Fancy predicting the outcome of World Cup 2011?

With the World Cup less than three weeks away, every Tom, Dick and Hariharan has an opinion as to how the World Cup is going to pan out, and I suspect you do too. So, why not have some fun while doing it?

This is an open invitation to all cricket freaks, to join my group on ESPN Cricket Pick ’em, and try your luck at becoming the next famous World Cup outcome predicting octopus in town! Who knows – you might get to appear on TV before tragically passing away a few months after the World Cup!

(The password for the group is ‘I heart cricket’)

Paul the Octopus - now sleeping with the fishes (metaphorically)

  1. No thanks! Not sure which is harder to forecast…the weather or sports!🙂

    But what the heck! I say 90% chance of the WC being won by a team whose name ends with the letter “a.”🙂

    And 5% chance for Pakistan and England, each.

  2. Am I the only one not fancying to predict a WC outcome? Probably because I’m always so self-centered to be concerned with predicting only that what I fancy.

    “Who knows – you might get to appear on TV before tragically passing away a few months after the World Cup!” – was that deliberately done to scare cricket freaks away?😉

    1. Boo! spoilsport🙂

      Hmmm…the reference to Paul the Octopus was not perhaps thought through! Anyways, a true cricket freak should not be scared away by the fear of death!
