    Anyone still wanting to participate can, but you forfeit the first two games.

    Standing after Day 1:

    49th Parallel    3 + 4 = 7

    50Below          3 + 3 = 6

    Don-Bruino      2 + 4 = 6

    Macfact            3 + 0 = 3

    Re: World Cup Knockout Pool

    OK, just so I understand this soccer thing... the US played 3 preliminary games and won 1.  This managed to get them into the next round after losing a game they needed to win, but they backed in anyway.

    After beating some cupcake and blowing a late lead to tie in the other 2 games?

    And for this accomplishment, sports in the US are now revolutionized.

    OK, and in other news, the only thing of any interest was a guy bit someone for the third time, said it was no big deal, and is being rewarded with endorsements for McDonalds and NetFicks.

    Yep, great game ya got there.

    Soxfan, you are a North American Born and Bred Sports Fan. You are not supposed to understand Worldly Sports; so, do not try.

    Go watch your baseball and American Football and then head out to some joint to have your burger, fries and beer. Everyone will be happy - including you.

    Yes, we do have a great game. A game with real athletes!
