The winners, who predicted the most at-the-time unlikely event that nevertheless turned true: A tie between FW, who said that “the mortgage meltdown is going to be on a massive scale that will dwarf the savings and loan scandal that that other republican administration had the taxpayers pay for”; and Larry, who said that Barack Obama would win both the Democratic nomination and the presidential election.
The losers, also a tie: also Larry, who predicted that Rudy Guiliani would be the Republican nominee; also FW, who said that Christ would return in glory; and Cindy for predicting that “the Packers will defeat the Patriots in the Super Bowl, and Brett Favre will retire as the reigning Super Bowl MVP.”
(Tomorrow we’ll take predictions for 2009.)
