Knockout round: missed three countries, misplaced two

Quarterfinals: missed three countries

Semifinals: missed all four

In the end, underestimating Italy after their performance against the US, overestimating Brazil against weak opponents, and an unhealthy bias for Korea made for some pretty poor final picks.

I think I'll try to get hired as a photographer for 2010. Who wants to go to some Revolution games?
