I'll try to elaborate more, but unless I'm missing something, only Falcon, Bazcovic, Babs or myself have chances of winning at this point.

I'd be surprised if I haven't been totally mathematically eliminated. Of course, I could figure it out if I wanted to.

I still have Germany points. You have 0 points. So if NED def. ESP and GER def. URU, I will finish 3rd alone  :third-place: without getting a single point from my champion pick!!!

hey!! thanks alot Chris :) even so I'm not much sure if I'm happy or not. Spain is just one step from winning a WC! Thanks mostly to Barça, otherwise I'd never support them. I like the Netherlands alot too, hard to say which team I'll be rooting for on sunday, once I no longer need the extra points for the pick em challenge:)

Yeah 7 Barcelona started the semi final didn't they and 3 Real Madrid so a huge Barcelona contingent there isn't there. So going to be a tough choice for you in the final then with you liking both teams and not needing the points in this game. I think Spain may just repeat the events of 2008 by following a Rafa Roland Garros/Wimbledon double with the World Cup this time instead of the European Championships.
