The beautiful thing about sports is that “there’s always next year.” And for some, 2019 will be that year.
A fresh calendar means fresh opportunities, a clean slate and history that has yet to be made. Thankfully, fans won’t have to wait long – 2019 in sports starts almost immediately with the College Football Championship Game between Alabama and Clemson on January 7. (We’ll spoil that one for you right off the bat: Alabama is favored to win.)
It’s not an exact science, of course, and some of these predictions will surely be wrong, but it’s still fun to think about.
