recycled from last year, but still leaves me tickled with myself.....
Anyone can predict winners, top four, team scores, etc. I, however choose to predict happenings to look for at each of the 14 weight classes...
103 -- A youngster will get called for not having his shoelaces secured. They will be tied, but not taped, thus leading to controversy and outrage.
112 -- This will be the weight class were a mom confronts a coach following a tight semi-finals match. The mom will be upset that the coach didn't complain more about what she saw as poor officiating.
119 -- All will wrestle to seed in this weight class
125 -- A name will be misspelled or mistyped on the bracket sheet. Sadly, no one notices in time, and no correction will be made.
130 -- A wrestler will miss weight at this weight class
135 -- During the first round, someone will vomit during the match
140 -- A match will be lost in this class because someone won't realize it's his turn to wrestle until moments before the match. He will blame his team mates for not pulling him away from his open-faced roast beef sandwich he brought from home.
145 -- Finals headgear malfunction. New headgear is brought in to save the day
152 -- Everyone will be confused why the first round of this weight is delayed. It will be because of the overtime thriller in the pigtail round
160 -- Action here is widely ignored in the first round due to the confusion about the 152 class
171 -- Someone forgets his singlet at home and is forced to wear one a size too big. Although humiliated, the offending wrestler puts forth a great effort.
189 -- An easy name will be inadvertently mispronounced during the finals. Everyone in the crowd will be uncomfortable for a moment.
215 -- There will be some confusion about bout cards during the day. It will end up that the cards were right all along, and no one should have questioned them to begin with.
285 -- Regardless of outcome, all wrestlers in this class become great friends over the course of the meet.
