I don't know where I saw this, but it was this year, probably during the World Cup. Maybe an imgur link from Reddit, maybe a tweet? It was a list of soccer team names and scores. They were all fake names, [lovingly?] poking fun at mostly English Premier League team names, I think. Each locality and team name was more ridiculous than the last, and every score was 0-0. I don't even think it said soccer or football, but something goofy like "sportsball rankings" or similar. That's it. Can you please help me find it?
For a given game in the World Cup elimination rounds, spectators have to buy their tickets, and presumably have a seat assigned, before they know which teams will be playing. It seems like this would result in the stadium having fans of various loyalties more or less randomly scattered about. But on TV, they often show blocks of fans of one team seated together. How do they assign seats to World Cup ticketholders to ensure that fans are seated together? I have some guesses but I'd love to hear from someone who knows what method(s) FIFA actually uses.
We'll be arriving Sunday afternoon, both of us first-timers in Berlin. Any recommendations on where we should be for the game? (Pub, outdoor venue, anything goes).
I have tickets with my cousin and his kids (14/16 years old) to go to the Orioles game at 8:05pm on Sunday. But we also want to watch the World Cup Final somewhere first. Where would we be able to watch the game, with the teenagers in tow, so that we can get from there to Camden Yards easily/quickly? [more inside]
We'll be on the Cape near Truro in a house with no internet connection next week. What public places nearby could 3 or 4 of us go to see World Cup games on Tues and Wed, July 7 and 8? Both games are at 4:00 pm. Bars, restaurants, stores, the beach, kind strangers with a big screen TV...?

What with work and family life, I'm not getting to see that much of the World Cup. I do, however, have some time each day to listen to podcasts while riding the bus to and from work.

I will be driving through Albany on Sunday around 6 p.m. I want to pull over and watch the U.S.A. vs Portugal soccer game. Where is the best place to watch the game that is accessible to the NY Thruway? Thank you.
Sadly the Ghana Cafe is closed, and now my dad and I need a new venue to watch Ghana vs USA tomorrow. Hoping to find a place with fans of both teams, a clear view of the TV without jostling or dodging, and preferably Tusker or other African beer available. Any recommendations, DC mefites?
What are the best World cup liveblogs? I'm looking for people who will blogging during games and who will be both insightful and funny. Any people/organizations who will be livetweeting games will also be appreciated.

How can someone *listen* to World Cup matches, in the USA, either through a computer or a smartphone?

So, hook me up with Iran vs. Nigeria! [more inside]
I'm looking to go to Brazil with my male friend for about 6 weeks (from about June 1 to July 15). We'd like to rent a room, apartment, house, shared house, hostel for relatively cheap (preferably under $500 per person). It seems like if we go outside São Paulo city center we can get cheaper prices, how should we go about looking? I am aware of Airbnb and couchsurfing.com Thanks
A week or 2 ago, I came across a photo gallery on imgur.com of photos of Brazilian military police using APCs and bulldozers to tear down favela housing in preparation for the World Cup and Olympics. I think I found it via a link from mefi, or possibly reddit. I have searched both sites for it, and done some googling, but I just can not find it. Hope me?

I don't have cable or even a TV, but I do have the internet and I want to watch the World Cup. I can find a lot of ways to watch it "for free" but I am struggling to find a reliable way to make sure I can see most of the games live. My IP had very little advice on the matter. I am more than willing to pay for a reliable, high-quality stream.
