North Korea (whose state news service, following last week’s 2-1 loss to Brazil, didn’t mention the final score) decided to show today’s World Cup match live to their citizens… during which they gave up seven goals to Portugal. Suspicion: they won’t show the next game.
Fascinating bitchfest on the BBC discussion site around Scottish folks not supporting England in international sporting events. Interestingly, most of the kneejerk racist comments are from the English, accusing Scots, amongst other things, of being “bitter miserable idiots”.
Wow, the Beeb are streaming live video of all their World Cup coverage. Geo-limited to the UK only, but still, that’s a lot of bits to shuffle. I can’t imagine office IT folks are particularly thrilled about this move!
