MOST COMMENTED

[WORLD CUP: Off the Post] Valencia architect and former referee Jacobo Rios-Capape won $135,000 worth of free gasoline for being the only one of some 70,000 contestants to predict the scoreline of the 5-1 Netherlands win over Spain.

Spanish fuel company Cespa organized the contest that the 56-year-old Rios-Capape entered on a whim.

“I was of course hoping Spain would win but I figured if the Dutch won it would be a big win,” he said. “So I came up with the 5-1, which I thought was ridiculous and wouldn’t happen.”
