One guy's humorous ranking of who you should root for and some history of the World Cup and why it's great (also a FANTASTIC Donovan pic in there).

Fantasy Soccer: I forgot to post this last night, but we're doing a fantasy/pick'em league through Yahoo! You have to pick 5 minutes before the game is played (and can pick throughout the Group Stage).  Even if you don't get a pick in before the first or second game, you probably can still do it and have a reasonable chance to win.
