Barack Obama is going to announce his running mate.
Manny Ramirez will be traded.
It will be discovered that the frozen dessert, Mars, not only had water but that you can get satellite radio up there to listen to the Brian Lehrer Show!

The stand in will read one of my posts on air.
Also check out the Hall of Springs in Saratoga! Really nice!!
Cheney will go quail hunting with Bush.
In Lake Placid, check out Lisa G.'s. Have a great vacation, Brian!
Atheletes will have to drop out of events on a wholesale basis because of the untenable pollution situation in Beijing.
If you go to Saratoga, don't forget the Old Bryan Inn and SPAC to see the Philadelphia Orchestra
Brian,Don't you hate when cars honk at you when you are on your bike? Even when it is intended as a friendly honk?
There will be a Dark Knight Joker imitator inciting some kind of anarchy.
Also Gov. Paterson will have another affair after witnessing his wife talking to another man.
While in the Adirondacks, Brian is going to take a day trip to Saratoga, avoid the racetrack and eat some crepes at the restaurant, Ravenous! One of my favs. Have a great vacation!
Global warming will come to critical mass. Oceans rise enough to submerge Manhattan. You will be safe at high altitude.
Fidel Castro will reappear wearing his olive-green uniform; healthier than ever!
First, I think WNYC should forbid you to go on vacation. I can't stand it when you're not there.
Second, the headline will be, "Bush Invades Iran." See, you really don't want to be away when that happens.
Gushing crude oil will be discovered in Adrondack State Park and Brian, you will be the on-the-scene reporter to cover it; to the great dismay of Brian's family.
In order to insure Obama's election, Hillary will be named his V.P.
Nancy Pelosi will call for impeachment of both Buch and Cheney.
Rove will be arrested for contempt.
I was going to say Barack Obama announces that his VP choice is Hillary Clinton. But Suzanne 's is even better!
One of our presidential candidates will probably drop because of some unforseen embarassing issue, that will ruin their chances anyway.
George Bush will announce his plan for a WWII-style national mobilization for a greener America.
John McCain will choose Hillary Clinton as his running mate.
Hillary will file for divorce, removing the biggest impediment to being chosen as Obama's VP
McCain will announce that he has chosen Mitt Romney as his vice-presidential nominee.
(Obama won't announce his choice until just before the convention, but I'm betting that the choice will be Evan Bayh.)
All of the optimists will be shocked and surprised when the Chinese govt. suddenly announces that it won't allow uncensored internet access to visiting journalists during the Olympics.

Nooooo! Don't leave us Brian!!
(Have a great vacation.)
I predict ... Nothing!
riots in china or i find happiness with all the extra time on my hands since BL is gone...
al gore will be obama's vp..
Bush can't invade Iran without Congress approval.
All humor aside, I am completely concerned we will invade Iran while you are away! Sometimes small things happen but sometimes they are big. There's no shortage of people guessing this will happen before the elections.
I'm guessing some sort of terrorist attempt to damage/destroy an Olympic venue. Also, watch for those poor athletes to keel over from the pollution in great numbers.
Barach Obama will win the 200 meters in Beijing
The MTA decides that the debit/credit is just too expensive and announces a return to tokens. It's partly underwritten by Madonna, who will have exclusive rights to half the ad space and the recorded announcements. She hails the move as a return to an "edgier" NYC.
My greatest fear is that there will be a massive terrorist attack on the scale of 9/11.

A heatwave will increase the terrible conditions on subway platforms and a snafu on the 4 line. A riot breaks out at Union Square, and the MTA shuts down debit/credit to restore order.
The war in Iraq... won't end.
Dick Cheney will resign the Vice-Presidency, saying that he wanted to “spend more time with my family.” Less that 12 hours later, Geo. W Bush will nominate John McCain to the office. Vowing to block McCain from attaining the office, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will....
