Day 3 thread:

France vs. Australia 

Argentina vs Iceland

Peru vs. Denmark

Croatia vs. Nigeria

 

Will France underperform as I predicted? The first 40 seems to say yes.

Will fan favorite Iceland steal a point from Lionel Messi and the lackluster Argentine side?

Other storylines?

I am considering switching to Satellite, but I am worried about snow and rain losing games.  Some people say that this is a problem from the 1990s and that a properly pointed satellite will be fine today, others say no, it is still a problem.

So is rain and snow going to ruin football games?

Are there any other issues to know about with satellite TV?

A preference for one satellite service over the other?

The World Cup, one of, if not the greatest sporting event in the world is upon us once again. But, sadly, for the first time in a long time USA did not make it. So, what is a soccer fan, even a casual one, to do? Don't worry - the World Cup is still full of passion, excitement and compelling story lines. I'm not the biggest soccer fanatic on mgoblog, but I LOVE the World Cup. Some of my fondest memories growing up and even in adulthood involve the World Cup.

World Cup officially kicks off in less than two and a half hours with Saudi Arabia vs Russia!

Who is your official pick to win it all?

For futures, does anyone have any bets placed?

 

I'll start.  I like France to win it all, but for futures  I didn't place anything on a team to win it all as I think "The Big 4" are all priced about right.  

For future bets, I got:

Group H - Winner of Group: Colombia +135

South Korea stage one points under 2½ -160

Tunisia stage one points under 2½ +120
