    I like this story from popbitch:-

    A big bookmaker told us they'd just
    taken a 50k bet on Belgium to win
    the World Cup. A win would net
    the punter a million quid.

    And then we heard it from another.
    The same bet. And another... Now
    we think we've counted six 50k
    bets in the last week.

    Something weird going on? Well, not
    sure, but this could explain it.

    A big Belgian supermarket chain
    launched a massive marketing
    promotion - shop three times in
    the World Cup, and if Belgium win
    your fourth shop is free. No doubt
    the marketing muppets were patting
    themselves on the back. Until the
    bean-counters worked out it could
    result in a six million euro hole
    in their finances, as shoppers
    rush to fill their boots.

    Hence the rush to get some money
    in the betting markets to pay it
    off. Take a 300k hit now or a
    6 million one in July.

    FYI: There's also a rumour going round
    of a similar thing if Switzerland
    make the QFs - any Swiss readers
    know anything? email hello@popbitch.com

    I'm not patriotic at all with football, and don't care if England get knocked out in the group stage

    I'm going for Argentina or Spain
