    Sept. '99: ESPN the Mag joked that Kurt Warner would lead the Rams to the Super Bowl

    Going off of a vague memory, I managed to track down and order the '99 NFL Season Preview issue of ESPN the Magazine.

    This was published on September 20th, 1999, after Warner played one modest game (309 yds, 3 TDs, 2 INTs vs. the Ravens).

    That led to them sarcastically including this in the index:

    "Four Months From Now"

    (The pg. 88 article said nothing about Warner)

    Thought you guys might find this funny.

    People still listen and read ESPN with all their "experts" giving expert advise...who would have thunk

    ESPN has this incredible talent for finding "experts" who are terribly gifted at losing. If their "experts" where that truly gifted, one would expect to find them on the sidelines coaching or in corporate offices as GMs.

    Is it me or doesn't it seem odd and a paradox that an expert should be someone who is or was successefuland not a bad punch line to a joke?
