John Brooks’ Dream About Scoring The Winning Goal

United States' John Brooks celebrates after scoring his side's second goal during the group G World Cup soccer match between Ghana and the United States at the Arena das Dunas in Natal, Brazil on June 16, 2014.
Here's an interesting blog post by Rich Martini, author of the thought provoking book Flipside and assistant director of the film Salt.

"US soccer player John Brooks dreamed about the game-winning he goal he made.

Last night, the soccer player scored a goal in the 86th minute, which was an unlikely turn of events because he was not a starting player—in fact, he’s a back-up defender, and defenders hardly ever get substituted. When asked about the goal, he said he dreamed it—even the part about it being after the 80-minute mark and using his head to get the ball in the goal.
Of course his dream was not literally “predictive” but it begs the question: Can dreams prime us for success in waking life? "

I personally know a lady who told me about her husband dreaming of the upcoming Saturday night winning lotto numbers, but could only remember the first three of them.
She wrote them down on a piece of paper and gave them to me, so I could watch the draw and see if any of them came up, as I had read about people winning the lotto by dreaming the numbers and was eager to put this to the test, not really believing there was going to be anything to this dream of her husband's.
Boy was I and her kicking ourselves when all three numbers were the first three numbers out of the lotto barrel in the exact right order she had written them down.
None of us even put a cent on these numbers, since we only had the first three and would have had to guess the rest ourselves...and of course, none of us really thought his dream was going to be right on the money.
As far as I know, he has never dreamed the numbers of any future draws again since.

Living the American Dream???
Mind you my own fellow countryman's goal against the Dutch is one of the best that you will ever see in the World Cup tournament.

It happens.

I wrote a couple of posts about where I dreamt the winners of horse races - even though I know nothing about horse racing. It was a long time ago, but something I've never forgotten.

As for the football at 8pm UK time I'll be glued to the TV willing England to beat Uruguay. Fingers crossed!
