World Cup tipping - please join!

I'd like to invite all the readers of my blog to join the mini-leagues I have set up at a couple of World Cup tipping places. One is tipping, the other is fantasy league. Both free to enter, and both are just for bragging rights (although if you win the whole site, you can get some cash).

The tipping is at and the fantasy league is - the code to join my league is 31847-7496.

I know the guy who runs FPLI - he's the guy who gave me his seat at Highbury for the Villa game recently. Great guy.
