Let's face it; predicting the future is like navigating through darkness. We are all in the dark, blindfolded, yet we march forward, trying to position ourselves correctly while evading unforeseen challenges, akin to black swans or anvils dropping from the sky.
Today, in America, millions will wager billions on the Super Bowl. The game's outcome remains uncertain until it unfolds, leaving us unable to alter our bets.
Life, much like the game, may be decided by anticipation—a force unseen until circumstances reveal it. We often find ourselves heading in a certain direction without the distraction of thought or vision, arriving at the right or wrong place at the right or wrong time.
Let's review.....right place at right time, right place at wrong time, wrong place at right time and wrong place at the wrong time and here comes the ricochet
History is filled with instances of anticipation, sometimes fueled by fear, which tends to be false pride. Let's skip fear for a while and embrace fearlessness.
Though the game is unseen now, I can check my ability to maneuver in the dark by revealing what intuition has gathered and anticipation has filtered through current information and past experiences.
Both teams boast compelling stories that suggest future headlines. Here are two possibilities: "TAYLOR REJOICES AS CHIEFS WIN" and "MR. IRRELEVANT COMES THROUGH FOR NINERS." Countless other headlines might be written, but the future remains hidden.
My gut leans towards the Chiefs, but my heart hopes for the Niners. The common belief is that the advantage lies with the quarterback, and Mahomes, by common knowledge, gives the Chiefs a significant edge over Purdy. Our hearts often favor the underdog, but in this case, we have dueling underdogs. The 49ers are slight favorites, yet Brock Purdy is a considerable underdog against Mahomes.
Since Purdy is the bigger dog, I'll go with the Niners.
The truth will manifest itself before our eyes in six hours, presenting its version of reality, free from the "should haves" and "could haves" that linger in our memories, reminders of what we saw when we were blind.
