Not that it will be of much interest to many of our ‘Yankee’ readership, but I’m picking Spain for the World Cup. (Yes… ‘soccer’… you know that thing that the rest of the world call ‘football’? Where the 22 men chase the little bag of wind around a patch of grass and wear short shorts? The sport only women seem to play over here? I’m forgetting myself anyway – Heat vs Mavs is on tomorrow night anyway, so the watercooler talk will be all about that with most of you
dicks guys, and not how Wayne Rooney’s busted foot is healing up.)
Many who know me will already know that for every World Cup since 1982 (yes, I’m THAT old), I’ve picked Spain to win the whole thing. And every World Cup, like the perennial underachievers they are, they fall to bits. (Shit, in ’82 they even crashed to my peoples… don’t fuck with the drunkards.) Every tournament, myself and a gang of others talk them up because of the strength of Barcelona, Real Madrid etc etc, and every tournament they end up turning to dung.
Not this time though. I have every confidence that Spain will win the World Cup. Remember where you read it folks.
(Oh and if you like a bet at all, get the house on South Korea to beat Togo on June 13th. Togo are a complete bag of wank, and a South Korea win sits at 2.26 on Betfair. Other decent match bets are USA at 3-1 to beat the Czech Republic on June 12th, and Poland to beat Germany on June 14th – definitely worth a go at 5-1 (both those prices on Skybet.)
