Two Triumphal Entries?

Came across this intriguing thought by Marcus Borg, in The Meaning of Jesus:  Two Visions, a book he co-wrote with N.T. Wright.  He doesn’t provide any references to back up this claim, but it’s an amazing contrast if it really happened, and highlights Jesus’ threat to Caesar.  Describing Jesus’ “Triumphal Entry,” as recorded by Mark, Borg writes:  “At approximately the same time, the Roman governor Pilate, with all the pomp and power of empire, would have been entering Jerusalem from the west at the head of a squadron of Roman cavalry” (81).
