5 bold predictions for 2012:

5. Tim Tebow throws out the first pitch at the Red Sox - Yankees play-in game, and is announced as the NY Jets starting QB.

4. The Los Angeles Angels finish with 99 wins. Across town the Dodgers finish with 99 losses.

3. A Florida Marlins game is delayed by 45 minutes, after fish have to be evacuated from one of the aquariums behind the plate when a foul ball cracks the bottom of the glass.

2. President Obama throws out the first pitch of the World Series, while wearing a White Sox hat and Nationals Jacket.

1. Ryan Braun is suspended 50 games after a positive test for PEDs.


  1. Love the 5 Bold Predictions, especially #1.
    It will be classic when that comes to pass, the liar!

  2. I like #3. Aren't there enough fish in the sea that you don't have to put them in a baseball stadium?

    1. If you were a fish, would you rather live in the sea and get eaten by a shark or live in a noisy tank and get to watch 81 baseball games every year?

      I still think Mountain Lions are a good idea for the Rox.
