It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark... and we're wearing sunglasses.

Yes please I'm in.

FYI All

I have run football competitions for my mates for the last 30 odd years. I do enjoy a sweep stake but too many of my mates complained including one who wouldn't shut up when he picked Greece for the Euros. It didn't stop him picking up his winnings though.

Anyway in addition to a sweep stake I tried to create a competition with a bit of skill. This is the one I have done for this World cup.

1. Select 2 teams from each qualifying group total 16.
2. 3 points for a win 1 for a draw. Once the knock out stage starts all games must be won so the team that goes through gets 3 points.
3. In addition to your 16 teams pick 4 teams you believe will reach the semi finals for a one off bonus of 3 points. These teams can either be from your 16 or 4 different ones. If your semi final team is one of your 16 and they win you get 3 points for a win plus a 3 point bonus.

The person with the most points at the end wins if a tie the prize is shared.

It takes a little work and you need an excel spreadsheet so I keep this to about 7/8 friends. Still they seem to enjoy it and you can't blame luck.

Anyway sorry to digress looking forward to the sweep stake.

Update on my great idea.
My friends all delivered their picks at the very last minute and we all seem to have the same teams with the odd exception. Not a very good competition so I have frantically had to change the rules to add a bit of diversity. (Who said diversity isn't good) And of course everyone is complaining.

Every time I do this they moan about something but as it is every 2 years I forget until the next disaster comes along. Anyway I have decided that Tux's idea is the best even though I got Iran.
