Even Nostradamus couldn’t have predicted this! (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

R.J. Lewis, a color commentator for PlayOn! Sports, just might be the Nostradamus of athletic broadcasting.

During a recent game between Atlanta‘s Douglass High and Rockmart High, one in which Rockmart led 54-0, Lewis predicted that the offensive snap would be bobbled and that the defense would scoop it up for its only score.

And I’ll be damned if that very thing didn’t happen on the next play from scrimmage.

Rockmart’s running back took the hand-off from his quarterback and fumbled it seconds later. Waiting for it was a Douglass defensive player who scooped it up and ran it into the end zone. This prevented the blow-out (sort of) and left the final score at 54-6.

Lewis was shocked by the turn of events. “I do not have a crystal ball,” he told listeners. “I do not have a Magic 8 Ball, but that just happened.”

Talk about beating the odds!
