The World Cup is coming to a close. I have followed the tournament like this:

  • In the first round, the USA was my team. Unfortunately, they didn’t make it out of the first round.
  • In the second round, I started off wanting Mexico to win, but they lost to Argentina.
  • With Mexico gone, I was going with Argentina to win, but they lost to Germany.
  • In the semifinals, I wanted Germany and Portugal to win, but they both lost.
  • Now, in the final, I am cheering for Italy (since the USA tied against them), which is probably good news for France.

It’s a good thing I am not a betting man. I would be out a lot of money by now.
