Mad Swede makes his house a World Cup shrine

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - A Swedish man gripped by World Cup fever painted his whole house in the blue and yellow colours of the national flag while his wife was at work.
"I knew she would say no, so there was no point in asking her about it," Janne Petterson said on Thursday.
"It was really fun to see her face when she got home."
He decided to paint the two-storey building, in a suburb of Stockholm, as a tribute to the Swedish team and win a newspaper competition for tickets to the World Cup final.

I'm not lovin' it: World Cup sponsorship blasted by British health journal
PARIS (AFP) - The prestigious British medical weekly The Lancet has blasted FIFA for letting the World Cup be sponsored by makers of booze, fast food and soda.

The international football federation was also scolded for backpeddaling from a ban on lighting up in stadiums, and for allowing branded tobacco paraphernalia as official merchandise.
The World Cup, Olympic Games and other big sporting events should not allow their image of health and wellbeing be hijacked by products that are linked to alcohol abuse, obesity and other diseases, The Lancet says.

Fifteen global brands have each paid an estimated 40 million dollars for the right to be an "official partner" in the 2006 World Cup.

Have a great day.
