The World Cup at work

Listen in RealAudio

Live, play-by-play blogs are one way World Cup fans can keep up with the action while they’re at work. The New York Times, USA Today and the Washington Post have respectable blog offerings. Another site, worldcupblog.org, also has a comprehensive live blog site, albeit with less of a filter than the more mainstream outlets. Based in a rented apartment in Berlin, a group of sports fans with some business acumen managed to provide live updates for all 62 World Cup match-ups so far. Some of the unique worldcupblog’s offerings, boasts partner Sean Keener, are a section devoted to referee calls and an analysis of the teams whose coaches required the players to abstain from sex during the tournament.
