    World Cup Prediction League

    World Cup is only a few days away and I, at least, am incredibly excited. Both the national teams I root for most (US and Italy) are missing out this cycle, but it's still a great event. Maybe just because there's several footy games every day, or because you get so many different styles and players from around the world. FIFA may be the biggest collection of scumbags on the planet, but they're the evil we've got to live with for this event (for now).

    Anyways, here are the rules.
    1. Each poster will prediction who they think will advance from each group.
    2. The team you list first is who you think will finish first. The team you list second is who you think will finish second.
    3. Posters are awarded 3 points for correctly predicting a team and group placement. Posters are awarded 1 point for correctly predicting the team.

    For example, if I predicted the following:
    Group A - Uruguay, Egypt

    If Uruguay wins the group and Russia finished second, I would get 3 points for my correct selection and placement of Uruguay. If Russia won the group and Uruguay finished second, I would get 1 point for correctly predicting Uruguay to advance to the knockouts.

    When we get to the knockouts, we'll go back to our traditional prediction league rules: Predict the final result and first scorer of the match.

    But here are mine:

    Group A - Uruguay, Egypt
    Group B - Spain, Portugal
    Group C - France, Denmark
    Group D - Argentina, Croatia
    Group E - Brazil, Switzerland
    Group F - Germany, Mexico
    Group G - England, Belgium
    Group H - Poland, Colombia

    Group D: Argentina, Croatia - 2 points
    Group E: Brazil, Serbia
    Group F: Germany, Sweden
    Group G: England, Belgium
    Group H: Poland, Columbia

    Everyone got maximum points from Group B. Group D seemed to trip us up as plater was the only one to get more than 2 points from the group. But nobody has whiffed on any group, everyone getting at least 1 point from each group. Though I think that may end with Group H as all of us picked Poland to go through and they have already been eliminated. All but 71 picked Colombia to go through, but they need at least a point to have a chance, a win guarantees their passage.
