Far Fetched Fridays

 Every friday, we bring you a bold prediction that we think could come to fruition. We call it Far Fetched Fridays and here are our prediction.
 

A goalkeeper has only ever won the Ballon d'Or once, and honestly, I'm not sure it counts in my book. That goalkeeper was Lev Yashin in 1963, who played during a period when Russia was still called the Soviet Union. Yashin's games were barely ever broadcasted to the world, and he only ever played in Russia for Dynamo Moscow because...

If you haven't seen Victor Wembanyama highlights yet, then you either live under a rock or are not on NBA Twitter. Such has been the rise of the French-18-year-old teenager, who many experts label the best prospect since LeBron James. Those viral highlights include Wembanyama using his 7'9" wingspan to devour shots out of thin air, galloping down...

The Oklahoma City Thunder won the draft. This was the first year in my Thunder fandom where I was nervous about the draft. This was going to be the make-or-break it for the rebuild. For Thunder fans in the last ten years, the draft meant drafting raw athletic long-term projects with later picks. Players like Josh Huestis, Terrance Ferguson, and...

Well, we are in the middle of June during a World Cup year, but unfortunately, we have no games to watch because of FIFA's decision to give the tournament to Qatar. But, with all 32 teams decided, there is plenty of time to make predictions for the tournament that will now be played this November. Since losing to the Czech...

When asked to explain the decision after the game, Head Coach Monty Williams told reporters, "it's Internal," Is this the dramatic climax to the drama that started after last year's finals...

With the 4th pick of the 2nd round, the struggling New York Jets selected running back Breece Hall out of Iowa State. The soon to be 21 years old unanimous college All-American was the first running back selected in the draft, and I believe he has the talent to lead the NFL in rushing as a rookie.

Since the beginning of the calendar year, we've all known that Watford and Norwich would get relegated back to the Championship. The focus has been on what team would be the third to get the drop, with Leeds taking pole position after letting Bielsa go. And their replacement, Jesse Marsch, was hired into a nearly impossible situation. Leed had just...

Predicting a team to have an all-star shouldn't be an overly bold take. Most squads have at least one or more players that either are surefire all-stars or are rising stars. Unfortunately for the Magic, they don't really have any obvious choices for either of those types of players. They also don't have a great track record when it comes...
