Okay, we're about four days to kick-off now, and the anticipation is slowly building. And so, finding myself with a bit of time on my hands, I thought I might as well go ahead and do the preliminary draw for the GamesBids 2018 World Cup sweep. So, far, however, we've only had 14 members nominating to take part (or having been nominated by others - I included Faster's nominees, and myself through Scotguy into the mix. So there's more than a few blanks in the chart. But more on that later. First, the official pots for the draw, to show that due process is being followed: And now, drumroll please.... the draw! Time to find out what you got: Happy with your team? That's up to you. Whether you are or not, there's some good news ahead. Firstly, there's plenty of good teams (in fact, most of the favourites as far as I can tell) that haven't ben drawn yet. What does that mean - well, firstly, there's plenty of spots open for anyone who still wants to enter the sweep, and plenty of good teams you'd have a chance of getting. And seeing as we have less than half the sports allocated, I'm going to do a second chance draw on the day of the kick-off. Basically, all the names (and hopefully there'll be a few new ones by then) will go back in the pot and you'll be drawn a second team. You can then choose to support either, or both of the teams you've been given. Double to fun! Anyway, celebrate or curse the luck you've had in the draw so far, and get ready for another chance in the draw come Friday. And don't forget, anybody new can still sign up. See you then. In the meantime... hmmmm, what can I do with Switzerland???????
I guess it’s time to see if there’s any interest in doing a sweep. Can’t we get 32 members to put their names down for a draw? It’s not like anybody has to do anything built to post “I’m in” - and then maybe assume your new team’s identity for the duration of our trip through Mother Russia. If we do get the numbers, I’ll do a draw and then do a nice graphic chart for the tournament. Anyway, let’s se how interest goes. Just post in this thread if you wanna take part. Hopefully I can do the draw a day or two before the kick-off.
