Mick Jagger: A World Cup Jinx?

ABU DHABI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES - FEBRUARY 21: Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones performs at du Arena, Yas Island on February 21, 2014 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
Some Brazilian World Cup fans are asking for Mick Jagger’s support…in NOT cheering for the host team!

It has caught the attention of fans and media alike that whomever Jagger has offered he support toward in the 2014 World Cup has usually resulted in bad things for the team.  And while it might be all be coincidence, fans of Brazil’s team don’t want to take any chances and have even started making signs asking Jagger to support other teams!

Jagger tweeted out a message to England’s team during their match against Uruguay.   England would go on to lose.  And at a recent show in Rome, Jagger told fans in attendance that Italy would overcome Uruguay only to be knocked out of the World Cup tournament.

A jinx or simply a coincidence, people should be on the lookout for Jagger’s next World Cup match statement…and then see what Vegas odds are reporting thereafter!
