    Hey guys, I’ve seen online a few people having sweeps on the Soccer World Cup. Sorry this is a bit late, but who’s interested? There are no prizes, it’s just a bit of fun, but it gives us some teams to support and follow for the next month. So if you want to have a go, just say so here…

    Well, we’re not actually playing for $$$ or prizes here, so ours is a bit different but basically, I will draw out teams at random for each of the people involved so everyone has a team (or teams) and if their team goes on to win the World Cup, they win.

    Have you never heard of a Melbourne Cup sweep?

    Count me in. I’d like a team who wears bright colours, please, so I can wear them during the tournament – that should brighten up some dull midwinter days.

    There’s actually a bit of disappointment around the place. A lot of people didn’t and probably still don’t know yet that SBS will only show some of the group games, not all. If you want to see all games, you have to sign up to Optus or something. Not interested in that personally, so I’ll just stick with what SBS gives us.

    Yeah I’ll join in.

    We have done a sweepstake at work and I have Brazil and Spain!! Wooohoo watch England actually do what they’ve been promising for the last 40 years…….!

    We have a young team this time, it might bode well, it probably may not…  :acute:
