Parrot On A Winning Streak Picks Japan To Win Women's World Cup

LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Linda Wertheimer. The U.S. and Japan face-off, Sunday, in the Women's World Cup Final, but the match might already be decided. Olivia, a gray parrot at a Japanese zoo, has correctly predicted the past six games for Japan. Today she walked up to two flags - the stars and stripes and the rising sun. Olivia picked Japan. Now the U.S. team can demonstrate that sports analysts are purely bird-brained. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
