Popping up all over

I've seen more references to the World Cup from non-soccer sources than ever, which is a really nice thing to see. Makes me feel that more people are getting into this tournament than ever before. I realize that it won't carry over, but you gotta start somewhere.

Today, I read a story about how web browsers are getting smarter and it mentioned that the next wave will be able to do things like check for updates, or soccer scores. Granted, that was from an Opera spokesman, which is European, but it's something. Also, sex columnnist Dan Savage mentioned that something was as common as "Laura Bush's orgasms or US goals at the World Cup". Personally, I don't doubt that GW can bring it, but the fact that the World Cup gets mentioned in a sex column is Burell's points waiting to happen.
