I know it's late, but given that the World Cup begins in under 24 hours, I figured I should post these photos before then.

So I was at Raffles City earlier this evening when I passed by the World Cup Lego exhibit. Other than the scenes with giant football players and officials, there's also this delightful stadium built entirely out of Lego pieces. On the left is a shot of the entire stadium, and on the right is a close-up of the left-hand side of the stadium (complete with electronic scoreboard). There must have been several thousand spectators in the Lego stadium itself. The amount of effort put into this is mind-boggling.

On a football-related note, if you're planning on setting up a World Cup pool in which the participants select their choices for each round (second round, quarter-finals, semi-finals, final and winner), here's a cool free web-based application which will help. Alternatively, you can try out the BBC Football World Cup Predictor, which enables you to chart out your feelings about each of the countries in a more logical fashion.
