On December 27th, 2019 at 11:00 PM Eastern Time, The 9th Annual Freeker’s Ball Prediction Show was aired Live, Hosted by Moosegurl and Myself (Grimnir).
We went through all of the predictions made last year for 2019, reviewed the new predictions for 202, and had a couple of new features: 1) Resolutions and the the 12 Top Stories covered on the show during the year.
The show was a lot of fun with plenty of audience participation from the folks in the chat room.
We will, of course, do this all again at the end of 2020, assuming there is no cataclysmic event that prevents us from doing so 😉
OK, On to the Predictions!
