The Drunk’s Derby Day Winners

It's Derby Day!

It's Derby Day!

I love being right. I also love the feeling of money in my pocket and pride in my chest. Last week I gave you three picks, and they were all right. If you didn’t believe in The Drunk last week, now’s your chance to get on the bandwagon. And this is a special week, as I pick three of the largest derbies in the world. Pay attention because here come three more winners.

Let’s start off in Scotland. The land that gave us whisky and Sean Connery also gives us one of the most intense rivalries in all of sport. That’s right; we’re talking Rangers vs. Celtic. To say there is no love lost between these two would be an insult to both supporters. This is hatred and for the top of the league. Both have been inconsistent but Rangers has shown a little more form as of late.
The pick: Pickled Protestants 2 – Crocked Catholics 1

The next one is for all the tulips. Ajax host Feyenoord. This is a battle of opposites. Liberal, cultured Amsterdam battles blue-collar, conservative Rotterdam. Normally this game is for more than pride, but this season Feyenoord sits in 12th place and nineteen points behind Ajax. That should make for an extra feisty match.
The pick: The Stoners 3 – Racists from Rotterdam 1

We’ll end our derby day in Milan. They share a city, a stadium and not much else. AC Milan may be the club of superstars, but Inter has won the past three Scudettos. Milan may have Beckham, but they won’t have Kaka for this match.
The pick: Mourinho’s Maulers 1 – Beckham’s Boys 0
