    Default Mack North (The Drunk Irish) Wins the RR 2010 World Cup Pool!

    ----
    The World Cup begins on Friday, June 11, 2010, and if you're not a full-blooded Canadian, than you're excited as fuck to get it started!

    The defending champions are the ITALIANS (lest they let anyone forget). But the truth is that because we're still indebted to them for sharing so much of their culture with us, the world has long agreed to let Italy win the cup once every couple of decades, and that's why we let them win in 2006. (Zidane's head-butt ensured the fix). All this means is that the 2010 World Cup is fully up for grabs!

    We hope your country or country of choice wins the Cup. (But we know some of your countries will be lucky just to score a goal during Interval 1).

    Good luck to all!

    It's a Yahoo! fantasy points pool for picking winners and guessing final scores.

    Points will be awarded for picking winners and bonus poins will be awarded for correctly guessing final scores.

    My picks are in although I would not be surprised if I finish last in this thing. Football isn't my strong point.

    Hey, Australia gets a weak ass draw to get to the world cup now, we'll be here for ages, and we would have done better last time if not for that diving douchebag grosso (yes I am still bitter).

    I've got Irish, Scottish, and French Canadian blood (Not cheering for the French). I used my RR name is it possible to change it?

    If you leave the pool, I think you can re-enter with a new name.

    Hey do we have to pick all the games before it begins, or can we pick them the day of the game or what??? It says the deadline in 5 mins before each game...
