    Common would find any positive statement preposterous. He is nothing if not predictable. I think he can be funny, but he is pretty lazy in that he has been doing the same shtick for years and after awhile you can predict what most of his reactions will be. He would do better if he did not have to fill three hours.

    However, I still have faith in John's ability to be preposterous.

    The last 3 seasons might have not been fun to watch them in June/July/August/September (for some people), but John's statement is a fact in my book...

    Sorry.

    I like Common but wish he would retire this bit. It comes across as forced and reaching . It can be just as presposterous to be overly negative as it is to be overly positive.

    The Twins rotation is "top heavy"

    Voting on it now

    I love the PST. There's always a few that aren't as preposterous as Common suggests, mostly due to his unfamiliarity with some aspects of various sports. Still, most are quite rediculous, and sorry to say, but John's "top heavy" rotation statment is pretty funny.

    It can't be top heavy, the Twins missed out on Bartolo Colon.

    Good luck to John, but Kevin Gorg is a juggernaut in this competition. I'm predicting a Gorg vs. Gorg in the final.

    I shoulda went to Vegas and put my money where my mouth was.

    Gorg takes the championship.

    Lost handily to Gorg in the finals.

    No shame in that.

    And personally I'd like to see them limit the field to quotes about sports, or least quotes from people in sports. Then you could eliminate obvious "winners" that are just too sad to fit the spirit of the tournament, like any entertainment person comparing the gravity of their field to military or EMS service, for example.

    Truth be told, if a truly accurate assessment was made of a year-long sample of preposterous statements, celebrity entertainers and politicians would flood the zone.

    I am saddened to hear that John did not win, but I am confident he will continue to say things that will make him a strong contender in future tournaments.
