Chuck Helm: Full-time Performing Arts Director, Part-time Soccer Prognosticator

Wed, Jun 25, 2008

Most people know Chuck Helm as the Wexner Center's Director of Performing Arts, but he's also a soccer fanatic. With that in mind, we asked him to send us a few of his UEFA 08 picks for the finals and semi-finals. His answers are below (we also take no responsibility if you bet the family vacation fund on any of these).

Germany vs. Turkey:
Germany....they're a powerhouse team and Turkey's injury and foul problems are too much of a issue to overcome.

Russia vs. Spain:
This is tougher call...but I think Spain will prevail. Striker combo of David Villa and Fernando Torres is very impressive.

Final:
Germany...overall better team defensively and their level of experience will be the difference.

So what say you, blog-reader? Agree with Chuck? Disagree? Post your soccer picks below.
