds sung a harmonious tune that filled the room with joyous exhilaration. I received a note from my uncle that day which said the black berries in the garden are ripe to harvest. In my younger days, tending the farm was a monotonous task that I used to absolutely abhor. However, now that Thaddeus inherited the property adjacent from our house, life began to take a different direction.
Check out Nick Thompson’s coherent Sherdog prediction of Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley, and be amazed.
“This fight is somewhat similar to the time I was in my cornfield and heard a whisper, “If you build it, he will come.” Pursuant to the whisper, much to the disbelief of my neighbors, I plowed under my cornfield and built a baseball field. Thereafter Shoeless Joe Jackson and the seven other players banned in the 1919 Black Sox scandal, despite all of them having died many years prior, emerged from my corn and began to play baseball on the field. Some people could see them, some couldn’t — including my brother-in-law, who thought I was nuts. Despite the field driving me into bankruptcy, there was no way I was going to get rid of the baseball field. In fact, I followed the whisper, yet again, when it led me to take famed 1960s activist author Derrick Noble, who had since become a recluse, to a baseball game. At the game, we both had a vision that led us to visit Chisholm, Minn., where a minor league ball player-turned-doctor had died many years prior. On the way home from Chisholm, Derrick and I picked up a hitchhiker; a young ball player — who, somehow, happened to be the one and same ballplayer-turned-doctor who had died many years prior. Once back at my farm, the ball player-turned-doctor joined the other ball players. All of it was truly unbelievable and, in fact, many did not believe it. For example, my brother-in-law still could not see the ball players and was very upset that the field was driving us into bankruptcy. He was also upset that my daughter could see the ballplayers and thought that we were making her delusional. During a confrontation about the bankruptcy, my brother-in-law accidentally dropped my daughter and she began to choke. Off of the field walked the ball player-turned-doctor and he was transformed from the young kid into the old doctor. He then saved my daughter’s life by removing the hot dog stuck in her throat. My brother-in-law could then finally see the players and understood why we were not selling. Derrick Noble was invited into the corn from where the dead players were coming to see what was on the other side. And then I was rewarded for following the voice. My father, a huge baseball fan, who had passed away many years prior, was catching for the team. I got to meet him and play catch — something I refused to do as a kid and always regretted.”
I can only imagine that if we interviewed Nick ‘The Goat’ Thompson, every answer would be an elongated reference to classical American literature. Basically what I’m trying to say is that it would be the greatest interview in the history of interviews. [Source]
