Hello all, seeing as it's a) the offseason and b) the world cup, we've taken it upon ourselves to create a World Cup style tournament, but instead of soccer the teams are playing imaginary combat between the manifestations of what the team is named after. Our preview info won't be as pretty as SBNation's layout of the real World Cup preview, but we can dream. Here are the groups, sorted by category:

Group A - American People

  • A Blackhawk
  • A Columbus Blue Jacket
  • A Long Islander
  • A Texas Ranger
  • Group B - Canadian People

  • A Canadien
  • A Canuck
  • A King - Canadian because America doesn't have Kings
  • An Ottawa Senator
  • Group C - Mammals

  • A Bruin
  • A Coyote
  • A Panther
  • A Sabre-Tooth Cat (Predator)
  • Group D - Weather

  • A Hurricane
  • Flames
  • Lightning
  • Maple Leafs
  • Group E - Nature

  • A Shark
  • An Avalanche
  • Oil
  • The Minnesota Wilderness
  • Group F - Man-Made

  • A Jet
  • A Sabre
  • The Blues
  • The Capitol Building
  • Group G - Birds

  • A Duck
  • A Flyer
  • A Penguin
  • A RedWing
  • Group H - Other

  • A Star
  • The Devil
  • (We only have 30 instead of 32 teams so the last two basically get auto-bids to the knockout stages. Deal with it.

    Please be so kind as to rank each group, 1-4:
