Six-finger family hopes for Brazil's trophy No. 6
[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] Fourteen out of the 24 members of the Silva family in Brazil were born with six fingers on each hand. The Silvas are
considered to be a good luck omen for Brazil, hoping to win its sixth World Cup title.
The extra digit comes from a genetic condition called polydactyly.
With a Brazil title
win this summer, the Silva family will be able to express how many times Brazil has won the World Cup with just one hand.
