    Not sure what the guidelines of starting these type of threads on these forums, but here goes nothing.

    First game takes place June 12th, when the host country takes on Crotia.

    Who do you guys predict will meet in the finals? Who do you think will be the eventual winner?

    The US wins on a penalty kick from Landon Donovan who is added to the team as an injury replacement. :D

    I just want the World Cup to go down without an international incident or someone getting killed.

    Brazil over Germany in the final. U.S. beats Ghana, loses to Portugal and Germany to finish third in its group.

    I think we get 1 point in the group by tying Ghana.

    Actually an unlikely final, given that if both win their groups, they'd meet in the semifinals.

    If England gets out of their group, they will lose on penalties for the 645th time.

    US gets swept out and soccer never arrives.

    It always cracks me up during the Olympics to see women with BRA emblazoned across their chests.

    Have no idea who will win or advance to the final but I do know the Toronto area will be overrun with cars sporting flags of countries their drivers have probably never been to and have a very slim connection - if any - to. And the pubs will be full of drunken, raging Englishmen. And Scotsmen provoking them when England flames out in the opening round.

    There are actually Brazilian sports bars in Boston. I plan to give those a wide berth, thanks.

    Greektown, Little Italy and Little Portugal in Toronto will be jumping and impossible to navigate on game days.
