2010 FIFA World Cup Expert Picks: Finals Results

The deed is done. The month-long, quadrennial athletic tournament the U.S. doesn’t care about is now over. After a thrilling 64 matches, Spain has emerged victorious, handing the still-championship-less Netherlands their third loss in the last game. Spain won 1-0 (again) behind defense and almost literally last-minute heroics. There were a total of 14 yellow cards given: nine went to the Netherlands, and two of them went to Heitinga, booting him out in the 109th minute.

Thanks to that, the winner of the SoB 2010 FIFA Pick ‘Em is … Dan! It might not be that surprising, given his lead. Despite missing out on the consolation game, Brian still took 2nd, thanks to his buffer hold on the position. The Netherlands hurt Robert and Teddy, though Robert’s damage was mitigated by getting two points from the goal timing for the Bronze.

So there you have it. The Pick ‘Em is now complete, and you can view the entire results, as brought to you by Paul the Octopus, below.
