Saturday WC + Con Player of the Day ++ Standings

Games on tap and unlike yesterday (meaning Friday) all these games look lopsided. The games:

1) First game is Argentina - Iran in Belo Horizonte. 9am pacific, 5pm in England (I mean now you Brits have a team to root for!) , 6pm in most of western Europe, 8:30 pm in Iran. First of two games for Argentina where they fine-tune their game into a destructive force of face melting badness. Seriously, Messi should migrate no further than 10 feet from the Iran goal.

2) Second game is Germany - Ghana in Fortaleza. Noon pacific, 8pm in England, 9pm in western Europe and Ghana and western Africa. I'll be interesting to see how Ghana both approach this game and if they (as expected) start to lose how they handle it. Strong rumors after the USA game had various players pissed off at management. And they had a point: why the hell wasn't their Boateng starting? At any rate you got the Clash of the Boatengs and although Germany should win Ghana is easily the best of the three underdog teams on the day.

3) Last game...Bosnia - Nigeria in Cuiaba. Game time is 3pm pacific, 4 pm in Honduras, 11pm England and Lagos, midnight in western Europe. Lots of offense but Bosnia's superior organization should rip up the Super Eagles.

But what does this mean for the Con Game? For almost all of us a windfall of points: 60-70--80-maybe 90 points could be won today. We'll be seeing score totals over 500 tomorrow and most folks will be over 450, easy. Let's take a couple of examples. Gizzardfanny has 30 (Germany) + Argentina (31) + Bosnia (8) = 69 points and she'll probably drop in the standings (sorry. She'll be rooting for Nigeria)

- Mathieug? Germany (30) + Argentina (29) + Bosnia ( 9) = 68.

- Ben Corson? Germany (29) + Argentina (32) + Bosnia ( 17) = 78.

- Retancourt? Germany (29) + Argentina (32) + Bosnia ( 13) = 74.

- Larrick23? Germany (29) + Argentina (32) + Bosnia ( 19) = 80.

- Strides85? Germany (30) + Argentina (31) + Bosnia ( 13) = 74.

- Davie Porter-Zoo? Germany (29) + Argentina (31) + Bosnia ( 1-and we wonder why he's in last) = 61.

- Pigilito? Germany (30) + Argentina (31) + Bosnia ( 17) = 78.

- ursula? Germany (26) + Argentina (31) + Bosnia ( 23) = 80.

- Alans 1472? Germany (30) + Argentina (32) + Bosnia ( 27) = 89-the possible high score of the day for the guy in 26th place.

Con game player of the day is Bought with Blood!!!!!!!
