The ball is going to drop soon, so I do not have much time to complete this post before 2006 is upon us.

Without further ado, here are my Top 15 sports predictions for 2006:

– An AFC team wins Super Bowl XL

– Terrell Owens does quite well in 2006, playing for an AFC team

– The Detroit Tigers have their first winning season since 1993, but miss the playoffs anyway

– Matt Millen is fired as President and CEO of the Detroit Lions

– The Detroit Pistons again face the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals, and this time they win handily

– The Detroit Red Wings make it to the Stanley Cup Finals, but lose to Ottawa

– NCAA Basketball Final Four: Washington, Florida, Duke, and Michigan State

– USC wins the National Championship by beating Texas in the Rose Bowl (in a surprisingly close game)

– Reggie Bush goes #1 in the NFL Draft

– The White Sox don’t win their division

– The Miami Heat do not make it to the Eastern Conference Finals

– Lebron James is NBA MVP

– Steve Yzerman retires

– The Dallas Mavericks make it to the Western Conference Finals (and lose)

– The US makes it all the way to the World Cup semifinals before losing, but then loses in the match for third place
