If, like me and literally dozens of other Americans, you are paying attention to the World Cup, why not take a gander at the World Cup Pool? I signed up for the pool created by Publius at Fourthbranch.com. Set up your picks here, then join the group "The Fourth Branch" and use the intuitive password "fourthbranch."
While I predicted Germany to win it all, I'll still cry Avanti! for for Italy.
