Checking In on Our World Cup Pool

With just one game remaining that factors into the scoring for our World Cup pool — ESPN's Bracket Predictor spits on you, consolation game! — the leader, with 103 points, is J. Beckner's entry, titled "Losing and getting cancer." If Spain triumphs Sunday, J. Beckner is our winner and can write a post about anything, peppering it with all the Kenny Powers quotes his heart desires. If the Netherlands wins, A Heaney's entry, "RVP for MVP," finishes first. As for your Sports Sectioners, Josh Dean and Will Leitch — both of whom predicted that the Netherlands would defeat Spain in the final — have 85 and 81 points, respectively, while Joe DeLessio, who took a chance by predicting that those upstarts from Brazil would defeat Spain for the title, has 68 points.
