Nobody won the football contest

June 24, 2014 • 6:07 pm

Well, nobody even guessed the outcomes of all of today’s games, much less the scores.  One of the big problems was that hardly anyone predicteed that Costa Rica would tie with England. But even those who did foundered on the Greece/Ivory Coast prediction, with those who got the tie correct also predicting a loss for Greece.

So, for the first time in website history, nobody wins.

HOWEVER, perhaps there will be another contest tomorrow, given that I have a Jerry Coyne the Cat keychain that’s burning a hole in my pocket.  Start thinking about the winners and scores of the Nigeria/Argentina, Iran/Bosnia Herzogovina, Honduras/Switzerland, and Ecuador/France games.

Let’s hope nobody gets bitten.

  1. I never believed that any sports contest could be as incredibly nerve wracking as football… and the World Cup takes the tension to unbearable heights. Watching the USA Portugal match was an episode of nail biting terror, the letdown of the last minute tie was absolute torture.
    Only drinking a lot of beer can mitigate the pain. I’m looking forward to USA Germany.. but now sensibly in possession of two sixpacks of Coors.

  2. Let’s give it a try… After all, God does not play soccer with the Universe…

    Nigeria 1 Argentina 1
    Iran 0 Bosnia 2
    Honduras 0 Switzerland 3
    Ecuador 1 France 0
