Inspired by Deadspin, I've started my own private pick 'em group for the World Cup, which starts Friday. You need to register (it's free) at ESPN.com, then all you need to do is pick the winners. What I know about soccer can fit in a thimble, so if you do even a minimum of research you're almost sure to beat me.
Anyway, if you want to join my World Cup pick 'em group. submit a comment to this post with your email address, and I'll send you the URL and password. (I won't actually publish your comment, so your email address won't be seen.)
And if you're an England fan, here's a jazzy England rah-rah song. Lions, show your teeth! Heh, does the US team have anything quite this loopy? Uh, you probably shouldn't answer that.
