The Dribble: The Worst 2010 World Cup Guide You'll Ever Read

Welcome to the Worst 2010 World Cup Guide You'll Ever Read.

32 International Teams will start the 2010 World Cup of Football tonight in South Africa... and wdnicolson.blogspot.com isn't going to pretend to know more than we already do.

But in the next few paragraphs we will certainly show you that isn't much as it is.

We're keeping it simple. We list the Groups - we give our top two finishers and we predict each game all the way to the World Cup Final on July 12.

Obviously as an Australian - this blog will be supporting the Mighty Socceroos at all hours of the morning over the next month but we know the team's limitations... even if that means getting beaten in the World Cup Final by Argentina. Such is Football.

Something you should be aware of...
Our advice: Beware shrinkage in Buenos Aires in July, Diego...

Not sure what shrinkage is? Let Jerry Seinfeld and George Costanza educate you...

Before you ask the question - let me answer it for you...
How the heck do you have Australia finishing 3rd!!!

For a start that Tim Cahill (above) is pretty good... and although it is clear as day Australia has been given a rather biased passage through these World Cup Finals in this Guide - remember we didn't proclaim this to be the most accurate and objective World Cup Guide Available... in fact we stanby our inital assessment that it is the Worst World Cup Guide in History!

But if we're right... we'll look like geniuses. If we're wrong... we're just being patriotic.

Win Win I say.

GO THE SOCCEROOS!
