IDYFT Presents A Yahoo World Cup Pick'em Brought To You By...Jesus!

The fine and nice and handsome lads here at I Dislike Your Favorite Team want you to enjoy the World Cup as much as possible.  And what makes any sport better?  Gambling, obviously.  Many sports would not exist without it (Jai Alai, as awesome as you are, I'm looking at you)

So I, as the brains and charisma and other stuff of the site, invite you to partake in what I'm going to call our Fantasy Footie Jam.*

If you have a Yahoo ID, it could not be easier.  (And it is pretty easy to grab a Yahoo ID iffen you don't have one)

You simply want to go to here.

Then, when prompted, enter the following information:

Group ID#: 13716
Password: bradleylizardman

It may seem intimidating at first, but really it is quite simple.  The competition comes in two parts--you predict the games for the Round Robin, who wins, who ties, and you guess the score.  When that is all done, and we get into single elimination, the whole thing resets, and you play Pick'Em.  It's going to be awesome.  And the winner will receive the ultimate proof that their picking is blessed by heaven:  Soccer Playin' Jesus.  And that's not code for Lionel Messi.  I'm guessing, somewhere, Kaka approves:

*I'll instantly regret calling it that.

I'm an idiot, possible. So I went on and did the first two rounds. When it got to the knockout rounds the teams didn't auto-populate. Am I supposed to know who fills in those slots?

Not at all Gregory.

First thing is that you can change your selections in the first round up until 5 minutes before game time.

Secondly, the game plays in two distinct rounds, and will become straight pick'em after Stage 1.

So just come back after the Group Stage is done, and pick based on the survivors. With points being awarded for getting scores correct, the likelihood of a tie is pretty damn slim.
