Default Re: World Cup Pick'em

I know alot of people are not soccer fans but its still something amusing to do, I for one am going to be watching as much of the World Cup as possible. Watching the MLS while its getting better as a league is no where close to watching the UEFA Cup with guys like Henry and Ronaldahino. That game was watched by almost twice as many people as the Super Bowl. The expected number for viewers of the World Cup final is over the Billion mark.

Im going to use my special inside knowledge...and come last.

Group A
1. Germany
2. Poland

Group B
1. England
2. Sweden

Group C
1. Argentina
2. Netherlands

Group D
1. Portugal
2. Angola

Group E
1. Czech Rep.
2. Italy

Group F

2. Croatia

Group G

Ok thats mine.

Official 'Group of death' has to be group E - all four teams are very talented - the USA and Ghana would have qualified out of some of the other groups.
