EDITORS NOTE: These predictions were made in March 2011 and reflect what my thinking was at that time. I have updated my predictions since then, but leave these on the blog for a historical record. For the most updated list of predictions, go to the Tracker Pages in the upper right hand corner of this blog.
I’ve been doing some research and have added several additional entries to the predictions pages. Lots of long shots, but possibly a few real contenders along the way.
As always, check the tracker pages in the upper right column of this blog for the most up to date predictions.
