Games

Hasbro, the makers of the game of Monopoly are updating the landmarks featured in the game. Go here to vote for your favorite landmarks in 22 cities. You can vote for a city once a day until 12 May.
********************************************

In 41 days, the 2006 World Cup will begin play here in Germany (9 June-9 July). The games will be played in 12 cities. There will be 5 games played in the city where I live (the US team is playing a game here). Imagine the Super Bowl, the Final Four, NBA Championships and the World Series taking place at the same time. THAT is what the World Cup is like.

From the FIFA website, here is a map of the countries sending teams to the 2006 World Cup:


As with any futball game/tournament, there will be LOTS of hooligans (imagine a SUPER fan) here for the games. According to the BBC, the United Kingdom has barred over 3,000 known hooligans from even traveling to Germany for the matches. All must surrender their passports 10 days before the start of the games, and on each day that England plays, those that are barred from travelling must check in, to make sure they didn't travel to the games. The entire article is here. In defense of England, I must say that hooligans are not only from the UK.

To put it mildly, it will be crazy here.
