Tonight we determined each family member's rooting preferences in the next round of the World Cup. I'm pulling for Germany, then the Netherlands or England. Kim favors Italy, then Ghana, then Brazil or Argentina. And Skylar wants Italy, Germany, or England to win, because the majority of her ancestors came from those three nations. I'd still bet on Brazil to win, though Argentina has looked better overall. Of the remaining European teams, Spain and Germany have looked the strongest so far. Host countries tend to do well, anyway, so I wouldn't be surprised to see Germany make the final. In the end, though, I'm still going to predict a South American champion.
