@fbaezer,
When I saw the post, there were just 2. Be careful, Fbaezer, of pissing off this now 64 year old redneck. I may not know football like the hot blooded Europeans or the rabid fans to our south.
I will win this contest. Mark my words.
All I have to figure out is how the game is played.

@realjohnboy,
I'll be verrrry careful, indeed.
Not because of you, old man, but because of the rabid hound you menaced me with.

6 teams in.
I hope it'll be at least double than that when I come back home, a week from now... 'cause I'm going to Los Cabos. Smile

I plan to be back on time to push in some more participants.

I'll work on some folks while you are away. I found a thread from 6 or 8 months ago re football.
Here are some of the participants: Diest TKO, Walter Hinteler, Spendius, Calamity Jane and Tico.
Osso, Imur and Ehbeth have indicated an interest.

I am here - remember the last time so well, since I was right there in Germany
when it all happened. Won't be in South Africa though, too far and to dangerous. I'll be gone to Europe for part of the WM season though....
Anyway here is my list.

1. Christiano Ronaldo (Portugal)
2. Gonzalo Higuain (Argentina)
3.Miroslav Klose (Germany
4. Landon Donovan (USA)
5. David Villa (Spain)

@realjohnboy,

@ossobuco,
How the hell should I know when the deadline is, osso? I am just as clueless about the World Cup as you are. I told Pancho I would chase potential players in his absence. I think you have at least another week. It could be June 12th.

@realjohnboy,
Much as I guessed. I'm still reading, not that I understand the a2k game itself, not having looked back to see what Pancho said.

I'm taking notes.

Oh, but he told us the deadline. I just forgot it.

@ossobuco,
I did pick Klose, but that's just scrawling notes.

The first game is on June 11 between South Africa - Mexico and
France - Uruguay - by then you should be done osso.

@CalamityJane,
Thanks, CJ, I'll gather my wits by then. Mexico, (South Africa), France, Uruguay? I'll pick Mexico.. Maybe not all the way through it..

@ossobuco,
Yes, I think the game SA : MX will be easy with Mexico winning.
France against Uruguay will be interesting, but in the end France will win.

@CalamityJane,
I have a mild predilection to uruguay for no reason but hemispheric bias (also, didn't they do well before?), which is, no reason. I don't know enough, re the teams.

Tapping, re the teams.

@fbaezer,
Rooney will get injured (metatarsal) against the USA. Christiano Ronaldo will be unable to participate due to a bleached-eyelid-gone-wrong incident. And Thierry Henry will develop stigmata in his left hand (which neither the team-doctor nor any of the medical staff will notice). Thus, the top 5 goalscorers in round 1 will be:

1. Humberto SUAZO (Chile)
2. Stanislav SESTAK (Slovakia)
3. FABIANO (Brazil)
4. David VILLA (Spain)
5. Robin VAN PERSIE (Netherlands)

@lmur,
Ok, I'm still here, tapping. Look at all the names on my list!

Nag me if I don't post. I'm enjoying a few cronologs on the game, while still reading as indubitably stupid.. probably true.
