It is no secret that I really don't like soccer. I know several readers around here vehemently disagree with me, so after much thought I have made a personal decision to watch the World Cup.
I know Lounge regular Erik will be excited, and Nagler of course, but the decision to watch is certainly not a sign of my future undying love for the sport. There are other sports I am not as fond of such as baseball, but fantasy teams at least have kept me interested enough. There is absolutely no way in hell I was going to join a soccer fantasy league, so I had to do the unthinkable. Place a wager.
We all know I am not a gambling man, but I was talking to my buddies over at Doc's Sports (one of our fine Wisconsin based sponsors) and they were telling me how they made soccer bettors over 1000 percent or something last time around. Now I don't know what 1000 percent of five bucks is, but I gave in and pulled the trigger.
Honestly, I have never even seen a set of World Cup brackets much less the World Cup betting odds, but I now officially have a vested interest in the outcome. I can't guarantee I will make it through the entire thing, but it stands to reason that when money is on the line I'll pay much closer attention.
I can live for like a week on five bucks.
Wish me and my five bucks luck with my first ever World Cup Soccer picks. Thanks again to Doc's for giving me another thing to do when I should be doing something else.
Oh yeah, I took the United States, didn't even look.
