Here’s to 2017!

My 2016 predictions were mostly very wrong,  but I did predict a Cubs World Series, a change of scheduling for the CFB playoffs,  and the Giants making the playoffs, so there’s that. Here’s what I see sports wise in 2017

January

A record seven players get elected to the Hall of Fame-Bagwell, Bonds, Clemens, Guerrero, Hoffman, Raines and Ivan Rodriguez.

Ohio State beats Alabama to win the CFB playoffs

The Raiders beat New England on a snowy field in the AFC Championship and advance to the Super Bowl where they meet the Cowboys.  The Giants lose their first round playoff game.

February

The Cowboys win the Super Bowl and Donald Trump takes the credit.for making the Cowboys great again

A-Rod shows up at Marlins camp in “phenomenal shape”and ready to compete for a job.

March

Duke and UNC both secure #1 seeds along with Villanova and UCLA in the tournament.

A-Rod retires again.

April

UCLA cuts down the nets after beating Kansas in the championship game

Tiger Woods actually plays in the Masters but misses the cut  Bubba Watson wins his third title

MLB sees two major stars get suspended for PEDs.

The Knicks and Rangers make the playoffs. The Knicks get eliminated in the first round

May

The Rangers lose in the conference finals to Montreal. Canada closes down for the Stanley Cup.

Cleveland and Golden State make quick work of the other NBA teams and head for their third-straight Finals matchup.

June

Durant is the difference as Golden State takes the crown.

Chicago wins another Stanley Cup over Montreal.

Jordan Speith wins the U.S. Open

July

Despite no longer “counting” MLB’s All-Star Game ratings actually improve over last year.

Phil Mickleson wins his last major at the British Open

August

Clint Frazier makes his Yankee debut while Aaron Judge gets optioned back to AAA.

September

Yankees finish the year at 83-79

October

Cubs make it two-straight with a sweep of the Astros.

November

The Knicks open the year 4-0

The 49ers are the surprise of the NFL, finishing November in first.

December

Florida State, Alabama, Michigan, and USC face off in the CFB playoffs

A blogger vows to do better in 2018 than he did with his predictions in 2017.

Happy New Year!!

    wow, how to respond …

    January -A record seven players get elected to the Hall of Fame-Bagwell, Bonds, Clemens, Guerrero, Hoffman, Raines and Ivan Rodriguez.

    I bet one or two don’t get in

    Ohio State beats Alabama to win the CFB playoffs- I will say tonight Ohio State won’t even make it to the final 🙂

    The Raiders beat New England on a snowy field in the AFC Championship and advance to the Super Bowl where they meet the Cowboys. The Giants lose their first round playoff game.

    Without their QB? Nope, NE rolls through the conference and beats rising Green Bay

    March

    Duke and UNC both secure #1 seeds along with Villanova and UCLA in the tournament.

    Duke? Just suspended their captain…

    April

    Tiger Woods actually plays in the Masters but misses the cut Bubba Watson wins his third title

    Tiger makes the cut, gets all the attention, finishes 3rd , about 5 shots back of Rory.

    Yankees finish the year at 83-79 – about right I guess. Sox win 97.
    October

    Cubs make it two-straight with a sweep of the Astros. – Sox beat Cubs!

    Happy New Year!! – same to you, best for 2017

      I picked Oklahoma to win the CFB playoffs last year, so at least I’m consistent in my terrible picks!

      Happy New Year!
