Who did you get in the sweeps?

by Royal Ginger » 10 May 2016 17:44

Bit early but the work sweeps for the Euros kicked off today. Office nerd developed a web-app that's actually pretty smart for it. Prizes are for Winner, most goals, fastest goal, fastest own goal, most yellow cards and fastest sending off.

I was second to pick and will be playing for the lower end prizes with Northern Ireland.

Who have you got?

Many many years ago I did a sweepstake for the Euro's with prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd...... completely forgetting that the Euro's didn't have a 3rd place play off like the World Cup :oops:

I'm running the sweepstake in our office.

Prizes for winner and runner up, then ones to keep the more people interested of worst team, team scoring the most goals, team containing the individual top scorer and most red cards

I bought the last two tickets in the Sweeps in a pub I frequent - one for me and one for a female friend from Belgium (who wasn't present). I got Switzerland. She got Belgium. I admit I tried to bribe the barman into letting me swap but he wasn't having any of that.

I got two - Turkey and Croatia.

Turkey are currently in a Truxican stand off with Albania and Ukraine for the coveted wooden spoon. Albania set the standard tonight, but I just feel that Ukraine want it more.

Im also trying to convince myself that Croatia are a 'live outsider' despite clearly knowing that they arent.

I got Northern Ireland. There were people who thought i'd drawn the short straw, but I was always quietly confident they may get out of the group. There were worse teams I could have had imo, and if I wasn't going to get one of the favourites i'm glad I got a British/Irish team anyway.

I've got a feeling this may be the year of the underdog... though it won't be Northern Ireland winning it.

I got Belgium, and subsequently had to give them away to the person who I forgot to include when organising the sweep.

So, no-one. :|
