Unlikely bucket list for unlikely doom

The Mayan myth is almost as silly as an episode of Jersey Shore. The Mayans probably ran out of room on their stone tablets and said “screw it.”

But if the world were to end, I’m hoping for a few events before the Dec. 21 doomsday.

First off, the Chicago Cubs must win the World Series this year. It’s been 103 years since the Cubs won anything. Alcohol was still outlawed in the U.S. when the Cubs last won the Series. It took the Red Sox 86 years to win it all in 2004. I’m not a fan, but wouldn’t it be nice for the Cubs to go out as winners?

I don’t have a lot of concern for the entertainment industry but I, like many Dr. Dre fans, would like to listen to his final album Detox before we all supposedly perish.

His last album came out 11 years ago, and all he’s done since is sell expensive headphones with his logo attached.

Hopefully, Hollywood does away with 3-D movies. Avatar was enough. I’m anticipating the day producers decide to release Scarface in 3-D.

While not likely, police should solve the murders of rap artists Tupac Shakur and Christopher Wallace. It would bring closure to their mothers and their fans.

Fans don’t need another postmortem album from either artist. A solved case makes up for the last 15 years of waiting.

Gas prices won’t ever be under $2 a gallon, but can gas at least be affordable again?

College is expensive enough with books, tuition and other expenses. There’s no FAFSA for oil prices.

It’s unlikely any of these things will happen, much like the 2012 doomsday itself.

Nobody should wait to see if Nostradamus’ predictions are right. Dec. 21, 2012, is a date that people will joke about during New Year’s parties.

Remember Y2K? How did that go again?
