    So who you putting down? I went for England purely because I would feel so gutted if they did win it and I had voted for someone else.

    I would choose Finland if i could!!! :D No i chose Brazil too, its just dumb that everyone is choosing brazil, it will be harder for any of us to win if we all choose the same team!!? :( (not that i would win anyway, im the unlucky b@stard)

    Yeah I'm wondering the same thing. I'm also wondering what happens if you fry it by OCing before you have to give it back.
