Lots of links this morning. Just add coffee and serve:
It's World Cup draw day, and they're already linked up in Leipzig. JABS will have live updates here later today beginning at around 2 p.m. Eastern. Heidi Klum is there -- she's wearing turquoise, perhaps -- and you never know what Sepp Blatter will say, so keep it here, footballists, as we get ready for the tombola. (We didn't make it -- again -- but our brave Canadian side has been drawn into Gruppe II of the 2006 World Cup of Foosball.)
Today's German translation, courtesy of The Fiver: Todesgruppe, or "group of death".
