We'll be running a World Cup bracket contest, starting with the first World Cup game Thursday. Follow SOHMadness to pick the winners and see the leaderboard updates. Rules and prizes will be posted in the blog Monday.
Let me guess. Some socialists from a shit hole of a country will win at kick ball.
Yes because a organized sport is always kickball you dumbass
No just soccer asshole.
This is about sports when I have those type polls disabled until football starts again. Interesting. I'm guessing this under announcements too for some reason?
Soccer? No thanks.
I won the NCAA bracket, so I'll give someone else a shot here ;)
Did Scotland get in? No? Then back to stalking the Russian women's curling team.
The worlds greatest sport! USA all the way!!
I predict that Brazil is going to win the inaugural.
Bleh this still wouldn't get me to watch all that soccer
I won't watch soccer either. But it is fun to play. I pick based on the names of the teams or their team colors or whatever.
@smiley And the guys are not bad to look at either. Italian squad, am I right?
Who cares, it's soccer? Yeah for ties!!!
Overtime and shoot outs after the group play is over.
So we have to wait before we don't have to put up with ties?
It's still only soccer, right?
Thanks for making it from a separate user.
Thank you tony for this!
USA, I'm sorry to say, doesn't look like it's getting past the first round. Portugal is very good. Ghana is good, I think better than us. Germany, even without one of their best players will should beat us.
We will need our whole team to be great!
I don't know, yesterday's match against Nigeria gave me hope. The US played well.
The US team is more than talented enough to advance out of the group stage. That, and they got a favorable draw in getting Germany in the last game.
Isn't Portugal missing Ronaldo too? I thought he got injured in a friendly so even better odds for us.
I think Ronaldo will be back in time. But Portugal tends to play average internationally these days.
Come on, just because you don't understand it or like it doesn't mean it sucks. It's a different sport, I don't like American football mainly because I don't understand the rules and can't stand all the commercials but it doesn't mean it sucks. IMHO.
I understand the basics of soccer and find it extremely boring. Baseball>Football>Basketball>Soccer are the four major sports from greatest to least imo
Maybe if they changed the name to Futball we'd show an interest. Soccer sound so little kidish!
Futbol or Football. Futball is a made up word.
Ok, look it up in the Urban dictionary.
I don't know how successful that will be. Americans and soccer go together like ice cream on pizza
MLS is the fastest growing sport in the US, you guys have a decent team (Rapids) that has a lot of followers. My Sounders matches draw in 30K minimum spectators at home.
Ice cream on pizza must be delicious, should try new things once in a while :)
MLS will rival MLB in 5 to 10 years. Guaranteed. Potentially 4 new teams in three years. Beginning to develop a real promotion and relegation pyramid scheme. It's only a matter of time. More money more TV time. It's happening.
Hey! I like ice cream on pizza.....and I still don't like soccer. I'd rather watch paint dry.
I don't know much about soccer, but I will play!
Argentina wins it all. That is my prediction. Completely unbiased, of course. ;-)
I'll try. But I will be in Brazil!!!!
Have fun and be safe. The place looks like a madhouse.
Look for me in the TV. I will be the guy holding a "Play SoHMADNESS" board!
Can we have it comment here to make it easier to follow. I have problems with the search function...
I also have problems with the search function. I can never find the poll and by the time I do, the voting is closed :(
It's case sensitive. Search under people.
