    Heyya everybody. The fantasy game is up. Our group is:
    Yahoo Fantasy Sports - World Soccer Pick'em 2014 - There was a problem

    The password is a certain kitchen appliance associated with our resident Jedi master, all lowercase. PM me if you can't figure out what it is.

    You can change your prediction for a game up to 5 minutes before each game. Predicting the outcome and the correct score are worth the same (2 points for predicting the winner and another 2 points for predicting the correct score).

    As always, please make sure to either use your forum name or some sort of reference to your pf.com identity so we know which bracket belongs to who.

    Looking forward to it guys!

    Argh, that didn't work as I expected it. If you click on the link above you get an error. Please PM me if you're interested in joining and I'll send you the signup link. I already sent to a few people who were interested.

    What a half! CJ and Laimbeer are the only ones who correctly predicted that Croatia would score one. Let's see which one will prevail.

    Aaaaand... max points go to BL, thanks to an improbable goal at stoppage time. Nice job!

    I wrote a computer program based on genetic algorithms to simulate the matches and I ran it for 20 days on a super-parallel, high-performance cluster of computer workstations.

    Technically, I am tied with one or two people. Actually, I was just over there looking for my name.

    Great half in the Spain-Netherlands game. The Dutch equalizer was a thing of beauty. Now, we need a nice scoreless half where defense reigns supreme. I'm sure S.J. agrees with me on that. Ha!

    What are the odds of picking 7 games and only getting one correct? Wait, let me just ask CJ....

    1 in 64 (assuming they were all coin flips).

    1 in 128 if you're setting that condition beforehand of getting exactly 1 right. Note that excludes getting 0 right.

    There are three possible outcomes in each game so it's alot less likely to get 7/8 than 1/8 by chance.
