I'm in...I have a RIDICULOUS bracket.
Fuck it. This will be fun!!

The movie projector is down, but anyone is welcome to come over for any game. I'm watching them all.

In it to win it, boys.

im in
Posted: Jun 3, 2010 6:11 am
I'm in. My final: England - Germany. Classic!
Posted: Jun 3, 2010 9:34 am
I got Netherlands and Spain in the finals. I had to, my gf's Spanish.
Posted: Jun 3, 2010 9:48 am
I'm in. Just like my terrible March Madness bracket, I picked Georgetown to win it.
Posted: Jun 3, 2010 9:50 am
If there's an 'England lose on penalties' option, put all your money on it.
Posted: Jun 3, 2010 11:57 am
I'm in . Picked Spain over Brazil. Since I'll be in Spain for the final, could be a real party.

Cannot believe Holland plays Brazil. I think Algeria will force out the USA. Not sure about England however. at the last minute I picked Nigeria over So. Korea for the continental advantage.
Posted: Jun 3, 2010 2:48 pm
If Cameroon gets to the final, I'm headed to Cameroon.
Posted: Jun 3, 2010 3:07 pm
Indomitable Lions!

but if they beat the Danes, they play the champs. uh-oh.
Posted: Jun 3, 2010 5:28 pm
If Cameroon gets to the final, I'm headed to Cameroon.
If North Korea scores a goal, I'm heading to Pyongyang.
Posted: Jun 3, 2010 5:56 pm
I'm in. I'm really new to this, so my bracket will suck. Still, if I can help feed people and buy some douchebag records, that's cool. There's always beginners luck!

yes, bruce is a douche.

honduras in the 7th round by t.k.o, bitches!

18 folks so far... still time to sign up!

If anyone's thinking of last minute changes, this World Cup spreadsheet may help.

Kevin and Andrew...care to make this more interesting?

Hi Miles

Posted: Jun 10, 2010 8:33 pm
I assume it will result in beer and food, so absolutely. Is it too late to put Ghana through to the finals?
Posted: Jun 10, 2010 8:56 pm
Not too late! Spread the word... the more the merrier! Or... enter again... a whole Honduras bracket! A Ghana bracket... A bracket for every team... you can't lose!
Posted: Jun 10, 2010 10:11 pm
10 hours and counting...
Posted: Jun 11, 2010 11:12 am
Kevin and Lisa, if y'all are willing, I'll offer up an evening of beer and ice cream in our backyard. We've abandoned the bullshit KitchenAid mixer ice cream attachment and have gone back to the standalone maker, so we're back in prime form.
Posted: Jun 11, 2010 11:16 am
I'll offer beer and my award winning Carne Asada Pizza! So biggest loser cooks/buys beer for the other two??? Looks like Kevin didn't even enter...he said he was going to the other night. Maybe its just us!
Posted: Jun 11, 2010 11:44 am | Edited by: No Big Thing
Sounds like a plan. I was counting on Kevin to at least even out the odds you wouldn't win; something tells me your picks are significantly more well-informed than mine.

Lisa = awarded multiple distinctions for fb prowess
me = once broke hip playing fb in the back yard

Posted: Jun 11, 2010 12:07 pm
tommy's bracket just made me laugh
Posted: Jun 11, 2010 2:28 pm
It's like the NCAA tourney. I always go with who I WANT to win.
Just remember how close the game was against Germany in 2002.
Posted: Jun 11, 2010 6:17 pm
for some reason I didn't think half of the brackets would be picking Spain to win. guess I'm not so original.
Posted: Jun 13, 2010 11:07 am
Bruce- J9 has the socceroos advancing... we'll see!
Posted: Jun 13, 2010 1:28 pm
U Bracket U Buy it

picked Serbia to be the upsetters, but Go Black Stars !
Posted: Jun 13, 2010 2:56 pm
Bruce- J9 has the socceroos advancing... we'll see!

Posted: Jun 13, 2010 4:15 pm
yup, but that was germany, they still played better then usa, germany was the best i've seen so far
Posted: Jun 13, 2010 4:43 pm
I was feeling pretty smug about picking Ghana to win Group D. Until the Germany game. Good god. They were amazing.
Posted: Jun 13, 2010 4:51 pm
I know. Damn, they just rolled. I had Germany to win the whole thing, but changed it to Spain the day before the Cup began.
Posted: Jun 14, 2010 12:53 pm
Damn. Desert Foxes let me down. but that was one cheap goal for us Yanks, so holding out bracket hope.

