Predictions For 2012 – How Did Mark Do?
As we count down to 2013 I thought I'd check back and see how I did. Let's review.
According to travelzone.com, I was right on with this one. Thousands can be counted walking the streets of Manhattan at any given 15 minute period of time. New York City is number one again.
Wrong! George was nominated but did not win, Maybe next year.
Wrong again Mark! Dr. Phil remains the top talk show, but he isn’t the only doctor with syndicated success. In fourth place among talk shows, Dr. Oz.
The McRib sandwich continues reappear on the McDonald's menu but is not permanent. It's expected to return to the menu during the second half of this month. Quite simply, slow sales has not made it a regular item and I was wrong again.
Nicki Minaj has had quite a year with excellent concert ticket sales, CD sales and her American Idol stint. She has never had much of an issue sharing the spotlight, although she could steal it all on her own. Is she more popular than Katy Perry now? Some say yes, others no. Gonna call this one a draw.
I should of just predicted that they'd go public. When Facebook went public it raised about $10 billion, bringing its valuation to around $100 billion. Yes it stock worth is down, but they are one of the world's largest IPO's.
Wrong! He's still competing, last month, Rory McIlroy edged Tiger by one stroke 67-68, in a one-day exhibition match at Jinsha Lake Golf Club in Zhengzhou, China.
Wrong! I'm getting tired of saying that. After the New York Giants barely made the play-offs, they went all the way to win the Superbowl earlier this year.
Wrong again Mark! The World Series was won by the National League champion San Francisco Giants in four games over the American League champion Detroit Tigers. It was the Giants' seventh World Series title, second in the last three years. The Sox didn't even make the play-offs.
Finally! Yes, The President did get re-elected rather soundly. I didn't think I'd get any more correct...3 out of 10 predictions correct. Nostradamus I'm not. Coming soon, my guesses for 2013.
