    I think if England can get pass Brazil in the Semi's I fancy them to win it all. What does everyone think? How good is Italy this year? Do you think they will come out of their group even?

    I like the US team, shame they got a rough draw.

    I like Brazil to win but think this is Argentina's year. If not Brazil than I would like in order Portugal, Mexico or USA. The reason I don't have USA first is because you got to pay your dues first.

    I am a Brazilian and American citizen, so wither one would be great. But this year I would really like the US to win though that is very unlikely. I should be watching all 64 games in High Def which will be great!

    I think the Seahawks are going to take it all.

    Love watching football in HD. I could see the US comming out of their group obviuosly at the expense of Italy or Chez. That team is good.

    I think it will be hard to stop Brazil, they dismantled Germany and Argentina last year in the confederations cup. I think maybe only England can stop them. If they play up to their potential. Only 4 mths now.

    Argentina lost to Croatia 3-2 (!) last week and Germany was crushed 4-1 by Italy(!!) Are the Italians really that good? Is Germany in trouble, or did they just have a bad day? Were they sandbagging? USA beat Poland 1-0 in a second-half snowstorm; the Poles looked like they were better in the first half, but the USA got it together in the second.

    Also, Czech tied Turkey (after blowing a 2-goal lead late) and Ghana lost 1-0 to Mexico. Both of these are good signs for Italy and the USA. Turkey didn't qualify for the WC this time.

    These were just "friendly" matches, of course, and YMMV. Still, it was an "International" date, so all players were allowed for call-up and most of the WC-bound teams used the opportunity to help decide on their WC rosters, so the players all had a lot at stake.

    Group E could realistically end (I'm hoping) 1. Italy, 2. USA, 3. Cz, 4. Ghana. Beyond that, in the later stages, who knows?

    Maybe I'll be watching in HD! Hope so.

    You know, with the line-up that the Dominicans will have from 1-9, I think that they have to be the favorites to win the WC of Baseball! ;)

    I didn't realize Italy was that good, to demolish Germany like that 4-1. They will win their group no problem, then its a huge dog fight between the US and Chech. I have to give the edge to the eastern europeans.

    I think Germany is done, I bet they end up getting knocked out in the second round by Sweeden or England.
