Davian’s World Cup Picks: June 24, 2014

Here are my main character Davian’s World Cup Picks for today:

  • Italy vs Uruguay: Since England is out of it, cuisine rules this pick. In honor of Fettuccine Alfredo, bolognese sauce, wine, and olive oil, Davian picks Italy, although he wishes he wasn’t cheering for a team that is often on the butt end of military jokes.
  • Costa Rica vs England: England is out of it, but Davian’s still cheering for the country that brought us Cheddar Cheese, Hobgoblin, Bass, Boddingtons, fish & chips, the Magna Carta, Harry Potter, Dr. Who, James Bond, and Sherlock Holmes. And Harriers.
  • Japan vs. Columbia: Davian chooses Japan. He despises the drug trade and the corruption that comes along with it.
  • Greece vs Ivory Coast: Davian is going to watch Japan vs Columbia and ignore this one. The Greece team disappointed him with their over-dramatic falls, and Ivory Coast has far too many problems with conflict diamonds.

We’ll be discussing the games, and of course what beverage of choice you might be drinking during the games, at my new Facebook group: M. B. Weston’s Treetop Inn. Please come join us!

About M. B. Weston

Award-winning author M. B. Weston is one of the fantasy genre’s new, emerging voices. The Elysian Chronicles, her flagship fantasy series about guardian angel warfare and treason, has been referred to as, “…filling a big part of the void that will be left by the final Harry Potter,” by award-winning author, Vincent O’Neil. Weston’s writing attracts both fantasy and non-fantasy readers, and her audience ranges from upper-elementary students to adults. The Elysian Chronicles is being adapted into a graphic novel, and her newest book, The Sword of the Vanir (working title), is due out in Spring 2013. A gifted orator, Weston has been invited as a guest speaker to numerous writing and science fiction/fantasy panels at conventions across the US, including DragonCon, BabelCon, NecronomiCon, and ImagiCon. She has served on panels with such authors as Sherrilyn Kenyon, J. F. Lewis, Todd McCaffrey, and Jonathan Maberry. Weston has spoken to thousands of students and adults about the craft of writing and has been invited as the keynote speaker at youth camps and at several schools throughout the US.
