Brazil Havaianas Winner

By Buzz Carrick

Just before moving to ESPNDallas we ran a contest to give way a pair of Brazil Havaianas.  Its one model of a series of Limited Edition summer 2010 Teams product sandals flip flops.  Here's what they look like.

our contest consisted of a simple question.  In what place/position did the US finish in the first ever FIFA World Cup?

The correct answer is, of course, 3rd.

The Unites States finished 3rd at the 1930 World Cup, ahead of Yugoslavia.  Uruguay, the hosts, won that tournament.  The US won their group, beating both Belgium and Paraguay, before losing the semi-final to Argentina.  There was no runner up game, the US was awarded 3rd by FIFA.

Or winner was randomly chosen from among the entries that had the correct answer, which was quite a few.

Winner: Dustin Siegrist.
