I've been involved in these before and can run it through Yahoo Sports if there is interest.
Have a look at http://ca.wc.fantasysports.yahoo.com/
I thought a commitment of a nice 5'er of what you like to smoke per entrant, winner takes all.
If you want in pm me and I'll set it up and give you the password.
You then put in your picks and get ready to watch some real football.:tu

I am betting the venues won't be ready and it gets cancelled, along with the Olympics!

Very few things in life are certain.
The World Cup will not be cancelled.

Most popular sport in the world. And for good reason.

It will be winner takes all. A fiver of what you like to smoke from each of the others.

As expected, down near the bottom. Just looked at how this is scored as well, seems like the group will start to separate after the group rounds. Also didn't realize you get more points for picking the correct scores, guess I shoulda put more effort into that than just cflicking the +/- buttons until I felt like stopping :r

Darryl, I shipped your winnings today. I've never shipped anything to Canada before. I'm embarrassed to admit that it didn't even occur to me I'd have to fill out a customs declaration form. That made me panic a bit. I hope the damn box reaches you.

It's not in the system yet. Already checked. :lv
