What Happens When you Don't Know Your Bible

You make comments like the following.

Memphis center Mike Dorsey said of his match up with vaunted Ohio State Center Greg Oden, "That it was like David and Goliath, and I'm Goliath."

What he meant was to put down Oden and be smart reversing the analogy--thinking of a 7 ft tall 260 lb. man as David not exactly the first thing that comes to mind.

Problem with analogy--who won that fight? David.

Dorsey words were indeed prophetic. Oden had 17 points and 9 rebounds and his team won a major victory while Dorsey scored 0 (that's goose-egg) points with 3 rebounds.

As Ohio State assistant coach Dan Peters said, "That was stupid. He didn't even know who won the fight between David and Goliath."

Has to go down in worst failed sports analogies along with Jason Kidd who upon being signed by the Dallas Mavericks said, "I'm going to turn this team around 360 degrees." Which is exactly what he did btw.
