    Simple Pick'Em game for 2011 Gold Cup. Winner is the player with the highest point total at the end of Gold Cup. All picks must be made on or before June 4th.

    Here's the scoring breakdown:

    Name the eight teams that advance from group stage (1 point each)
    Name the four team that advance to the semifinals (2 points each)
    Name the two teams that play in the final (4 points each)
    Pick the winner of Gold Cup (10 points)
    Name the player who wins the Golden Boot Award: 5 Points

    Tiebreaker 1: What is the final score of the championship game?
    Tiebreaker 2: What are the total goals scored by Group A Teams during Group Play?


    The winning entry will get 72 hours of colors, and will be bumped up to a week if they have a perfect score (not counting tiebreakers).

    To sign up, just post your predictions in this thread.
