Sports watch

Two highly recommended sports-related articles today that really have nothing to do with sports:

In this delightfully snooty article, the British analyze why Americans have been chanting "I believe that we will win" during the Wold Cup.  Their conclusion? "In other words--Americans are too ignorant to know any better."  (Now might be a good time to remind the British that although our FIFA run has ended, it lasted longer than theirs.)  (BBC)

Behind the scenes (or more accurately, overnight) at Wimbledon. How a Rufus the hawk keeps order at Wimbledon (and the pigeons away). (The Washington Post)
