It couldn’t really be a Wicked Chops Fantasy anything without a major WAG involved, right? Diana Chaves is apparently a Cristiano Ronaldo castaway picked up by Portugal’s César Peixoto. We found her in BleacherReport’s Hottest WAGs of Group G
For those of us playing in the Wicked Chops FC Fantasy Pool
, it all starts to mean something now that we move through the group stage.

Our group has 203 people in it … and one of my squads — Go Alexi Lalas! — is tied for 15th place!
Yes, I said one of my squads, plural. I first saw @Chazbeaner, the group’s creator, had two teams … Chazbeaner Real and Chazbeaner Wish. I was reading Real like ray-al, not reel. Anyhow, I don’t think I can win the prizes anyway, so screw off. My other team, Ditka, is doing less well. But I did recognize the power of Uruguay. And in both flights got USA #1, ENG #2 … But I didn’t give the Mexicans enough credit, and I thought too highly of the Serbians chances as a post-war, rebuilt nation to have the heart to be the first-round Cinderella.
Check it out … Soccerati has partnered with the dudes at Wicked Chops for a joint World Cup fantasy bracket venture. Actual prizes will be in play. (What they are we don’t know yet, but @AlCantHang has offered to buy the winner a shot of SoCo … so we’ve got at least that much already to play for.)
Anyhow, here are the deets on getting in on the action. Sign up and forward to your friends — enourage them to play on ESPN in the Wicked Chops FC group:
First select which two teams will advance out of each the eight groups. The order you select them – 1st or 2nd – determines where they are placed in the 16-team bracket. Then predict the winner of the 15 bracket matches throughout the Finals. All picks lock with the first kickoff on Friday, June 11, 2010. Good luck!
