World Cup Fever

The World Cup begins on Friday.  Having lived in Europe off and on for almost 10 years, I know that football is King here!  The people here do love their football.

So, who is your favorite team?  Of course, I will be “rooting” for the US team, however, I realize their prospects are slim.  Brazil and Argentina are always favorites.  I do believe that the US team has a good chance of making it to the second round.  It will be interesting to see how they play against England.

Here are my picks for each Group:

A: France; B: Argentina; C: England; D: Germany; E: Nederlands; F: Italy; G: Brazil; H: Spain

I don’t think I am ready to go out on a limb to pick a winner yet.  Let’s get through the first round and see what happens!
