2009 Predictions

DISCLAIMER: As i type this I am battling the flu, not very clear thinking.

Looking back over last years 1/1 post I find that only 1 of my predictions came to be . . . the Boston Celtics won the NBA championship. Another prediction, the Florida would win the national championship in football remains to be seen . . . they are playing in the game in a few days . . . but hey, at least they got there.

Here goes . . .

1. Though we may never hear it, Obama will say quietly to himself "Why did I ever want this job?" What, with the problems that confront us and the big-time egos in his cabinet. He's in for it (and I'm afraid we are too). Earnestly, may we pray for the president and for our nation.

2. At the 2009 Oscars, Heath Ledger will win an award. (I know, that's really stepping out on a limb.)

3. The financial turmoil will continue throughout the year. Businesses will fail. But I also predict that this downturn will make us a stronger nation, and we will rise stronger. I don't just mean financially stronger, but I think we will be really ripe for a great spiritual awakening.

4. UNC will win the national championship in men's basketball.

5. To be crowned in 2010, Texas will win the national championship in football.

6. The Indianapolis Colts will win the Super Bowl.

7. The New York Yankees will win the World Series.

8. Carl Edwards will win the NASCAR championship.

9. The Boston Celtics will repeat as NBA Champions.

10. Hollywood will turn "The Last Lecture" into a movie.
