So this week’s Weekly Reader is a special weekend edition…mostly because Wednesday was dedicated to celebrating the Blackhawk win with the rest of Chicago. Until living in Germany, I had never given soccer much attention. But that summer, Germany hosted the 2006 World Cup and Nuremberg was one of the host cities. To say the least, FuÃŸball Feber is infectious, and I quickly got caught up in the excitement. Below are some of the best links I’ve been collecting on the World Cup.

Linden wrote an excellent write-up on the various iPhone apps she’s been trying in anticipation of this weekend. I’ve been using the ESPN app and love it myself.
World Cup Advertising
Graphicology has a great retrospective of this year’s World Cup advertising.
Retrospective of World Cup Logos
Logo Design Love has posted a great retrospective of past logos. My favorite is Mexico ’86.

In German, but as the title says: it’s super-practical and ultra-portable!
Haven’t tried either of these, but promise good eye/data-candy.
