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.
