    So you said your personal pick was Volkanovski. So then do you just tailor your interpretations of the cards to back what you already have in your head?

    I see how there could be that temptation, but I do try to do my best to read the cards objectively. Of course being completely objective when interpreting archetypes and applying them to a situation with as many variables as a fight is fraught with peril lol. Sometimes the cards have a very obvious interpretation (for example for Holyfield I drew the 3 of swords "separation and heartache" and the eight of cups "decline of a matter." It would have been hard to spin these as being pro Holyfield, etc. For Laura Sanko I drew the High Priestess, the Ace of Cups, and the Knight of Pentacles, which mean (generally) "guardian of secret wisdom," "Eat, Drink, and Be Merry as Love Blossoms," and "Dependable and Useful" all pretty positive cards for a new broadcaster being paired with a veteran partner for the first time, etc. You get the idea. Little bit of A, little bit of B.

    Celebrating someone else's failure is... not a good look. Thanks for bumping the thread bud. Peace.

    So what you're saying is if Volk loses you and your bad juju are to blame and tarot's about as reliable as flipping a coin.

    Honestly it'd be worth it to be wrong just to annoy you that much more. It's that much fun. Thanks for contributing bud. ;)

    Lol. Thanks bud. I honestly don't know if the mods let me through as a sick joke, just to see me get flamed. Or if maybe there's one into tarot. Or maybe they're just open minded. I am after all talking about fights. When I talk about contender, I post there. Boxing, I post there, etc. Either way, I'm grateful to have the platform.

    Basically tarot's a write off as far as I'm concerned if Volk loses lad, don't let me down now.
