2021 is coming to a close and it has been a crazy year! From GameStop stock skyrocketing to a massive cargo ship getting stuck in the Suez Canal to #FreeBrittney… a lot has happened. It got us thinking, what will happen in 2022? We asked our staff what their crazy 2022 predictions were, and they did not disappoint.
Superbowl Winner? We had a little competition when it came to predicting the Super Bowl winner for 2022. Predictions included the Eagles, Packers, and that a team who has never won before will take the NFL Championship title.
World Series Winner? Similarly, our staff seemed divided on the World Series. It got a little heated when it came down between the Boston Red Sox and the Yankees. Don’t worry there were no casualties in our office over this one.
Stanley Cup Winner? Our resident Canadian was very proud to predict that the Toronto Maple Leafs will finally win the Stanley Cup for the first time in over 50 years!
Future Fashion? We had some fashion predictions come up including that bell-bottoms and Go-Go boots will make a return and that clogs will become more popular than Crocs.
Unrelated to fashion, someone predicted that our very own Sean Beirne will shave his mustache!
Are we shore? When it comes to the entertainment industry, the prediction that topped our inbox was that Pauly Shore will make a comeback and get actor of the year.
Changes coming? Other predictions included that gasoline would reach $6 a gallon, bitcoin will exceed $100K/share, and that the world will be looking for a space dump to dispose of old car batteries.
Shadow or No Shadow? Our staff is predicting that Punxsutawney Phil will NOT see his shadow in 2022.
However, Phil may want to warn his hamster cousins as another prediction was that cars powered by genetically enhanced hamsters running on hamster wheels are brought out to the market and begin selling like gangbusters. The resulting spike in hamster supply sales necessary for automobiles results in Auto-Zone and Petco merging forces to become Auto-Pet.
That seems unlikely but we are hopeful with our last prediction for 2022 being that we will never say the word pandemic again!
These predictions sure are crazy! We will revisit these at the end of 2022 to see just how right (or wrong) we were. No matter what 2022 brings, we will be here to help you navigate it and find the right protection for your needs. Happy New Year!
