Admit it. You want to believe.
The same way you want to someday comb a unicorn's mane, chat with a leprechaun and sit behind the plate at a Royals-Cubs World Series, you'd like to think these guys claiming they will unveil a real Bigfoot on Friday aren't full of Sasquatch dung.
Yet (or is it Yeti?) the chances don’t look good.
