The Mighty MJD points us to a Web site of considerable terror: Heal Rooney, a page featuring a huge picture (purportedly) of injured England striker Wayne Rooney, who is still in danger of missing the World Cup. The premise of the site, apparently, is for you, the user, to roll your mouse over Rooney's foot to massage it in a rhythmic fashion, doing everything you can to send positive energy to Rooney (and his foot) to make sure he makes it back in time for the big tourney. And they say the true power of the Internet has yet to be unleashed.
In today's last piece of World Cup news, we introduce you to Graham Paramore, from New Zealand. He says he can "assist you with some of Excel's abundance of features," which is good, since we didn't know Excel had that many. But, oh, it does, including this truly outstanding World Cup spreadsheet, which is packed with automatically updating standings, scores, what-not. We'll be following along using it, and we suspect you'll want to as well.
