    so I know it’s pretty late to the party since this thing starts Thursday. But seeing if their is any interest out there. Yahoo and google have abandoned the whole World Cup pick em thing for some reason. Probably because yahoo is slowly going under lol, don’t know about google tho. johnyb found this website https://bracketchallenge.fifa.com/ that does a pick em style. Trying to see how many we got interested before I throw out the rules for shipping but it will mostly be like all the other sports bifs

    Feel free to tag people you think will be interested

    I hate International footy. I will be watching hoping non of our players get hurt and hoping England lose and Harry Kane acores jack shit and claims he is great anyway.

    In if you need me.

    I don't know if this website is gonna work. It literally makes you pick the entire world cup before it starts. I was hoping for stages where we pick each stage of the world cup when it comes up.

    Isn't that basically like a March Madness bracket though? My selections going to be blown a long way before my predicted Uruguay-England final

    The world cup is big, apparently. Or is it the BIF that's 18 inches?

    I thought maybe you were announcing something to the world. I guess I was wrong.

    Okay - I created an account, but I am completely lost as to what I would be expected to do.

    I tried.

    first of all. you the man!!!!

    second. it's easy, just hover over picks. then click group picks. it will take you to a page with all the groups. use the arrows next to the teams to adjust how you think each group will come out. then click save ranks.

    let me know if you have any questions

    I'm way to slow at sending stuff out now to get involved in anything anymore.
