2021: The Year In Review

In the opening post of this year, I published my annual list of predictions for 2021. Now that this is the final post for 2021, I'll take a look back at what I wrote to see what came right...

Andrew Luck will come out of retirement, but it will not be as a member of the Indianapolis Colts
Didn't happen.

Luck will be a New England Patriot
See above.

The Green Bay Packers will be the Super Bowl winners and Aaron Rodgers will be the Super Bowl MVP
Nah, the Super Bowl winners were the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Alex Smith, from the Washington Redskins, will be the Comeback Player of the Year
He was!

Soul will win the Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film
I had this one right.

The Queen's Gambit will win an Emmy Award for Outstanding Limited Series
Looks like this was a winner as well.

Belgium will win the Euros (I carried this one over from 2020 due to the tournament being postponed due to the pandemic)
No, it was Italy.

I will do a Codewords puzzle that will take me less than twenty minutes to complete (current best is mid-20s)
I reached this goal early in 2021. 

Bianca Belair will win the women's Royal Rumble match

Daniel Bryan will win the men's Royal Rumble match
No! It was Edge.

Roman Reigns .vs. Daniel Bryan will be the WrestleMania main event (I said this last year, but was wrong. I think it has a much better chance this time)
Well, I'm going to take a W on this one. The main event was a triple threat match with Reigns, Bryan and Edge.

Kota Ibushi will leave WrestleKingdom on January 4/5 as the IWGP Heavyweight and Intercontinental Champion
Yes, he did.

John Harbaugh will no longer be the head coach of the Baltimore Ravens by December 31st 2021
Nah, he's still in charge.

Bill Goldberg will wrestle Roman Reigns at SummerSlam 2021
Nope. Goldberg wrestled Bobby Lashley while Roman Reigns defended the Universal Championship against John Cena

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer will lose his job as Manchester United boss
He did.

Adam Gase will no longer be the head coach of the New York Jets
That was an easy prediction

That was a mixed bag of right and wrong predictions. Check back tomorrow for 2022 spoilers.
