World Cup 2018 – Nearing the Finish
Dr. J is banging on my door trying to get me to update the scoring. Who knew he was so into soccer? Oh, wait, he told me to call it football. In the final rounds, teams advancing get 4, 8 and 16 points.
GorT advances to 32 points with England advancing to the semi-finals but it’s likely not enough to overcome the exits by Argentina and Brazil in order to catch up with Mandy or Doc.
The Mandarin, fresh from krav-gor-maga training, jumps up with Belgium advancing to 37 points and, until today’s loss by the same, had a chance to catch up to Dr. J.
So it looks like regardless of the other semi-final, Dr. J is going to win as GorT can’t catch him with a win by England. Having 3 of his 5 picks advance to the bracket round really helped. Now, I just need to get him to stop following the Phillies via our Twitter account…well, at least it’s not the Penguins.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
