I get that the post is all over the place, but I'm still not understanding "hedge".
When I note that people bury "this team will lose early in the Tournament" responses in my Twitter mentions so they can dig them up later, I'm saying they're hedging against their feelings after a loss. If we win, they're happy. If we lose, they can say they were right (which makes them happy).
This article was not meant to be Que Será, Será, but if it was, what is that hedging against?
