Predictions for 2008

2007 is almost over, only a few more hours left. 2008 is almost here. Tom Walsh from the Detroit Free Press already gave us his predictions and the predictions of various other people around town.

Not to be outdone, I give you my predictions for the coming year.

I predict that 2008 will be the year that the Detroit Tigers get to play in the World Series again.

I predict that 2008 will also be the year that a plan to expand Cobo Hall finally get approved.

I'm also going to go out on a limb and say that this year's presidential race will be an interesting one (and I almost mean that in the sense of the Chinese curse). I predict that there will be a serious third party candidate, with Ralph Nader and the Libertarian candidate (possibly Ron Paul) nibbling at the edges. When we go to bed on November 4th, I doubt we will know who our new president is.

The Book-Cadillac Hotel will finally re-open to the public in October, 2008 after being dormant for more than 20 years. (I hear tell, the place even inspired a really cool documentary.)
