This has been a bad week for the people I voted for.
My first pick was on "Dancing with the Stars" - I voted for Melissa Rycroft but thought that Gilles Marini deserved to win. But who won? The person I hadn't even considered - Shawn Johnson.
My second erroneous pick was on "American Idol". Adam Lambert was favored (on the polls and seemingly by the judges) throughout the contest. I voted for Adam but (I guess) not enough. Kris Allen, the underdog, won. Even Kris said that Adam should have won it. Go figure! Probably it doesn't matter if Adam won or not - here is one news story that gives some good reasons for that view.
So, my question here is did I play a part in the defeat of my favorites? Did I jinx them? I want to take responsibility for my actions, so maybe I need to quit voting - maybe even quit having favorites. What do you think?
