The single piece of interesting news about the World Cup I've found thus far. The leader of a gang of Floridian football fans calling themselves "American Outlaws" evidently fell out of a window after hearing that the US tied a game.

Corey is one of the leaders of the American Outlaws, a fanatical group of U.S. soccer fans. He and hundreds of others packed into Fado’s Irish Pub, 900 S. Miami Ave., on Sunday for the big match.
He had stepped on to a ledge to scream in front of the floor-to-ceiling windows which were open to help cool off the stifling heat. "The ledge was apparently slippery with spilled beer." Ah, Florida Man.

Simple maybe, but I didn’t […]
