So I finally took some time to tally up my scorecard over the first 16 games of the World Cup.
My scoring philosophy is that if the game is tied, there is no winner or loser so I don't get penalized for picking a team that ties.
Through the first round, I'm 7 wins and 3 loses. There were 6 ties in the first round. The teams that let me down were Spain (who'd have thought the Swiss would win that one), Cameroon (an African sentimental pick), and Algeria.
I'll keep you up to date as group play continues for another nine days!
