    Sorry LJB, I discovered I D-B'd so I changed the topic.

    Anyway, I think it's safe to predict that both Jason Garrett and Tony Sparano will be head coaches somewhere in the NFL next fall.

    LSU wins the BCS national championship. (To mark the event, Bill Brasky damn near drinks himself into a coma.)
    New England wins the Super Bowl.
    Bill Cowher comes out of retirement to coach the Panthers.
    Lakers trade Kobe to Chicago just before the deadline.
    Yankees have an awful season. Steinbrenner Jr. fires Joe Girardi by Labor Day.
    Lindsay Lohan poses nude for Playboy in an attempt to get her career going again. Doesn't work.
    1990s nostalgia starts in full swing in 2008, with an "X-Files" movie, more '90s themed stations and Kanye West working with a big '90s rapper/R & B singer.
    Guns N' Roses reunite.
    A truce is reached in the Blu-Ray/HD DVD format wars. Cheap combo players are introduced just in time for Christmas.
    Barack Obama is elected president of the U.S. (this is straight-up wishful thinking) He narrowly beats Mitt Romney.

    The presidential election will be wackier than 2000.
    Pakistan and India will get in a shooting war, but cooler heads will prevail before the nukes start flying.
    A nuclear weapon/weapon of mass destruction will be used in a terrorist attack.
    Cheney won't finish his term as veep.
    Rolling blackouts will hit most of the U.S. during the hottest summer on record.
    The writers strike will make a dent in TV as it drags on, but on the flipside, the movies will be better in 2008 and 2009 as a result.
    A large chunk of the country will be hit by a paralyzing, late-season ice storm.
    A terror attack will happen on American soil or it will be stopped at the last second.
    America's world-wide rep will get a boost as a result from the country's response to the terror attack and the country's presence will decrease drastically in Iraq, but that's because American forces are putting a fire out somewhere else.

    -- Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Lindsey Lohan and Nicole Ritchie will do something stupid.

    -- Lots and lots of insipid reality shows will be on TV. At some point the people will rebel, setting fire to their TVs and heading to the public library to check out copies of Brave New World, Steal This Book and What My Mother Doesn't Know.

    Or visa versa.
