HEY – my theory just picked 3 out of the first 4 group winners. You thought that picking your World Cup winners based on each countries wine production was silly? Consider the following …
Pool A France – OOPS didn’t win a game – maybe 2010 was a disfunctional vintage
Pool B winner Argentina – CORRECT go ahead and buy some Fuzion, see if I care
Pool C winner USA – CORRECT American wine is more than Ernest & Gallo white zinfandel
Pool D winner Germany – CORRECT and I have one word for you – Gewürztraminer [ɡəˈvʏɐtstʁaˈmiːnɐ] (please say that in your best Arnold Schwarzenegger voice – or just say Bastian Schweinsteiger if you like)
FINAL UPDATE …
My theory did pick 5 of 8 pool winners in the end. It was always a long shot for Portugal to beat Brazil’s soccer genius – the Dutch are the best drinkers in their pool – Spanish wine is my favorite, thankyou for winning your pool – and Italy?… I don’t even know where to begin. Let’s just hope that your wines age better than your aging national team.
