World Sporting Events... the distractions

Sporting events can be distracting, especially the World Cup and the Tour d'France (which started this weekend). It isn't always the matches or races themselves, but the opportunity to see the world, literally. No, I'm not talking about German stadium architecture or the French countryside. In the spirit of cultural relations, I submit the following: FoxSports' gallery of some fans at the World Cup and Pez Cycling News' Distractions du Tour (and distractions for any other month).
