Software for football fans

Well we all know ppl at microsoft make a lot of weird applications the best one being the so called windows, this is just another one of them. This is surprisingly targetted at football fans. Yes you saw it right its not a typo. Well its called Microsoft Soccer Scoreboard. This application lets you follow your favourite teams schedules, their standing in their group during the 2006 worldcup. Similarly you can check the same for other teams too. you can also get the complete results. This sure seems like a nice application. As of now its non functional since football worldcup hasnt started. But for those of you especially those in chennai who can't follow football on TV because of the Sons of a b*****s, this can be really useful. You can download it directly from microsoft's website HERE. For this you need to make sure that you are running a valid ie a genuine copy of windows or else you won't be able to download it. One more small thing, this application is only for windows xp.
