Shane Warne will return better than ever, Stuart MacGill will spin into retirement, and Parramatta will get to the grand final same way as the rest of us - by queuing up at Ticketek.
Meanwhile, Chad Junior will make an election eve comeback but it won't save George's sorry Texan ass and, definitely not least, Shane MacGowan will release a ripper new album. Has he ever released any other kind?
Phil Doyle - Workers Online
In the tradition of his ancestor, Padraig O'Nostradamus, Phil Doyle has donned the sorcerer's hat and gazed wistfully into the silver ball; and three sage events have emerged:
- A child shall be born who shall have the strength of ten men and be able to play off both sides of the body. Men shall look on in wonder and he shall be dubbed Son of Plugger. Truly the faithful shall flock to see him amaze and bedazzle, but the Swans will still finish outside the eight.
- The one they call The Abbott shall become even more erratic as he watches the title of supreme leader slip from his grasp and fall to...it's getting murky...Costello! But even as they wrestle for the crown the peasants shall grow restless.
- Melbourne, race 6, number 4.
Tara de Boehmler - Workers Online
2004 will see the reality TV phenomenon be used for good not evil when hit show Workers' Eye For The Corporate Guy is launched to rave reviews.

HT Lee - Travelling Mystic
By December 2004, Bush, Blair and Howard joined Sadam in the exclusive 'Ex-presidents and prime ministers--I did it my way club.'
At its inaugural meeting to elect the president a brawl almost took place. Bush said he should be the president. However, Sadam objected and said: 'Now look here, had it not been for me none of you would be in this club.'
A compromise was reached whereby the club would have rotating presidents--each member would be president for one year.
But by year's end, they still could not agree as to who should be the first rotating president.
