Fantasy World Cup

Laura e-mailed me a link for fantasy World Cup: has created a Fantasy World Cup Game as part of its comprehensive coverage of the World Cup on the web. By picking 6 players and a team defense you can track your team’s progress as the real teams play in Germany. You can also track the teams of people you know, creating some friendly rivalry. Once the games begin you can make 3 substitutions per round. Points are accumulated and lost according to positive and negative aspects, for example, scoring goals and getting red cards.

The link to sign up for the fantasy game is

I signed up and let's just say that everyone is just playing for second. Go Hooligans!

I am the Flash Fielders. I got Germany's defense, and they have already given up 2 goals. At least they won, huh?

I picked Bellock and he didn't play (calf injury).
England looked pretty laid back this morning, but they looked good. That midfield is very strong and if they are healthy going into the 2nd round, they will be very dangerous.
