Humor Sometimes, while browsing the net for news, I come accross things I just cannot not post. "Some enterprising Austrian Über-geeks [have created] a Telnet stream with, believe it or not, live ASCII footage of matches being played [at the World Cup Football]. Simply fire up a command prompt and type 'telnet ascii-wm.net 2006' and you'll find a live 'video' stream from 10 minutes before kick-off (or should that be boot-up?)." I also look forward to the Wimbledon version that resembles Pong.

"According to wikipedia, modern SOCCER"

Sorry, but it's football to 95%+ of earths population.

"Going by popularity alone, I think the rugby ripoff won easily. "

Uh, hardly. The number of people who watch and play football (with their feet) is vastly larger than all superbowls ever put together.

"Even the euros know what real football is"
Yes indeed we do, it's the one you play with your feet, not your hands.
