Cool pictures of the Brazilian soccer players in their locker room. The site the pictures are hosted on looks like a gay site though. [Link]

How Brazilian soccer players get their names

Post by Mark

An interesting article I found via Kottke that talks about how Brazilian players dont have last names (Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Cafu, Fred..) and why that is. [Link]

Players with the same first name often change their moniker to differentiate themselves. In recent decades, there have been several Ronaldos at the national level. One became known as Ronaldao, meaning “big Ronaldo.” Another became Ronaldinho, meaning “little Ronaldo.” When another Ronaldinho came along in the late 1990s, he was called Ronaldinho Gaucho—that is, “little Ronaldo from Rio Grande do Sul.” Eventually, the first Ronaldo left the Brazilian national squad, so Ronaldinho became Ronaldo. Ronaldinho Gaucho became Ronaldinho.

Buy World Cup Tickets

Post by Mark

I knew they were going to be expensive but I didn’t know they were going to be THAT expensive. I am not even talking about the $21,000 ticket for a skybox seat in the final game I am talking about ticket prices to regular games for example the cheapest ticket to the Argentine Vs Netherland game is like $1,400! I need to start making more money… [Link]

Foot Locker Kuwait

I was at Marina Mall today and noticed that Foot Locker will be opening up where the Bear Factory used to be (Across from Tommy). It seems Alshaya got the franchise to Kuwait.

2006 Fifa World Cup Schedule

Post by Mark

A friend of mine just emailed me a 2006 World Cup schedule. It has all the dates and times of all the matches which is cool BUT its also an excel file with some cool features. Once a match finishes you can enter the scores of the two teams in the excel file and it will then calculate how many points each team is awarded and mark it down on the group chart.

Its very nifty especially if you want to see what would happen if a team loses or wins a match before the game actually takes place. You can download the file and enter random scores now to see how it works. [Link]
