Your quest: Pick the winners of all the knockout games remaining in the World Cup (except the third place game because I don't think the teams involved really care who wins.)
Your prize: A Team Togo t-shirt (XL size).
The scoring system will be:
For every team you have correct in the Round of 16: 1 points
For every team you have correct in the quarterinals: 2 points
For every team you have correct in the seminfinals: 4 points
For guessing the champion correctly: 8 points
Tiebreakers: 1) Number of goals scored by winner 2) Number of goals scored by loser. If the final is decided by penalties, the number of goals will be the score at the end of extra time.
To enter, send an email to this address firstname.lastname@example.org
Put "WC 2006" in the subject line
Write down your guesses this way:
Round of 16:
Team 1 - score
Team 2 - score
The shirt is actually on backorder and I reserve the right to find something else.
Also tell me your "nom de Toaster" so I can update the scores as we go along.
If I don't get five entries before the first match of the second round kicks off at 8 am PT Saturday, the contest is called off. The quota has been reached! Game on!
The final arbiter of who wins is me.
Everybody is eligible to compete for the prize except me.
