Everyone’s A Genius In Hindsight – 2024

Will it be Biden vs. Trump?  YOU MIGHT HAVE THE ANSWER!  It is time for my fifth installment of my quadrennial contest – 2024 I Told You So.  This is your opportunity to have your genius fully appreciated as you predict 2024 before it occurs.  Don’t be bashful.  No one has ever gotten more than five answers correct.  This is a general knowledge guessing game.  There is a mix of politics, economics, sports, and popular culture.  There is no cost to enter and the game is open to everyone.  Feel free to share this with all of the Mavens in your life.

Though the contest is for fun, there are prizes:

1st Prize – $50 Gift Card to Shuhei or the restaurant of your choice.

2nd Prize – Lunch with me.

3rd Prize – Two lunches with me. 

The Rules:

All entries must be submitted to me by 5 PM on Friday, January 5th.  Entries may be mailed, emailed to me, or delivered in person.  The winner will be determined by the number of correct predictions.  In lieu of the exact answer, the closest to the correct answer will be given credit.  The decision of the judge (me) will be final.  The second tie breaker will be a coin toss.

Good Luck!
