McDonald's adds the McRib to its permanent menu.

 
 

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.

Breakout star of 2012, Nicki Minaj, and we'll forget about Katy Perry.

 
 

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.

Facebook goes public with world's largest IPO.

 
 

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.

The Green Bay Packers win the Super Bowl for the second year in a row.

The Boston Red Sox win the World Series.

 
 

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.
