    SJ has stormed out to an early lead, but after a few terrible picks The Panda is back on the case and out in front on the tiebreaker with the mighty Laimbeer.

    I'm not that great, I have been burnt by Spain twice! SJ has an unfair advantage, since he is from a football country!!!

    SJ will come back to the pack. The real futball expert will prevail in the end...

    You only get two points for the group stage, Bill. This tournament is wide open for the taking. I'm not worried.

    I hate to give up my secret, but I actually just copied my picks from this elephant:

    I've been analyzing my picks the last few days to see if I could do better.
    I am 6 of 9 with 2 correct picks. My biggest mistake was switching the
    score on the Costa Rica versus Italy game. I switched it to the actual
    correct score. but went back to a 2-2 tie...lost 4 points...

    Didn't gain any ground on the guy using Laimbeer's name.
    At least up to third place from 6th anyways...