Germans will choke. They did in WWII.
Posted: Jun 15, 2010 12:40 pm
Late goal for the All Whites! I (maybe stupidly) picked New Zealand to finish second in the group. They looked dead for most of the second half until the goal.
Posted: Jun 16, 2010 4:19 pm
OMG!!!! I'm fucked! cannot believe SA is out.

Posted: Jun 16, 2010 4:41 pm
cannot believe SA is out.
They're technically not out yet. A draw between France and Mexico tomorrow keeps them in it.
Posted: Jun 16, 2010 4:52 pm
If North Korea scores a goal, I'm heading to Pyongyang.
FYI. I'm only able to post here, because the goner board is the only international website that can be viewed from North Korean internet cafes.
Posted: Jun 17, 2010 1:09 pm
Picking the 1st and 2nd out thing is the catch on these... argh.
Posted: Jun 17, 2010 3:18 pm
damn, that's it.
fuckin' lazy Frenchmen.
Posted: Jun 22, 2010 12:39 pm
First wave of results are in.
Posted: Jun 22, 2010 12:43 pm
are you gloating?
Posted: Jun 22, 2010 1:02 pm
No, but Tommy Trouble might be if he looks on here today.
Posted: Jun 22, 2010 3:34 pm
Posted: Jun 22, 2010 3:40 pm
Damn. Anything could have happened in that final 15 minutes.
Posted: Jun 22, 2010 5:30 pm
I was believing in South Africa for the 1st half, wish they beat France 7-0.
Posted: Jun 23, 2010 3:56 pm
argh. I suck. 3%.

Is it too late to put Ghana through to the finals?

Not too late!

I've got a problem with follow-through.
Posted: Jun 28, 2010 11:13 am
ahhhhh ... that's better.
but the French and Italian failures have definitely doomed me...
Posted: Jun 28, 2010 5:57 pm
beginning my long ascent back to the top, really, no one else took argentina?
Posted: Jun 28, 2010 10:26 pm
They were outsiders coming into the tournament. Lots of incredible talent, but somehow almost didn't qualify. Lots of craziness on and off the pitch. The Germans will provide a real test. Should be a fantastic match.
Posted: Jun 29, 2010 12:12 pm
Freebasers unite and get behind Maradona!
Posted: Jul 2, 2010 12:00 pm
beginning my long ascent back to the top
You're almost there. Kandicook has the same remaining outcome as me and 2 extra points, so I'm out of the running now. I'm cheering for Bruce. Or maybe blowing.

Posted: Jul 2, 2010 12:04 pm
OMG! Who has Holland????
Posted: Jul 2, 2010 12:58 pm
OMG! Who has Holland????

I do! I think I was the only one with the Oranje. I've got them playing Argentina in the final. I think I'm too far behind at this point, but I may have an outside shot.
Posted: Jul 2, 2010 5:11 pm
Spain in the finals, against the Dutch, my gf is Spanish!!!
Went from #23 to #12 today.
Posted: Jul 2, 2010 6:54 pm
i think tmrw decides between me and cole, everyone else can go get stuffed with spain
Posted: Jul 5, 2010 5:37 pm
Just figured it all out, if the Netherlands win the cup, I win the cash.
Double partaaay!!!
Posted: Jul 5, 2010 6:17 pm
... and J9 is out of the cellar!
Posted: Jul 5, 2010 7:56 pm
I think kol 1945 is gonna clean up on this one. I'm out no matter what happens.
Posted: Jul 6, 2010 9:20 am
... and J9 is out of the cellar!

And I'm in! Half as many points as the leader. There is turmoil in the Cook household.
Posted: Jul 7, 2010 11:18 am
Spain wins, KCook wins.
Germany wins, Kol1945 gets it.
Holland wins, Jasper wins.

down to the wire!
Posted: Jul 7, 2010 3:43 pm
I kinda hope NED wins just so I don't finish a single point out of first.

Regardless, almost-victory tastes like carne asada pizza. (Still, nice climb up from the cellar, Lisa!)
Posted: Jul 7, 2010 3:49 pm
World Cup Final: Kandi vs Jasper. Good Luck!
Posted: Jul 7, 2010 4:02 pm | Edited by: eric o
...and following the race to the bottom- yes, the bracket currently in last place picked the US to win.
Posted: Jul 7, 2010 7:41 pm
going down to the basement. anybody want anything?...no?...Serbia?..towel?
Posted: Jul 7, 2010 8:32 pm
Posted: Jul 11, 2010 4:24 pm
Congrats KCook!
Posted: Jul 11, 2010 5:57 pm
Congrats, Kandi!
Posted: Jul 11, 2010 8:15 pm
Thanks guys.
Posted: Jul 11, 2010 11:26 pm
Congrats Kandi!
