The Lyrics

These are only a few of the contests I'd schedule.
'85 Bears and the '92 Cowboys
That is a matchup to make you say wow, boy
Big Red Machine and the '98 Yanks
Those were two teams with some gas in their tanks

Wimbledon serving up Borg versus Laver
That is a contest I really would savor
Jack playing Tiger with both in their prime
That is a matchup that I'd call sublime

Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan
Playing one on one
But also those Lakers contesting those Bulls
That's my idea of fun

Pele on one side, Ronaldo across
Wonder which one would show us he's the boss?
'96 Red Wings and '89 Flames
Both of those teams sure knew how to win games

All I need to make it happen
Is a time machine
And the number one matchup that I'd like to see
Is Cassius against Ali.

'85 Bears wrap up Troy & Emmitt. '98 Yanks dismantle the Machine in five games. Borg at Wimbledon and MAYBE at the French, but Laver in Melbourne (where the stadium is named for him) and Flushing Meadow. Jack at any course, even Augusta. Jordan's Bulls did beat Magic's Lakers in the '91 Finals, but that was post-Kareem. With Kareem, Lakers in 6. All Pele would have to do to beat Ronaldo is speak French, as Les Bleus seem to have his number. Seeing as how the '96 Wings didn't even make the Finals, I'd say put the '97 version up, and they take the '89 Flames in 5. Clay vs. Ali? Why not Lew & the '71 Bucks vs. Kareem & the '80 Lakers? In each case, the older, wiser man would find a way to win. I'd still like to do a virtual rematch, my '95 Devils against Mark (Lex Luthor) Messier and the '94 Rangers. Oh, by the way, good parody.

I knew I could count on a comment from you on this one, Michael. I can buy into most of your analysis, but the Machine and Yanks would go seven games.

Jack beating me? Anywhere? Dream on. If he could hit a sand wedge, he might have a chance. But he couldn't. I'd crush him, anywhere, anytime.
