Yesterday, I let my head do all the work in attempting to predict the various outcomes of the 2014 World Cup. Today, it’s my heart’s turn. Today’s predictions will be swayed by things like Luka Modric’s new haircut, my enjoyment of dolmades, my dislike of Luis Suarez, and the country of origin of my best friend in 5th grade. There will likely be little sense behind these picks, but there would be few happier people on the planet if everything worked out like the following.
So, without further ado, here are my Heart predictions for the World Cup.
Group A: Brazil, Cameroon, Mexico, Croatia
Group B: Netherlands, Spain, Australia, Chile
Group C: Japan, Greece, Colombia, Ivory Coast
Group D: Costa Rica, England, Italy, Uruguay
Group E: Honduras, Ecuador, Switzerland, France
Group F: Bosnia & Herzegovina, Argentina, Nigeria, Iran
Group G: USA, Germany, Portugal, Ghana
Group H: South Korea, Belgium, Algeria, Russia
Semi-Finals: Japan, Netherlands, South Korea, United States
Finals: South Korea, United States
Champion: South Korea
Golden Ball Winner: Keisuke Honda (Japan)
Top Goal Scorer: Jozy Altidore (USA)
Golden Gloves: Thibaut Courtois (Belgium)
Bonus Ball: By the end of the World Cup Mix Diskerud’s Hair (@diskerudshair) following will be up ten-fold and be pushing 5000 followers. The world will be 100 times better because Mix’s flowing locks will help us forget about the hatchet job that recently happened to Luka Modric’s hair.
So, how many crushed dreams are in my future? If you have an idea, just let me know in the comments section below.
