With less than two weeks before the UEFA Champions League Final between Bayern Munich and Chelsea FC, it is time for the clichéd and overly speculative fun of making predictions. I personally am never one to really be enthused by them, and I think they are nothing more than mindless banter meant to artificially raise intrigue. But I have found that I am a part of a very small minority in this regard.
For some reason unbeknownst to me, we love to attempt to have a foresight knowledge of an inherently unpredictable practice such as sports for no other reason than to self indulge in one’s own glory when they coincidentally happen to be right. But hey, we are selfish creatures by nature.
But instead of trying to be wholly accurate in my approach to an event that is more than 10 days away from occurring, I instead prefer to be “bold,” aka utterly outrageous and inconceivable in my predictions. This does not mean there is zero chance of any of these instances occurring, but simply that the likelihood would not follow the mass opinions of prognosticators.
But then again, how much more bold is it to make outrageous claims for the future than someone who makes even probably claims as if they are certain?
Here are 10 BOLD predictions for the Champions League Final.
