World Cup Predictions

Manatees, monkeys, and an octopus are all used as predictor of winners of major sporting events. Groundhogs too if you count Spring as a sporting event.

So this year I decided to open a Rioja and if it sees its shadow then Spain is going to win FIFA’s World Cup again. The proof is right before you.  Start singing “Campeones, campeones, ole, ole, ole!

Better than a groundhog’s shadow

I really think Spring is upon us.  I put a perfectly good Côtes du Rhône outside on Sunday and it saw it’s shadow. So I drank it.

For those of you looking for a good red wine under $12 [unfortunately $12 is the new $10] look no more.


Better than a Groundhog

For Groundhog Day I put a bottle of champagne outside my front porch and I saw its shadow so we drank it.

 Also, technically the champagne was a Crémant de Bourgogne and it was delicious.
