=============================================
The FOOTBALL WORLD CUP '06 - LIVE in ASCII !!
=============================================


http://www.ascii-wm.net/ is offering all the World Cup games, live and in video.

For the full old-school experience, telnet over yourself:

telnet ascii-wm.net 2006


The only catch: they're in ASCII text. Oh, and only live streams. So you'll have to log on when matches are actually on. But you can see an awful lot and follow the match. I did it today from the office listening to my radio while watching the match in ASCII and doing work.

Special bonus: the stream provider/maintainer provides running commentary in often hilarious Deutschlisch.

I'm watching the Germany V Argentina game in the terminal and on TV at the same time. I can see it now I can see the normal picture though I couldn't make it out in isolation.
