Oh, wow so tomorrow is the FIFA Finale and The Red Man is bummed out because his remaining favorites Brazil and The Netherlands were eliminated.  Poor old Brazil – Germany put an old-fashioned ass kicking on them and it was their party anyway and what an unhappy ending for them. Bad news all around for the Brazilians who are now between a rock and a hard place for the finale.  They hate Argentina at some deep level and how can you root for Germany after that disastrous semi-final.  Sweet Lady Gaga.  It’s a mess.

Our Dutch amigos are holding up much better than we expected.  They’ve had lots of practice at being good sports after losing.  They were Gamecock fans back in the pre-Spurrier era when our seasons in American football were less than stellar.

But the good news today is The Red Man can announce the winner in advance of the Last Game because of his connection to the New Caledonian Crows.  New Caledonia is an island somewhere in the South Pacific and it is evidently home to a large group of crows that can accurately predict the outcomes of the FIFA games.  The process is quite complicated but the results are fool-proof.  Well, really is anything totally fool-proof in this day and age, but hang on to your cell phones and put your bookies on speed dial…

Winner:  Argentina!!

Put that in your pipe and smoke it…

Get me outta here Percy…Argentina players are singing Bad Moon Rising tunes in their locker room and the moon was so full last night we heard them all the way in South Carolina…
