The 2014 World Cup will finally begin on Thursday and that means you have precious few hours left to lock your divine vision for how the tournament will unfold into Yahoo's lovely World Soccer Pick 'em game and ensure all of your friends can gaze upon your genius.
You can join the game here and view the group-stage pick distribution of all competitors as your fill in your own choices. Once you've set your picks (don't worry, they autosave as you do each one), it's time to join the groups you would like to try and dominate.
You can find the Dirty Tackle group here.
You can also join former U.S. captain Carlos Bocanegra's group here.
Then there's NHL goaltender Roberto Luongo's group here.
And Bolton and U.S. national team midfielder Stu Holden is offering up a signed shirt to the winner of his group. (If you win the DT group, your prize will be me cursing your name very loudly.)
You can join multiple groups, so feel free to make your presence known in each. And if you to know what Bocanegra has down, I can tell you that he has the U.S. beating Ghana 2-1 and a taking a point against Germany, Japan beating Colombia 1-0, and France (where he played for three years) winning all three of their matches.
As for my picks, when you watch the matches and see the final score, just know that what I put down wasn't that.
