Guess World Cup Results And Win $250 American Gift Card

For those of you that weren’t aware, tonight is the World Cup finals, between Argentina and Germany. I’ll be the first to admit I’m merely a “fair weather” soccer fan. I fanatically enjoy soccer every four years during the World Cup, and then go back to liking real sports, like the spelling bee and curling until the next World Cup comes around.

Anyway, I’m personally very excited about the World Cup finals tonight, given that Germany is in it. Last week I even reorouted my travels from the US to Europe to fly Lufthansa first class, figuring it would be a hoot to fly Lufthansa right as the Brazil vs. Germany game was wrapping up.

Tonight I’ll be watching the World Cup finals in Amsterdam, and am very excited, regardless of whether Germany wins or loses.

I figured I’d share some of the excitement on the blog by giving away a $250 American Airlines gift card.

To enter, simply leave a comment below letting me know which team will win the World Cup today and what the score will be. You have until 3PM ET/12PM PT to enter, since that’s when the game starts. The winner will be randomly selected, regardless of whether your guess is right or not.

One entry per email address, please, and if the randomly selected winner guesses both the winner and the score correctly, I’ll double the prize and make it a $500 American Airlines gift card.

If you’d like to keep me company tonight during the World Cup, I’ll be drinking (something other than beer, cause that’s gross) and eating pretzels and will be on Twitter, so please join me.

As of now it’s just me and my large bosomed Lufthansa World Cup duck hanging out…


And if you don’t have a team you’re rooting for, you really should be rooting for Germany. If for no other reason, do it for Andy…


May the best team win!


  1. You are asking me to choose between my country of Germany and my wife’s country of Argentina! A tough one… On a whim, I’ll go with Argentina.

  2. 25-0 for Germany šŸ™‚
    At least based on how they played against Brazil, they should have 25 goals at least!

  3. As a brazilian, I’ll root for germany (despite the 7×1), but I think Argentina will win 1×0.

  4. Hey, if you’re in Amsterdam, feel free to join my dad and myself to watch it here (near Utrecht). Can’t imagine I’d ever say this, but I’ll be rooting Germany tonight šŸ™‚

  5. It’s going to be Argentina in a shootout after a 1-1 tie. Penalty kicks 4-3 for Argentina. Take it to the bank!!!!


    Vielleicht sollte ich nicht so viel Bier trinken.

  7. Tied 1-1 after regulation, tied 2-2 after OT, Germany wins 4-3 on PK’s. You heard it here first!

  8. Ben,

    Correct me if I am wrong, but 4pm ET is 10pm CET, hence already halftime in the game as it starts at 9pm CET.

    I will wait until shortly before 10pm then šŸ˜‰

  9. @ Mike — Good catch, updated the times. Thanks for the heads up. Get it in before 9PM CET if you can! šŸ˜€

  10. Germany beats Argentina, 3-1. Messi scores Argentina’s lone goal during the second half. One injury, two substitutions.
