The game is run through the MLS website so if you have a log-in there or play the MLS Fantasy game you should be all set, otherwise it is easy to join. Click here and you should be ready to make your picks.
We’ve got World Cup fever around here and a lot of great content that is going to come your way even though the United States Men’s National Team isn’t in Russia. So, stop wallowing in self-pity about collective failures that were seven years in the making which seemingly have no real solution insight and fill out a bracket.
Will Messi finally get a major trophy for the people of Catalonia? Can Ronaldo prove that he’s the best player in the world even though he couldn’t beat the lowly USMNT in 2014? Will Germany repeat?

Will every American’s new favorite team and World Cup co-host Mexico make it past the round of 16 for the first time in 200 years? How will Italy, Holland, and Chile do? Were jokes like that ever not old to begin with?
In a little less than a day we’ll start to find out!
