    A buddy of mine and I were talking at work the other day about some things we simply can't believe to be 100% true. So, I thought I'd see if the Arena could join me in a list of things that are true, no matter how much they shouldn't be.

    So, let's just post them one at a time. I'll start us off to give everyone an idea of what I'm talking about:

    1. Rex Grossman has the exact same career record as a starting quarterback in the Super Bowl as Dan Marino.

    5. Since 1998, every team in the N.L. West has won a pennant, save for one..................the L.A. Dodgers.

    They beat Boston!: 2009-2010 L.A. Lakers: Back-to-Back World Champions :cool:

    Since 1980, there have only been eight different NBA champions. That is just wrong.

    Yeah. The L*kers, Celtics, Spurs and Bulls combined for 23 of those 30 titles. *sigh*

    7. In the NFL, there are four teams that have two things in common. The Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, and the Seattle Seahawks all have team names that start with the same letter as their respective cities/state. They have also never won a Super Bowl. (Buffalo doesn't need to. Go Jets)



    EDIT:I fixed it.[face_peace] Thank you for pointing that out for me, I never would have caught that until tommorrow.

    Brett Favre's stats in his last two overtime playoff games.

    0-2, 0 yds, 0 TDs, 2 INTs.

    Alright, I guess that's not all that unbelievable.
