Brazil, the hosts and favorites to win the World Cup, take on Croatia to start the tournament. The Seleção seem very relaxed in spite of the pressure of being expected to win it all, but the Croatians are looking forward to playing the role of underdogs and hope to start the tournament off with a shock.
Ten BISERGSers will get their campaigns underway today. The five Brazil supporters all used their first picks to take Brazil and need to pickup as many points as possible from this match or their BISERGS dreams could come crashing down on day one. Max Snyder had an intuition about the Croatians and used his first round pick to get them. A victory for his side would make him the early favorite to win the BISERGS. The rest of the Croatia owners would see a positive result today as a huge bonus as they probably don't expect Croatia to give them any points until they play Mexico and Cameroon. Allie and her father Dan will be together in their support of the underdogs, but two other families are divided. Matt and Carol will be cheering against each other and Max has sided with mom on this one. Ivan is looking forward to welcoming his dad to the BISERGS with a resounding Brazil victory. Irma/Byron, Nate and Greg are all hoping to see Brazil start the tournament off with a lot of BISERGS points today.
