Was I Right?

So going back to last year I looked at the predictions I made. Let's see which ones I was right and which ones I was wrong:

Nothing will change in Iraq.
Right there

Bush will try his best to stop the Democrats from getting anything done YET will blame them for not getting anything done.
Right there

The Media will continue to parade criminal Republicans (and occassional Democrats) on their talk shows meaning we will only get one point of view as always and it will be the wrong point of view.
Right there

The hype for the 2008 election will continue to be more then what it is.
Absolutely right there

The Super Bowl winner will be the Baltimore Ravens.
Wrong there

UCLA Basketball will make another run in the Tourney but will end up losing to Ohio State in the final four.
1/2 right there. They made it to the final four but lost to Florida again

USC Basketball will show signs of life even though no one shows up to their games to see.
Right. But not last year but they are this year. Mayo is great.

While another year of fear but no terror attacks.
Right there

Celebrities will continue to go through spouses like they go through their wardrobes and no one but the media will care like right now.
Right there

Bush will sacrifice more troops in Iran.
Wrong there. For now

There will be investigations on Bush and the most damning thing will be with his and Cheney's energy task force which will show beyond a shadow of a doubt that Bush has everything to do with the high gas prices because gas prices are going up right now and the price of oil is falling.

Wrong there since Congress and the Senate doesn't have a backbone despite the criminal activity of this administration.

The Cubs, despite making perhaps the biggest splash in free agency this year, still will not win the world series. In fact I think it will be the Florida Marlins who will win. They had a great run last year.

1/2 right. The Cubs didn't make the World Series of course but the Marlins stunk

The Detroit Red Wings will win the NHL Stanley Cup. No one will care.

The Lakers will make a run in the NBA Playoffs but will fall short to eventual winner the Denver Nuggets. No one will care.

I'll have a few predictions for next year soon. In the meantime I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and if they celebrate Kwanzaa I hope you have a happy Kwanzaa as well.

Remember do NOT drink and drive.
