Did Sparky Know?

From 1987, this strip has Charlie Brown mentioning he'll probably kick the football in November 2000.  The strip was cancelled by 2000 and creator Charles Schulz mentioned, "Poor ol' Charlie Brown never even got to kick that football."  Had he continued, might he have?  I doubt it.  Winning isn't funny and, of course, with Charlie Brown's luck, he can't have ever kicked that football and, of course also, the strip ended before he ever found out...
